Where's the willow tree gone on Edgar Street roundabout?

21 Jun 2016

Posted by megilleland in Open Forum

Noticed tonight that the large willow tree on the roundabout has been chopped down and all that remains is a pile of logs. Anyone know why? This is in a conservation area isn't it? Could the Highways Agency be making plans to alter the road layout and add more traffic lights? With the high traffic pollution in this area the tree would have been absorbing much of it and doing a lot of good.

EU referendum - In or Out?

25 May 2015

Posted by megilleland in Open Forum

With the General Election now over - there is possibly only two years (2017) before we get a referendum on whether to stay in the EU or get out. Having believed we would have had a change of government, nationally and locally by now, I do not have much confidence that any referendum will be conducted fairly in order that the ruling poitical parties get the result they and the EU want.


What are the benefits of being in or out for Hereford and the county? Maybe some information and facts through this topic could help us make a reasoned decision when voting, although I think we will be staying in the EU at any cost. Not for the benefit of the citizens, but for all those entwined in the machinations of the EU political and monetary systems.

I think they should of provided more homes by building a few more of these and maybe even added another floor. Give it ten years and they will wish they had, I am sure.

Southern Link Road Preferred Route

08 Nov 2014

Posted by megilleland in Planning
Herefordshire Council Newsroom 7th November 2014
On Thursday 13 November Herefordshire Council’s Cabinet will consider route SC2 as the preferred route for the Southern Link Road.
A total of eleven route options for the new road have been considered and appraised by the council’s consultants Parsons Brinkerhoff and the results are set out in a preferred options report which will be considered by cabinet.
The assessment has concluded that in order to address the transport problems and promote growth within the South Wye area, a new Southern Link Road from the A49 to the A465 (with a link to B4349) is necessary. 
Public consultation took place in July and August 2014 looking at four shortlisted routes. Following consideration of the feedback, a detailed appraisal of a three alternative routes suggested by the public and third parties also took place.
Each of the three additional routes were appraised to the same level of detail as the four options consulted upon. Each of the final routes were appraised in terms of engineering considerations, economic outcomes, impact to the environment, and an assessment of the social implications.
The Southern Link Road forms part of the South Wye Transport Package, which aims to promote economic growth within Hereford while tackling specific problems in the South Wye area.
If Cabinet approve the SC2 route, a planning application will be submitted before the end of the year.  The cabinet report and the preferred option report can be viewed on the council’s website.


According to the report and Hereford Times this route will cost £25 million which appears amazingly cheap when compared with the costs for the city Link Road. Note that this route is furthest out from the city - no doubt so it can be infilled with housing. The loss of woodland at Grafton Wood should be compensated with planting of trees and screening along route.

HT take the Council to task (finally)

22 Jun 2016

Posted by twowheelsgood in Open Forum

Last weeks Hereford Times leader column was a scathing attack against the ongoing cult of secrecy that still operates within the Council and specifically why no one is allowed to know what's happening about Peter Robinson - is he in or out? Still no one knows or is telling. On balance it looks like he's gone.

Unusually, the leader is now online and is provoking some useful comments, inc a passionate speech from the usually retiring bobby47.
Hereford Times opinion: Public has a right to know the facts
"He was until recently one of the most important officers in Herefordshire Council – holding the purse strings of our squeezed public finances.
But trying to get the facts from our own local authority, regarding the possible departure of chief financial officer Peter Robinson – our public servant, whose salary is funded from public money – is like trying to delve into the boardroom machinations of a private company.
The circumstances are probably completely unremarkable – perhaps we’ve got the wrong end of the stick, but the council has insisted on maintaining a shroud of secrecy over the matter which we would argue is unreasonable.
And it begs the question of why?
We will get an answer, having submitted an FOI request, but you’ve got to ask – should the public have to pay for our request (for it will cost the council money), when it is a perfectly legitimate request for information which we would argue should be in the public domain?
People are entitled to ask what, if anything, is our publicly funded, democratically elected council hiding?
If there are ramifications for the public purse due to circumstances surrounding this matter, we, the public, have a democratic right to know."

National Bike Week 2016

11 Jun 2016

Posted by twowheelsgood in Open Forum

National Bike Week 2016 starts today with thousands of events all over the country, except, sadly, in Hereford, where Herefordshire Council seem to have abandoned support for this key promotion of cycling for all ages and levels. Strange how they constantly bang on about better cycling provision, choosing how you move, but when push comes to shove, nothing.


Bike Week is an annual opportunity to promote cycling, and show how cycling can easily be part of everyday life by encouraging ‘everyday cycling for everyone’. Demonstrating the social, health and environmental benefits of cycling, the week aims to get people to give cycling a go all over the UK, whether this be for fun, as a means of getting around to work or school, the local shops or just to visit friends. The 2016 event will take place 11-19th June but events still take place through September and beyond!

This year’s Bike Week has a special focus and will encourage people to use their bikes to cycle to work. Many people will use the events to ride and take part in ‘buddy’ rides with colleagues, scope out the easiest route to their place of work or take part in work place challenges.

Cycle Hereford seems to be taking a pass on this as well.

Hereford Wheelers are doing their bit with their ’Come and Try It’ 10 mile time trial on Thursday evening at Allensmore Village Hall. Start at 6.30pm and all riders are required to sign on at least ten minutes before start. Open to all ages and abilities!

Illuminati,NWO,conspiracy theory's & the impendin...

08 Jan 2016

Posted by lpusseycat in Open Forum

The thing to note is After the shooting BBC interviewed 2 witnesses one was American one was English you did not see there faces .Ask yourself the question no French people around in that part of Paris seems odd it is the contrived plan by the Illuminati to put everyone in a false sense of fear. They create a problem wait for the peoples reaction then offer a solution that fits there agenda. Go on you tube and read about Albert Pikes letter to Manzzini written in 1878 then try and tell me i am wrong in what i have just written.

Traffic Lights Campaign - Part -Time Lights 7pm-7am

18 Apr 2014

Posted by Colin James in Open Forum

I have now implemented phase II of our traffic lights campaign and that is in the form of a petition from the very start!


[Please note that this is totally separate to our lights out campaign. This petition deals only with the traffic lights at night]



We would like both the Highways Agency and Herefordshire Council to allow the traffic lights at the junctions
where the A465 meets the A49 (Asda roundabout/junction) and
where the A49 meets the A438 Newmarket St (Old Market roundabout/junction)
to become part-time signals during non peak times from 7pm-7am
with exception to the pedestrian crossings which would still be in operation for the safety of pedestrians.
All of these traffic lights are relatively pointless during off peak times and often motorists become frustrated and impatient while being forced to sit at red lights, this can often be at 2am when there are clearly no other vehicles in sight!
By signing our petition you are in strong favour of these signals being changed to PART-TIME status from 7pm-7am


Please read the petition and you can offer your support by simply signing it.
