Three Rivers is a local government district found toward the south eastern corner of the ceremonial county of Hertfordshire, in central England. The district’s name is inspired by the River Chess, River Colne and River Gade, all of which flow within its borders at one point or another.
The district of Three Rivers is a so-called non-metropolitan local government district and does not feature inside its borders any of the largest or better known settlements within the county of Hertfordshire. It is however home to the town of Rickmansworth, which itself houses the district council, and a handful of other settlements including the likes of Chorleywood, Maple Cross and South Oxhey.
The Creation Of The Three Rivers
In a story similar to that of the majority of England’s local government districts, Three Rivers was officially formed on the 1st April 1974 as a direct result of the changes brought about by the passage of the 1972 Local Government Act. That act reorganised the UK’s local government and created a whole raft of new districts and boroughs from mergers of smaller, former administrative entities.
In the case of Three Rivers, the newly formed district came about as a result of a merger of the former Rickmansworth Urban District and Chorleywood Urban District with part of the Watford Rural District. That amalgamation created the 34 square mile local government district in basically the form that it is still recognisable today.
Modern Day Three Rivers
Today’s Three Rivers district covers a total land area of 33.88 square miles and according to the latest available population statistics and is home to around 88,000 permanent residents. That means that the district has a population density of close to 2,600 per square mile which is actually comparatively high.
Having that relatively high population density is likely to have a number of impacts on the district and its residents, but the one we are interested in is the fact that it makes accidents and injuries more likely. It is this impact which leads us to turn our attention toward the issues surrounding making a Three Rivers non fault claim.
Making A Three Rivers Non Fault Claim
It is if and when an individual falls victim to an injury and someone else was definitively to blame, that they are entitled to make a Three Rivers non fault claim. This is the way by which they can seek to receive compensation for the physical, emotional and financial hardships thrown up by their injury.
