    In the words of Maggie Thatcher, ‘ Rejoice at this news!’

    Hereford 2020 Vision of Commercial Rd

    Wow! Trees!

    The New University - Herefordshire

    I've said it before and I'll say it again . . . this is the single most significant development to hit Hereford in the last 50 years!

    The Matabeau Hereford

    At the risk of antagonising the trolls on here who refuse to accept that the Old Market has had a negative effect on the historic city centre and who believe 'Hereford has never been busier', the owner of Outback Records in Church Street this week announced their closure after 50 years. In the Hereford Times article she was quoted as saying the demise of Outback was directly attributable to a 30% drop in footfall since the OM opened! Anecdotal but a story being repeated throughout the city.

    The Matabeau Hereford

    I was wrong about one thing. I had thought Hereford Voice was an open forum where everyone's opinion was respected - not a mouth-piece for abusive trolls like Ragwrt!

    The Matabeau Hereford

    Oh really? Then why is The Maylord and Commercial St festooned with empty shops?

    The Matabeau Hereford

    The Matabeau is another victim of The Cattle Market development. When the City Fathers chose to accept a miserly £1m for Hereford's most valuable piece of real estate, they gave their blessing to a shift in the centre of gravity of Hereford's retail trade. The argument for this seismic shift was that the new development would generate extra trade and this would cascade down to the rest of the city. It was never going to happen. As a consequence, businesses now on the fringe of the central area struggle.

    Twinning Hereford with Jaworzno in Poland

    Are you kidding?! We (the majority) voted LEAVE. Nothing personal against any of our Polish chums but we want to regain control of immigration. Encouraging inter-city links (and transfers) is surely subjugated by the wider view?
  9. Ten years is still a very short period if serious commercial investment is to be considered and HFC are already in Year 2.

    Griffiths of Abergavenny contractor for City Link Road

    In what way will the HCLR 'transform Hereford's city centre'? As you say, it is simply a piece of infrastructure releasing development land for 800 new houses - all of which will have two cars to add to the congestion this road will fail to relieve!

    Hereford's Bypass

    I might be missing something but surely the Bypass is the key to releasing development land and creating a more viable city? More buildings produce more rates which, in turn, feed the council's coffers. Then, we might have the money to meet the County's social care needs; restore the Library; and, maybe, get rid of that bomb-site in High Town!

    Good luck to Hereford (United) F.C

    Important to realise that there is absolutely no connection between Hereford FC and the old Hereford United except they share the same supporters. A great achievement and display of public support but HFC is an entirely new construct.

    Clean for The Queen

    As She doesn't live among us, how the hell will she know about CFTQ?

    EU referendum - In or Out?

    At the moment 500 million people have the right to move to Britain. Soon, another 75 million Muslims (Turkey) will join them! I'm a LEAVE!
