The issue is covering a range of items peculiar to the city and is the result of a dedicated number of people within the society. I think they do a very job. Wonder if any councillors and planners read it?

Just come back and several snippets of information. Cllr Powell tells me that what I have read in the Hereford Times is untrue about the involvement of the council in helping to set up the university. The Council only gave the University the go ahead two days ago and the assets referred to are not for sale (as of yet - my words).

 

Meanwhile the litter situation is not going to improve as we are expected to pick it all up ourselves says Cllr Nicholls. This was after telling us how important tourism is. And Mike Wilmott mentioned Guy Taylor in a conversation about neighbourhood planning. However it was nice to see many of our councillors out tonight. I am sure it thrilled the twitchers.

Hereford Civic Society event

 

The Farrell Review - One Year On

Thursday 16th April - 7.30 pm start (refreshments from 7pm). The Kindle Centre by Asda, Belmont, Hereford HR2 7JE

 

The  line-up of expertise to take us through this discussion includes Charles Campion from John Thompson & Partners, who is overseeing the Collaborative Planning Process for the local Three Elms housing development and Paul  Fong of the Gloucester Design Panel, who will inspire us about the workings of his Group.

 

We will also have an update from Max Farrell, hopefully in person, with other interesting contributors in the pipeline. Check HCS website for latest on this.  

 

We look forward to seeing you on the night, and do get in touch beforehand if you have a particular interest in this subject. HCS Members free admission. Visitors £3 each, refunded if you join HCS on the night.

 


This Review is a snapshot in time. It is a broad and independent review of our collective efforts to plan and design our future built environment which in turn shapes the way we live our lives. 

 


 

World-class British architect, Sir Terry Farrell, has proposed that every town and city should have an Urban Room – a space in which local people can learn about the built environment.

 

It would be a good idea if Hereford established a similar space - maybe where the burnt out buildings in High Town are.
