Balfour Beatty Living Places (BBLP) is pleased to invite you to one of two parish briefings in the Thorn office training room in Hereford (address indicated at the bottom of this email) planned on Tuesday 17th and Thursday 19th March 2015.


There will be a presentation followed by the opportunity to raise questions and queries regarding the Public Realm Annual Plan for 2015/16. The two evenings will provide the same information and we hope one of the dates will be  suitable for you.


The briefing is planned from 7-8.30pm each evening and is open to two people from each parish/ town council, to help ensure we can accommodate someone from each area. There is plenty of car parking space adjacent to the office.


Please would you advise BBLP by email on which evening you wish to attend, and indicate how many attendees you will bring.


Herefordshire Council website is the one-stop-shop for up to date information

Maps for pot holes are available on the Councils website –



We hope the above is of interest.


Kind regards

Shane, Mike & Phil.

Glad to see works to the bushes in Glastonbury Close will finally get sorted.


I am confused why BB are removing Flytipping? Since it's not part of the BB contract and Flytipping is usually undertaken by EHTS?


Yes they were having a good look at these tree's last week, so will be good to have them cut right back, I hope that they don't just give them a quick trim as that will be a waste of time.

Dippy. My Settee ( not really mine , but helps with identification ) is still in location , now joined by 3 black bags . Read the updates from Phil ( Burghill ) with interest - even though the settee has been in the ditch for 21 days there was no mention of it in the report. Nor was anything close to Tillington reported in his report .
