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.

Fed up with nuisance calls?

Today

Posted by Colin James in Open Forum

Mobile phone users can opt out of nuisance calls by text message for the first time from today.

 

Blocked.jpg

 
The "text-to-register" service allows members of the public to add their number to the "do not call" database of the Telephone Preference Service (TPS).
 
Mobile users can sign up by texting "TPS" followed by their number to 78070.
 
The TPS should send a text reply confirming the number has been added to its database.
 
The service may take 28 days to become fully effective but customers should notice a reduction in unwanted sales and marketing voice calls within days.
 
It is illegal for organisations to make unsolicited calls to numbers registered with the TPS unless they get consent.
 
Communications regulator Ofcom said only 48% of people familiar with the TPS are aware that they can register a mobile number, compared with 88% for landlines - meaning only 2.9 million UK mobiles are registered.
 
John Mitchison, head of the TPS, said: "Rogue callers operate illegally and against the interests of ordinary people.
 
"Texting will make it easier for people to register their mobile numbers on the TPS, which is the only official no-call list, and help us stamp out rogue callers once and for all by giving the Information Commissioner more ammunition to prosecute these cases."
 
Baroness Neville Rolfe, the minister responsible for data protection, said: "Nuisance calls are incredibly intrusive and can cause significant distress, particularly to elderly and vulnerable members of society.
 
"This new service from the TPS and Ofcom will help protect people with mobile phones, making it easier for them to register via text and opt out of the call list."
 
Spam Texts
 
What to do if you get a spam text message:
 
Recent Which? research revealed that only 1 in 10 people are aware that you can report spam texts to your provider using a free text service. Just forward the message to 7726, or 87726 if you’re with Vodafone. Once reported you should get an automated response and some further instructions.

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.

Widemarsh St pedestrianised hours

06 Apr 2016

Posted by Bilbobobby in Open Forum
As you know traffic is prohibited from entering or leaving the High Town side of Widemarsh St., between 1030 & 1630 daily. We all also know the council failed to put in place traffic regulations to prevent/manage parking at all times.
So what's happening
At great expense the road layout was upgraded with a defined road and footpaths. Now mornings involve cars and delivery vehicles filling the delivery bays and straddling the footpaths. This is further compounded with builders vans parking on the footpaths all day whilst working at the new fish restaurant.
Car owners have caught on quite quickly to beat the parking costs and parking all day for free. Cyclists ride along the street (road and footpath) in both directions all day.
So how long will it be before harm is caused to pedestrians through driver disregard and no enforcement.
Worcester has a similar problem in The Shambles with an elderly lady crushed by a lorry last year. The council there are undertaking a public consultation to see what the local needs are
Who is the enforcement authority and who will take responsibility and sort out the obvious dangers that I feel will get worse
Debate!

New Beattie Ave Apartments Need New Roof!

08 May 2016

Posted by Colin James in The Oval

You may have noticed the scaffolding has gone back up on the recently completed apartments in Beattie Avenue. I have been informed that there were problems with the installation of the roof and as a result a whole new roof replacement is now required, worrying to say the least.
