Cabinet to Consider Hereford Bypass Routes

11 Jan 2018

Posted by Colin James in Open Forum

Recommendations to approve the consultation will be made to Cabinet

Hereford Bypass.jpg

Herefordshire Council’s Cabinet will next week consider proposals to commence the next stage of public consultation on the Hereford Transport Package, which includes the Hereford Bypass and associated walking, cycling, bus and public realm improvements.
 
The consultation will provide valuable feedback to inform the future decision on the preferred route for the bypass and other travel measures.
 
Subject to Cabinet approving the process, the consultation period will consist of events to provide the opportunity to review proposals and feedback for residents, landowners and the public in early February.
 
Councillor Philip Price, Cabinet Member Infrastructure said:
“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.”
 

 

 

Douglas Barrat, Chairman Invest Herefordshire added:
“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.”

Wormelow Post Office to Reopen

15 Jan 2018

Posted by Hereford Voice in Open Forum

The Carrot and Wine Store in Wormelow will become home to the Post Office on Friday, January 26th.

Post Office.png

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.

Post Office services will be delivered from an open-plan till alongside the retail counter of the convenience store throughout the village shop’s opening hours.
 
The opening hours will be Monday – Sunday: 7am – 9pm, which the Post Office says will make it very convenient for customers to visit as it will be more than double the branch’s previous opening hours.
 
The re-opening will be part of a major modernisation programme across the Post Office network designed to make it easier for customers to do business, through longer opening hours and modern open plan environments.

Carillion

14 Jan 2018

Posted by Denise Lloyd in Open Forum

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

 

Government holds crunch meeting with Carillion - Financial Times

11 hours ago - The fate of Carillion, one of Britain's largest construction companies, looks set to be decided at a crunch meeting with government figures at 10am on Sunday. The meeting was brought forward as Downing Street grappled with the implications of the potential collapse of the group, which has numerous

Road Safety

13 Jan 2018

Posted by Ubique in Open Forum

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
