Hereford's Commercial Street Refurbishment Paused For Xmas

Recommended Posts

Herefordshire Council’s ongoing refurbishment of Commercial Street has been paused for the festive season.

The council and our partners, Balfour Beatty Living Places, have been working to improve Commercial Street over the last six months, and the project is on track to be completed in spring 2019. The works will be put on hold over December to ensure there is no disruption to seasonal shoppers, and to allow Hereford’s local residents, businesses and visitors to celebrate Christmas.

The teams will return in the New Year to complete delivery of a new vibrant shopping area for residents and visitors.

Cllr Barry Durkin, cabinet member transport and regulatory services, said:

Quote

“The refurbishment of Commercial Street has been progressing well and is on course to be completed in May 2019. This planned pause in the works will enable Christmas shoppers to be able to move about safely whilst enjoying their festive shopping.

“The refurbishment will tie in with an upgrade to the whole High Town area, and enhance the city as an attractive and easily accessible destination for visitors and shoppers.

“On behalf of Herefordshire Council and Balfour Beatty Living Places we would like to wish everybody a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.”

Ice cream! 

That will melt before you even get it under a tree! I'm on about 'gifts'. Not stuff you may do up to a Month before the day! Unless you are putting ice cream in a freezer as a present. Which would be a very odd gift!

You asked "What festive gifts are Forum Members' buying in Commercial Street this year?"

My daughter want to go to the new Ice Cream Parlour, so I will purchase a gift voucher for her to use as a stocking filler
