    Asda Petrol Station

    Robert Preece
    By Robert Preece,



    Just had an email from planning regarding a new application for a petrol station at Asda, the plan is on the Council site. I will no longer be a Councillor when this comes to planning but if my wife gets elected to the City Council she will do a walk about in the Ward to hear what your opinions are.

    Herefordshire locality stewards celebrate first year

    Colin James
    By Colin James,

    Herefordshire locality stewards are celebrating a year of significant success as they mark their first year anniversary. 

    The ground-breaking team, launched by Balfour Beatty Living Places (BBLP) for Herefordshire Council, has taken huge strides to improve local roads and public open spaces.
    The 13 locality stewards, who cover every ward in the county, have raised more than 32,000 jobs to fix problems from potholes to blocked gullies and dangerous trees to litter picking.
    Cllr Paul Rone, Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport, said: “The locality steward team has made a really positive impact since they started working across Herefordshire last year. The stewards are very knowledgeable about their localities and have developed a good understanding of local needs and priorities. They provide a valuable link between the service delivered by BBLP, Councillors, Parish Councils and the community.”
    In the past 12 months the team has inspected more than 12,000 miles of local roads to inform the Council’s two-year, £20 million road maintenance programme. Now in its final year, BBLP is on track to fix more than 67,000 potholes and complete resurfacing more than 120 miles of roads.

    Road signs ignored

    By ragwert,

    So I'm working in East Street which should be pretty quiet as to the amount of vehicles using it because
    it's a road you cannot go down as it has no motor vehicles signs at its entrance in Broad Street.It is just access only meaning you can only go down East Street if you need access to properties in East Street.
    But not only is it ignored by the general public it is also ignored by Taxis,Balfour Beatty vans & police cars.
    To say the residents down there are angry is an understatement and from what I have been told all their concerns fall on
    deaf ears.

    Voting Up/Down Feature

    By paulinehodges,

    I joined this forum because I am interested in what is going on in Herefordshire. I have been somewhat dismayed at the personal attacks that go on, so much so that it has put me off contributing. I am now horrified to see my name in print as being a possible perpetrator of some heinous crime of " down voting posts" I don't even know what this means let alone how to do it. I would hope the administrator would clamp down on this sort of behaviour. It does nothing to improve the art of good debate!

    Dear All


    The Local Plan Inspector’s report was received this morning. A copy is attached for your information.


    Its receipt will form the basis of the reports to Cabinet and Council on 15/16 October 2015.


    The report will be made available on the website as soon as possible. Once it is available the Programme Officer will be sending an e mail to all those parties who have asked to be kept advised of progress on the Plan. That e-mail will direct the persons concerned to the website and will also inform them of other opportunities to view the report.

    Defibrillator now at Hereford's Asda

    Frank Smith
    By Frank Smith,

    I was reading this article in the Hereford Times informing us that a defibrillator has been installed at Asda Hereford and that 14 members of staff have been trained to use it. Excellent news, I think all supermarkets and large stores should have them as standard.

    Golden Galleon Open Until 3am

    Colin James
    By Colin James,

    It has taken over 3 long years but today we have our first result!




    At long last and after campaigning by Hereford Voice we can now all enjoy hot food until 3am at weekends! And 4.30am on Bank Holiday weekends (except Bank Holiday Monday) I spoke with Tony from the Golden Galleon sometime ago informing him that late night food applications are being relaxed and now was a good time to apply for extended hours, he did just that..



    I am pleased to confirm that this afternoon Herefordshire Council's Regulatory Sub Committee met and considered an application from the Golden Galleon in Commercial Road to serve hot food late at night.

    The case was heard and debated at length. After careful consideration the committee agreed to vary their premises licence to permit the sale of hot food as late as 03:00 and 04:30 on bank holidays.


    I hope this keeps everyone in the loop and allays any fears that Hereford is resisting such a change. The police will no doubt keep an eye on the situation in the city centre and the Council will of course have to respond to any applications to review this licence should the late night sale lead to public nuisance or crime & disorder. However, let's hope it doesn't come to that and that everyone can enjoy their long awaited hot chips..!

    Oval Toilets Planning Appeal Granted

    Colin James
    By Colin James,

    A government inspector has overruled Herefordshire Council and granted the appeal. A three-storey building can now be developed on the site of the former public toilets at The Oval.


    I think this is good news, I would rather a nice new building instead of looking at those terrible toilets!

    Crimewatch Filming In Hereford

    Colin James
    By Colin James,



    The BBC's Crimewatch outside broadcast team were filming in Hereford today. They filmed along the GWW and various locations throughout SouthWye. I assume this is to broadcast an appeal into the murder of Christian Bagley, 30, who was found with stab wounds to his arm and back at 22:50 BST on 21 June and later died in hospital.
