    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.

  3. Herefordshire CPRE Admin <admin@cpreherefordshire.org.uk> 2:19 PM (14 minutes ago) to CPRE Dear HCPRE Member Please see below for an update on the Hereford Bypass – which is being pushed through at a perturbing rate. Please share this as widely as you can and consider taking action as outlined below, in What can you do now? Hereford Bypass update 10th July 2018 Herefordshire Council have announced when decisions will be taken on their preferred route for the proposed western bypass for Hereford at 7pm today (Tuesday 10th July 2018). A report about the Hereford Transport Package (HTP) will be published - presumably on Herefordshire Council's website. This will include the Council's preferred route for the bypass from the seven routes shortlisted earlier this year. The General Scrutiny Committee (GSC) will then consider this report when it meets at 10am on Wednesday 18th July in the Shire Hall Hereford. The Council's Cabinet will make decisions on Friday 27th July - its meeting also starts at 10am at the Shire Hall. We expect a lengthy report - with many appendices - since it includes the preferred bypass route, the results of the consultation earlier this year and also proposals for active travel measures: cycling etc. The GSC have decided to examine the HTP proposals before the Cabinet meeting rather than afterwards. This means that once the Cabinet agrees any recommendations on the 27th they are final and there are no delays. Cabinet's decisions cannot be 'called in' and scrutinised again, whatever they are. There will be a further public consultation later in 2018. What can you do now? · Write to your County Councillor and MP objecting to the speed at which this key decision is being taken - see below. (Even if you are not in his constituency you can write to Jesse Norman at the Department for Transport - he is Roads Minister) · Tell your friends how damaging the bypass will be – please pass this on to as many contacts as you can, via email & social media! - it is unaffordable,will not improve transport in Hereford but will do lots of environmental damage. · Attend the meetings of Scrutiny and Cabinet - they are open to the Public. · Ask questions at either the Scrutiny and / or Cabinet meeting - this is where the undue haste/speed of decision comes in. The reports will be long and need time to digest. - There is a process and timetable for the public to follow when asking questions which have to be approved by Herefordshire Council's Members Services Section, three working days in advance of the meeting. - So for Scrutiny on Wednesday 18th July you will need to get your question in by 5pm Thursday 12th July - less than 48 hours after you have begun to read the paperwork. Surely this does not help public participation in the democratic process? - For Cabinet you have until Monday 23 July 5pm to submit your question. · Gather outside the Shire Hall before either / both meetings to protest. · Do you think there is someone with influence / a public profile who might be persuaded to support the CPRE Stop The Bypass campaign? · Can you think of any groups / organisations to which you belong - other than CPRE - who might be prepared to listen to a speaker explain why the bypass is a bad idea - speakers can be provided! Thank you for your time. With kind regards Barbara Barbara Bromhead-Wragg HCPRE Administrator

    I will put this on here and now another 150 houses for Kingstone have been approved. No doubt some people will remember this as the 150 houses originally passed as Passivhaus developers a company named Archihaus who failed to get funding for their "exemplary" development. The pa was then adopted by Lagan Homes (non Passivhaus) and passed as bog standard brick boxes. Personally I am gutted but will have to live with it. https://myaccount.herefordshire.gov.uk/documents?id=9c99431c-7ae5-11e8-b454-0050569f00ae As an aside Architype/Archihaus are building quite a few passivhaus Council houses around the country but not within Herefordshire. However I do have questions to ask and maybe somebody on here can answer them or go some way to answering them. At what stage will the county reach saturation point for new houses? Where are people who are buying all these new houses currently living? Where are all these people working who can afford these houses - the new ones are not cheap? As an aside there is an app in Clehonger for 80 houses which has gone to Appeal so I expect that will also be passed. Also an approved pa in Peterchurch for I think 80 houses has also been sold on.

    Herefordshire Council Contracts

    They come in as the cheapest so they get the contract. The fact that they add on extras after is quite another matter
  15. Cambo don't take it personally but I believe people generally are afraid very afraid to voice an opinion any longer
