In Herefordshire Council latest news
Statement in response to media enquiries, 17 January 2018
Herefordshire Council can confirm that it is actively working with this individual to secure accommodation within the county.
Unfortunately, to date the individual has not provided all the documentation needed to legally register for housing. However, regardless of this, the council’s housing team has found and offered two different forms of accommodation, in areas which were agreeable to the individual, but which have subsequently been turned down.
We are continuing to work with the individual to help them secure appropriate housing.

Herefordshire Council’s ambitious plans for growth are a step closer to delivery with the appointment of Keepmoat Homes Ltd (Keepmoat) as a ‘preferred bidder’ to become the council’s partner developer at cabinet today, Thursday 27 July 2017.
Councillor Harry Bramer, cabinet member contracts and assets said:“The appointment of Keepmoat as our preferred bidder and subsequently our partner developer means that the council retains its ability to raise capital from the council’s land holdings, whilst controlling the nature, speed and character of the county’s development.Keepmoat will provide support for local businesses, third sector groups and the community as well as improving skills and educational attainment through training and apprenticeships. This in turn will enable the development of new economic activity to address the problem of low wages in the county.”

I have just seen someones reply to an e-mail to Highways England regarding the state of the railings over the New bridge.
What do you think, back in November I wrote to Highways England in connection with Greyfriars Bridge asking when they would re paint or replace the railings. Suddenly a week ago they called me, they had commissioned a report into the state of the railings, they agree that it needs repainting and this is planned for 2020/21 financial year, so I success I thought, until I read the report that they emailed me. As part of the report there is also a report from there Health and Safety people. ‘ the open aspect of the bridge is seen as a distraction and they plan to solve this by blanking off the railings over the bridge where you can see the river and also add a further fence on top of the railings so that nobody will be distracted by the river as they cross the bridge’ from that I read that a 6’ to 8’ fence would be erected the length of the bridge. I have asked both the Hereford Times and Your Herefordshire to further question Highways England over their proposal, but interested to hear what residents of Hereford feel about this proposal.

Cyclists on Footpaths!
Should cyclists be allowed on footpaths?
I ask the question because this morning I was walking along Belmont Avenue and a chap on a bike knocked into me from behind and almost knocked me to the floor as he came speeding past me on along the footpath on his bike. He turned around and shouted sorry pal but to be honest it not only startled me but I will probably have a bruise on my arm. I could have easily lost my balance and fallen into the road.
I thought riding a bicycle on a footpath was illegal? I appreciate that some people do not like riding on the roads and most of the councils in the country are implementing cycle lanes where they can but if the roads are narrow in the first place it makes it very difficult. I always remeber growing up that the police would tell you to get off your bike and walk on footpaths but that does not appear to happen anymore.

Why are our beautiful Medieval City Walls being left to ruin?
I have mentioned this in the recent topic about a number of increased weeds in our city but I do think this justifies a unique topic.
Just look at the weeds growing from the top of this section along Gunners Lane.
Hereford Voice is highlighting just how bad this has become in an attempt to provoke some action and possible restoration from the Council. Hopefully, we can encourage them to put a maintenance plan in place going forward. The Herefordshire County Council need to look at having the weeds removed and also look at cleaning and repairing any unstable sections of the City Walls.
The survival of our Medieval City Walls is very important, this is our heritage and therefore should be protected for future generations to come, after all this site is a scheduled monument protected by law.

They demand we pay them nigh on 100 Billion pounds to exit the Union and provide all the economic migrants who've settled here, were once resident here, together with all their close and extended family members who've yet to come to Britain and all of their unborn children who may never visit our Country must be guaranteed full rights that allow every single one of them to receive their free health care, their education, their housing and all the financial benefits that our ancestors worked so hard to win for us their indigenous British White, Black and Asian descendants.
No matter the absurdity of these demands from the EU Commision, which is essentially their dishonourable way of extracting money from us, the Commision will happily destroy our great nation so that no other member state will dare ever contemplate a life outside their totalitarian, neo communistic authoritarian federal state that rules from the centre by unelected politically lightweight British hating surfs to the will of Germany and France.
Despite the ongoing negotiations,the outcome is now unavoidable predictable. Unless some other member state brings about some other unforeseen challenge to the Commision that brings about the fall of this empire of dirt, we in Britain will now never leave this Union. Our money and our sovereign wealth will continue to be diverted Eastwards so that the poor nations will become richer and the Western nations poorer so that the logical outcome will be attained. Every single EU nation, with the exception of Germany and France, who are by design our future continental leaders and power brokers, will all become an economic area where big business can flourish on the back of Free Movement Of People and federalism of Europe will be complete. Cheap labour is the key and in Europe we have millions of people who are content to become a component part of this highly profitable economic excercise that sees the poor people paying for its existence and the rich and wealthy business giants reaping the rewards of the emerging economic markets that our money is now creating in the East of the EU zone.
Once the negotiations are done, and the demands will be nigh on impossible to accept, there will be a second referendum and the British people will understandable give up, surrender their sovereignty, concede defeat and give the ruling elite exactly what they wanted and expected in the first bloody place. A vote to remain in!

Some good work being carried out all this week along the Newton Brook in Belmont. The brook has not really been cleaned out in years so it was good to see a JCB making light work of it.
This work was paid for by Herefordshire Council and there is now a program for maintenance along this stretch.
This work was undertaken following constant pressure to do something from Cllr Tracy Bowes who has been chasing them for months as this is a flood risk. They tried to clear some of the brook near Jubilee field on the last community action day but the silt was above their wellies.
They are monitoring the other parts of the brook and this has been included in the tender for work for next year.
December, January and February have been highlighted as good times for tree and shrub maintenance and coppicing but there is a plan now which should see additional work carried out throughout the year.
