Every four years, the residents of Kings Langley (Hertfordshire, GB) elect the Kings Langley Parish Council to conduct the most localised form of government and to provide the additional public services which make Kings Langley such a special place. Most of the village, to the West of the Canal, is administered in the Parish of Kings Langley, the Borough of Dacorum and the County of Hertfordshire. The small part of the village to the East of the Canal is in the Parish of Abbots Langley and the district of Three Rivers, with the River Gade/Canal boundary separating state and church dating back to the Domesday Book.
