Recommendations to approve the consultation will be made to Cabinet
“There has been talk of a bypass for Hereford for as long as I can remember. Since the 1960s Herefordshire Council has had aspirations to deliver the project; never quite making it across the finishing line.”“In 2018, there is a real appetite, both locally and regionally, to improve connectivity to the West Midlands, South Wales and consequently, the rest of the UK, to create the infrastructure to facilitate business growth, to build new housing, develop better options for walking and cycling and alleviate Hereford’s traffic congestion problems.”““Extensive work has taken place since we consulted on the scheme in April 2017. The core strategy corridor has been surveyed and assessed and we have gathered information on homes, businesses, heritage sites, woodland, landscape and conservation sites which we have considered in detail. Other areas we have looked at include impacts on flooding, noise and air quality.”“This information has helped us to consider a long list of route corridors. These have all been assessed to produce a short list which will be considered further following consultation with local people and businesses. This is an opportunity for the public to shape how we move forward.”
“Hereford is at a crossroads, there are two directions the city and wider county can take; one route is to growth, investment, job creation and house building, leading to a sustainable future for generations to come. The other route is not such a bright prospect.“The Hereford Bypass is the most significant infrastructure development the county has ever seen and the biggest opportunity to secure the future of our communities and businesses.“I urge those businesses based in Hereford to make sure they get involved in this next stage of consultation and help to shape the business landscape for years to come.”

The Carrot and Wine Store in Wormelow will become home to the Post Office on Friday, January 26th.
The Post Office at the former village shop closed in 2014, and was then demolished.
When the Carrot and Wine store opened last year it presented an opportunity to restore Post Office services to Wormelow.

According to the FT Carillion could well go into Administration as early as tomorrow which could well mean the loss of thousands of jobs not just direct employees but also the thousands of sub contracted employees.
Should this be allowed to happen?
Should the Government bail them?
There are so many unanswered questions not least of all why have the Government continued to give them contracts when they should have known about the Company's financial state - due dilligence?
The Banks have continued to prop them up why?
Whichever way this goes it will affect the whole country

Re the RTC on Roman Rd the other evening.
A friend of ours was going home from work , three cars behind the converted van , van suddenly stops ( after hitting the pedestrian ) the two cars in front of our friends overtake the van - perhaps not knowing what happened , our friend quickly realised what had happened, stopped, hazard lights on.
Gets out of her car and realises that she was very exposed to passing traffic because she was dressed all in black .She did help at the scene but she would have felt safer wearing a high vis jacket or vest.
( In case anybody is thinking , yes she did give her name and address to the Police )
Cut a long story short she has now purchased two high viz coat quite cheaply to carry in her car for these types of emergencies.
I have carry two high vis vests in my car for me and my wife for a very long time, )
Really it's just Ubiques tip of the day, of course a number of members have already purchased the high viz jackets / vests
Apparently it's compulsory throughout most of Europe but not the UK
