Herefordshire Council’s planning committee has approved the Southern Link Road (SLR) planning application today, Monday 6 June 2016.
“Today’s decision is a significant move forward as it is the first step towards a long-awaited bypass. Hereford can now move towards a more financially sustainable future, with the provision of more homes and jobs.We still have far to go, but this decision is the vital first step forward and allows us to continue to develop in line with the county’s emerging economic master plan. The Enterprise Zone at Rotherwas can now develop with the right infrastructure in place to support it. Although, to fully build out the Enterprise zone there is a requirement to have in place the bypass as planned; today’s decision goes some way towards that aim. This is good news for business and for Hereford as a whole.”
