  1. I see that a local councillor is receiving the credit for this established discussion after a cyclists got injured after colliding with a car last month while riding a bike on a footpath in Hereford. This debate has been discussed for the past 4 years on here

  7. I think I would just wait and see if anything develops. These are not really parking tickets they are speculative invoices (Google it) and are really difficult to enforce. Please let us know the outcome. Also welcome to the forum it is good to have you here.

  9. I have watched many of the zoom Council meetings, which have now mostly moved to live streamed meetings. The quality of the latter is extremely poor, terrible camera work and much of the sound hard to make out and cutting out, which largely defeats the object. It is also surprising to note most of the meetings taking place at the Moat House, presumably at some considerable cost, when the Council have poured many millions of pounds in Plough Lane (mostly empty I understand) and the Shire Hall (closed for seemingly endless building work), as well as the Town Hall (for sale, best offer over £1) and of course Maylords Orchards. There are other buildings as well, it's hard to keep track of the property empire that provides such a luxurious lifestyle to certain local builders. Given the Council's ties with the state of the art IT providers Hoople, why can't we have properly presented and audible streams Council meetings from a fixed venue?

  13. Livestreamed documentary Rivercide to unmask UK’s water polluters George Monbiot hosts innovative investigation naming the farms and water firms damaging Britain’s rivers Giant livestock farms and privatised water firms accused of polluting the nation’s waterways are to be named in what is thought to be the world’s first livestreamed investigative documentary. The crowdfunded investigation Rivercide, which will be broadcast online at 7pm on Wednesday, will be hosted by environmental journalist and Guardian columnist George Monbiot. Monbiot will travel along the River Wye, which flows between England and Wales, to collect water samples that will be analysed as the documentary unfolds. “This is a really shocking story of how our rivers are being devastated,” said Monbiot. “We’ll be revealing some serious wrongdoing.” Monbiot decided to focus on the River Wye after a disturbing canoeing trip last summer. He found the Wye, which was once prized for its salmon, had changed beyond all recognition over the course of a decade. “There hadn’t been any rain so it should have been crystal clear but you couldn’t see anything,” he said. “I made the mistake of going swimming. As soon as my nostrils got near the water I nearly gagged because it was so disgusting. When I got out, my whole body felt like it was coated in slimy snot. It was like something out of a 1970s science fiction film.” https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2021/jul/14/livestreamed-documentary-rivercide-to-unmask-uks-water-polluters

  26. Following extensive works to the B4224 road from Fiddler's Green to Fownhope Herefordshire following which was severely damaged by Storm Dennis in early 2020. The B4224 was dealt a double blow by the storm, which caused a 6.5 metre wide landslip and a separate partial collapse of a 100-metre long retaining wall. Balfour Beatty explain that work at the landslip site is now accelerating, and to help explain the stages they need to go through to reach completion, they have put together some information below. 👇 The road is scheduled to reopen this Friday to all traffic.

  27. Useful information here: E-scooter use in Dorset: Police will act on illegal use THE use of specific rental e-scooters became legal in Bournemouth and Poole through a Government-approved trial last month - but people might not be aware of all the laws. Only the e-scooters available for hire from Beryl are permitted on public roads, with privately-owned e-scooters still not permitted. Beryl has launched the scheme with a fleet of 50 e-scooters and there is potential for this to be increased subject to demand once lockdown eases. The hire offering could also spread into Christchurch, the company has said. Here is a breakdown of the trial, who can use the e-scooters and what police have said about them. About the Bournemouth and Poole trial BCP Council and Beryl’s partnership led to the trial being launched on January 25, 2021 and it is due to run until November of this year. It has been fast tracked as a direct response to the Covid-19 pandemic to allow residents another form of socially-distanced travel for essential journeys. Beryl’s e-scooters operate alongside the firm’s bike-share scheme, allowing riders to hire and drop off from Beryl Bays that have been implemented in consultation with BCP Council and other local stakeholders. Similar Department for Transport trials are taking place elsewhere in the UK, including cities such as Liverpool, Milton Keynes, Nottingham and Bristol. Who can use them and where? During the trial period, e-scooter riders must be over 16 years old and they are required to provide a valid UK driving licence to participate. A hire agreement with Beryl provides the user with vehicle insurance. At launch, the Beryl e-scooter service is permitted for use across Bournemouth and Poole. An electric scooter is classified as a motor vehicle and therefore the rider is subject to the same requirements as they would be if driving a car. They can be ridden on all existing public roads in Bournemouth and Poole as well as on the expanding network of signed cycle lanes and cycle/shared-use facilities. They cannot be used on pedestrian pavements. What about private e-scooters? Only the e-scooters hired under the Beryl scheme can be used on public roads and cycle lanes in Bournemouth and Poole. It is still illegal for privately owned e-scooters to be ridden on public land. It is illegal to use privately owned e-scooters on pavements, cycle lanes, beach promenades, bridleways or any other publicly accessible land such as a park or car park. People are only legally permitted to ride non-trial scheme e-scooters on private property. What have police said? Dorset Police said it has been working with BCP Council and provider Beryl to ensure the launch of the trial e-scooter scheme is safe for both scooter users and the public. Police Sergeant Rhys Griffiths said: “All details have been released about how and where Beryl scooters can be used. “We would like to remind the public that all rules still apply for non-scheme e-scooters. “It is illegal to ride them on any public land, they are classified as ‘powered transporters’.” On enforcement action against private e-scooters, a Dorset Police spokesman said: “If officers have occasion to see and stop someone riding a non-scheme scooter on public land then it’s likely the rider will be issued with a warning: they will be told categorically that they are not to use their e-scooter again unless on private property. “Should they be stopped for a second time, after advice has been given, the e-scooter will be seized under police powers and, under the law, cannot be returned.” Can people be prosecuted for drink and drug driving on an e-scooter? Government guidance says that people should not ride an e-scooter while drunk or otherwise intoxicated, warning that they may be prosecuted under drink or drug driving laws as careless and dangerous driving offences also apply to users of e-scooters. Earlier this year a woman was convicted of drink driving while on an e-scooter on the Isle of Wight. What about the current lockdown? A Dorset Police spokesman said: “To keep people safe and reduce the risk of spread of COVID 19, we encourage people to only make journeys where absolutely necessary. “The guidance from Government is clear: stay local to your communities and only travel from your home for short distances if you have a reasonable excuse, such as to travel to work or for education, for essential shopping.”

  28. Update 25Feb2021 I was walking over the Wye bridge and two BBLP employees were looking at the broken railings and temporary barrier fix. I asked when the path railing repairs would be done and the BBLP employee said that their visit was the initial scope and repairs to follow. To be continued

  31. Couple of points = there is a cycle route along the link road. OK is is not segregated but it is there and is well used = the traffic on Blueschool/Newmarket has not really reduced because through traffic is allowed to use it. The road signs do not indicate that the link road should be used for through traffic - why not? Also probably sat navs do not direct to the link road. For example a local company Hereford Quarries have most of their vehicles ignoring the link road! Be proactive and traffic in the centre can be reduced as then can be the width of Blueschool/Newmarket = speak to Network Rail about using part of the station building for passenger facilities for the hub

  41. Following on from the television saga some time ago I spoke to my internet provider Plusnet and after much discussion the very pleasant man said I needed an ethernet cable because I was reaching the speed I was paying for which is top wack. Anyway bought cable and fixed said same and streaming was ok for about 75% of the time until of course last Monday which apart from Amazon was a total no no. After much checking on the internet it was suggested that a USB Powered Compact Signal Booster 4G might do the trick. I bought a SLX from Amazon for just over £13.00 and I am very pleased to say that it seems to do the trick. Hope this bit of info assists somebody else in a similar predicament. Wised up guys and gals might know all about these little devices but I did not so can only assume not everybody does. I was going to say we never had this problem with our black and white tv but we did because on very windy blustery days somebody would have to go out and fiddle around with the aerial and keep coming back in to see if it was better!
