    Overgrown hedges.

    Hello Raymond, we have the same problem south of the ricer too. The people who own the houses have a duty to keep the footpaths clear of their own hedges and tree's, I agree with Denise, speak with you local councillor, name they can discuss this with the owners of the offending overgrowth directly or possible even send them a letter outlining the issues that this is causing pedestrians.

    Overgrown hedges.

    Hello Liveslocal. Thank you for your comment. I appreciate that we must protect wildlife, but the hedges in question are not just this seasons growth but have been neglected for years. Particularly bad all along Hampton Park Road.

    Overgrown hedges.

    Have to agree the wet weather, followed by the heat, has ensured that a lot of hedges have got a bit out of control. However cutting of hedges can only be done at the appropriate time of year for both the type of hedge and in consideration of nesting birds. RSPB recommends hedgecutting is avoided between March and August to protect nesting birds https://www.rspb.org.uk/birds-and-wildlife/advice/gardening-for-wildlife/plants-for-wildlife/garden-hedges/hedge-law/ I would suggest that you keep an eye on the hedge and if its not sorted in August then follow the recommendations of the previous poster.

    I'd hazard a guess fallout from Blue School House. He's got history of pushing building projects through even when the contractual arrangements aren't water tight. This last fiasco could be a cock up too far? Anyone know if he's copping for a nice big bung when he goes? That's the Herefordshire way after all.

    Overgrown hedges.

    I would in the first instance speak to your Ward Councillor or attend the next Parish Council Meeting and voice your opinion. There has been so much growth this year and many people are struggling to get on top of it especially with this heat. But I do agree with you it is a bally nuisance when you have to step into the road because of an overgrown hedge or a thoughtlessly parked car.

    Overgrown hedges.

    As a frequent walker to town, I have noticed that, probably due to a wet spring and a magnificent summer, the hedgerows are more prolific than ever. Thus reducing a 5ft pavement to a little over 2 ft wide in places. This is extremely hazardous when meeting other pedestrians with pushchairs and children. Someone usually has to step into the road. I believe there is a local bye-law against allowing hedges to project beyond your boundary. I am afraid that this does not seem to be enforced.

    Hereford City Centre Map

    Hello. There are quite a few of these city centre maps floating about from various sources but this one seems to be the most accurate, up-to-date and clear, that I have found so far.
  25. Good to hear that so many (at least 41%, those who responded to that particular consultation question) realise that Cllr Price's claims won't work for Hereford. Many more folk are beginning to realise that because it is only to open up more land for housing, this road will just make Hereford a horrible urban car-dependent sprawl with congestion much worse than it is now. What a waste of money. I really can't see all these planned new houses selling. And we all know how reluctant developers are to provide the "affordable" homes we really need.
  26. Plans have been submitted to convert the upper floors of Steamer Trading cookshop in Commercial Street into 10 no. flats. The shop on ground floor will remain. https://www.herefordshire.gov.uk/info/200142/planning_services/planning_application_search/details?id=182521&search-term=registered in the last 7 days& search-service=recent&search-source=items&search-item=registered in the last 7 days
  27. A report has been published recommending the selection of a preferred route for the Hereford Bypass. Following Cabinet approval of a short list in January a public consultation was carried out in February and March to assess the public view of the Hereford Transport Package, which included active travel measures and proposed bypass route corridors. In addition, considerable technical work has been undertaken to assess environmental, engineering, economic and traffic factors that affect the different routes. Based on the technical work and the public consultation feedback, more detailed reports have been produced which recommend a preferred route. Based on this assessment the recommendation has been made to opt for the Red Route. If cabinet approve this recommendation the red route will be taken forward for further scheme development and consultation later this year. This next phase of consultation will then enable stakeholders to comment on the detail of a bypass scheme based on the Red Route corridor and complementary active travel measures. The results of this consultation would then inform a future cabinet decision to confirm the bypass scheme and associated active travel measures. These reports are now available on the Herefordshire Council website. Cllr Philip Price, cabinet member infrastructure, said: Herefordshire Council’s Cabinet is due to consider reports and recommendations regarding the Hereford Transport Package which will include considering the preferred route for the bypass at a meeting on Friday 27 July 2018 at 10am. In advance of this, the council’s General Scrutiny Committee has called in the decision for pre-decision scrutiny; and will consider the issue on Wednesday 18 July 2018 at 10am. Both these meetings will be held in public at the Shire Hall in Hereford, and anyone is able to attend to observe the proceedings. Members of the public will be able to ask questions in advance of these meetings and the audio of the meetings will also be broadcast live. Details of how to submit a question and how to attend or listen to the meetings online are available on the council’s website The report for General Scrutiny Committee and all accompanying information is now available to view on the council website. The Cabinet papers, including a proposed response to any recommendations made by General Scrutiny Committee will be published on or before 19 July.
  28. Good plans, I think could get the green light
