    Herefordshire housing record

    Well whatever the solution from the Labour Party is (and they don't seem to want to add it to their post) they have some work to do if they intend to influence the Council's decision making as they have zero Councillors at present.

    Herefordshire housing record

    Desperate need for affordable bungalows similar to the semi circle of bungalows in Clehonger. I think they are Herefordshire Housing but they are perfect - they have everything that is needed easy to maintain and easy to clean etc. Purpose built years ago and probably a long waiting list.

    Herefordshire housing record

    The Office of National Statistics has recently published new figures that show the projected rise in number of households is not nearly as great as previously thought. I think that means that the total number of new homes Herefordshire Council wants to get built doesn't need to be so high. But we do need so-called "affordable homes". We definitely need more flats/apartments/small homes close into town so people can easily walk or cycle to shops, jobs, schools etc. and not spend their wages on transport. Developers don't make their usual huge profits on those though!

    Hereford Voice. Use it or lose it

    I would be sorry to lose Hereford Voice, but it does need more people to use it, like there used to be. It is an ideal platform for sharing information and comments, and I look at it to find out things that are going on that are not reported in the Hereford Times. I hope this slow down in use doesn't mean that folks no longer care?

    Swarovski store closed down

    Yes, I distinctly remember Cllr Harlow telling us that when Prezzo and Chimichanga closed there were other restaurant chains "queuing up" to come to Hereford! I've never been in Swarovski, but sorry to see any newly empty shop.

    Swarovski store closed down

    Yes they did.I know someone who directly knew these two restaurants were going to close then I went to a customer/management meeting where I was told not only that they were not closing and all speculation on social media was false but they had stores and restaurants waiting to fill them.looking on the estate agents site they are both stilll available. I won't be going to another meeting,I hate being lied to.

    Can you help?

    THE LABOUR party in Hereford is hoping readers may be able to help locate the whereabouts of the Sydney Box Trophy. The trophy, pictured, was established by the Trades Council in memory of Sydney Box, the first parliamentary Labour candidate for Hereford in 1918 and founder of the Hereford Workers' Union. It was awarded annually to the best apprentice at Hereford College. Roger Windsor from Hereford and South Herefordshire Labour Party said: "When the Trades Council disbanded the trophy appeared to go missing and we should like to re-introduce it in connection with the Herefordshire and Ludlow College and the Chamber of Commerce but we cannot find it." He is appealing for help to find it. Do you know anything about it? If you can help, email roger@mailwindsor.co.uk.

    Swarovski store closed down

    Sad to see a shop close. (Great joy for the OLM dissenters) As to a retailer being lined up = good. But I seem to remember that when the two restaurants closed the OLM said they had new tenants lined up - they remain empty

    Herefordshire housing record

    Since April 2011, a total of 2,379 new houses have been completed in Herefordshire as against the County Council strategy to build 3,850 new homes. The target figure shows a shortfall of nearly 1,500 homes or just 62% of the Council’s target for new homes were completed during the past six years. The provision of affordable homes also shows a derisory outcome. Over the past six years just 29% of completed homes were “affordable” according to the Council’s published figures. Under 700 affordable homes in six years, just an average of 115 homes per year.

    Swarovski store closed down

    Discounted rents were between six & nine months depending on size of unit . Another retailer is already lined up to take this store.

    Are the discounted rents coming to an end ? If so a few more will disappear in time . Hereford was boxing well above its weight thinking this development would be a success.

    Well done to all involved . I sincerely hope that the Statue is treated with the respect it deserves by passing pedestrians. I also hope that it will be covered by good CCTV.

    Change at the Council

    Now that Geoff Hughes has officially left the building - not least at a very opportune moment by all accounts. Is he to be replaced or has there been a reshuffle of the existing employees and in some cases quite substantial pay rises? I wonder just how long it will be before Geoff Hughes comes back as a consultant
  22. Problem with illegal immigrants is they won't have any documentation on them so the authorities do not know Where they have originated from so cannot send them back.immigration centres are so full that they are let go on bail to Attend a police station once a week then vanish until they are caught again.
  23. What's the point in these raids. Seriously, and I'm not being argumentative. What's the point? There's no point to it and it's all being done without any purposeful strategic aim which is how they really should be thinking when they embark on these pointless raids.You can go to any one of these places, every day, at any time and purchase illicit tobacco. It's that easy! Its quite simply organised crime and the profits are so huge the perpetrators are more than content to tolerate the disruption, which essentially all this is, have one of their number prosecuted and round and round it goes. There's no point to what the authorities are doing. For us, the ratepayers, it's highly expensive and for the authorities, many of which quite enjoy the excitement of investigative work, it's a regular source of highly expensive, time consuming fun that allows them to pretend they're Police Officers and allows them to drift away from what their original job title was, counting bloody paper clips, escaping their desk and taking a walk on the bloody wild side. The door was opened to this area of illicit activity many years ago. We have all helped in the building of this scaffold and unfortunately there's no closing the door, there's no stopping this area of criminality and the best thing 'they' could do is accept things for what they are and start to think differently on how to deal with this issue. Disruption is not the answer. I don't know what the answer is but I do know that spending tens of thousands of pounds on each of these operations is doing nothing to ease the pain of paying your Council Tax and expecting anything in return for it. if you don't know what to do, and they don't, then don't do anything. It's a whole lot cheaper and it's certainly more thoughtful than repeatedly popping to see the Clerk To The Justices, swearing out a warrant, popping on their bloody baseball caps and shouting, 'let's rock and roll' and doing the same pointless thing over and over again.

  25. From HCC News Environmental Health team, Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service and West Mercia Police officers worked in partnership to carry out the planned action at Munchies and Maxii on Commercial Road, Hereford. Illegal cigarettes seized outside Maxii, Hereford Trading Standards seized approximately 8,000 cigarettes from a vehicle outside Maxii. Housing Enforcement entered under warrant, and found persons living in the first floor prohibited accommodation above Munchies, and a further enforcement notice will be issued prohibiting sleeping in the ground floor commercial areas. Enforcement notices are being issued by Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service against Munchies for non compliance with previous advice. One Iraqi Kurd male was arrested an suspicion of being an illegal overstayer since 2011; he was passed on to immigration.

    I just hope that the statue is higher than it looks under the cloth that covers it as it looks to be around 4ft tall.

    Hereford Voice. Use it or lose it

    Part of the problem I feel was when the website was upgraded. I found the new format confusing and has I am sure deterred some past members from posting on it. The original version was simple to use, clear, and easy to immediately to respond to. Change can be good if it benefits us, but not always. The present trend today is to sow discord, confuse, harass, unsettle and divide the population in everything it does to bring about change. Examples of "creative chaos" the words of Nicholas Boles, Tory MP for Grantham and Stamford (18/12/2010) This is already happening in our day to day life regarding family life, education, work, leisure and health. It is not that people count anymore, but that their data is sucked out of their life styles to feed and justify the politicians, bankers, media and global corporations manic ambitions which will entail total control of your mind and actions and enslave you as a moronic consumer. The best thing is to get your face out of your mobile and talk to those around you. Not many people are aware, care or respect one another today and it will only get worse, but then it doesn't affect me or does it? Will I bother to post in the future who knows.
