  1. For the love of God!! http://councillors.herefordshire.gov.uk/documents/s50094444/Development and implementation of a fundraising strategy to secure the Herefordshire Hoard for the p.pdf A just giving page would perhaps be cheaper?
  2. Another £30,000.00 gone http://councillors.herefordshire.gov.uk/documents/s50094430/Record of officer decision state of the community and voluntary sector.docx.pdf
  3. And more £46,000.00 http://councillors.herefordshire.gov.uk/documents/s50093789/FINAL Car Club RoOD.docx.pdf £115,000.00 http://councillors.herefordshire.gov.uk/documents/s50093791/Media RoOD.docx.pdf £50,000.00 http://councillors.herefordshire.gov.uk/documents/s50093793/PR RoOD.docx.pdf
  4. Boom!! - £15,000.00 - chicken feed!! http://councillors.herefordshire.gov.uk/documents/s50093740/Record of Officer Decision - Town Fund Projects List Annex A Submission.pdf
  5. The thing about it is that it is not surprising. You have to wonder how much of the Towns Fund £22 million (the success of the bid which was trumpeted) will go to consultants to develop the business case for each project. I wonder if a shovel will ever go in the ground?
  6. Another £80,000.00 gone http://councillors.herefordshire.gov.uk/documents/s50093735/Award of professional services contract to undertake outline design and consultation for the Cathedr.pdf And more on its way http://councillors.herefordshire.gov.uk/documents/s50093729/Variation of AP for Critical Friend Reviews v5.docx.pdf
  7. 1. It appears that the Job Centre is moving to Maylords Orchard. What then is to happen to Blueschool House and how does the Council reconcile the expenditure on that building, which if memory serves was close to £2 million, and the loss of rental income from the Job Centre? 2. Recently Cllr Harrington in discussing the transport hub at the railway station expressed a dislike for any scheme to have bus or similar shelters placed in front of an historic building. This being the case when do the Council intend to remove the bus shelters which obscure and spoil the view of Shire Hall, and which also interfere with commemorative events at the War Memorial?
  8. If these figures are accurate (and I am not doubting them), then for the freehold the building can only be worth £1. An owner who neglects a Listed building to this extent cannot expect to sell it for anything.
  9. Nothing is beyond this bunch of charlatans The Council say the building needs at least £2.5 million on it. Even if they gave it away to the City Council that would immediately burden them with these costs - which ultimately we as taxpayers would have to cover. So while the County Council may reduce their burden we still have to pay to cover their mismanagement and lack of proper maintenance. Given these costs no wonder no one else has expressed an interest. What is its best economic use - flats?, restaurant,?, shops?, No it is as Municipal Offices with meeting rooms.
  10. An interesting sculpture but the visitor number? I was past it quite often and there was always a number of visitors but it was never really crowded It was on display for 28 days so at total of 102,000 that is some 3600 a day I am not decrying the event just querying the visitor numbers And you can always hand in unwanted knives at the police station
  11. Just more asset stripping but I imagine it will be sold to the City Council. Whenever it is sold of course the Council will need to rent those parts which it continues to use such as the Registration Service and Parking.
  12. Update - This is what the Council say Jacobs Court has a long convoluted history. It has been approx. 10 years since the structure was deemed dangerous and scaffold erected, to protect the structure and glazing, which has remained in situ ever since. Due to their historically being no resident management company the tower and communal areas fell to the crown. Due to concerns over the deterioration of the scaffold and the health and safety requirements monthly scaffold inspections were commissioned in 2015 at a cost of £400 + vat pcm ((£400x 12) 6years = £28k.) There is a charge on the property in relation to the dangerous structure and the initial cost of the scaffold erection of (£32 890 + vat) which we hope to use as a mechanism to recoup the ongoing expenditure. We are now currently in talks with the newly reformed residents management company to try and resolve this, which we hope will finally end the ongoing costs. So even if the Council can end the monthly charge the chances of getting the money back are almost nil. Poor work by the developer and yet again we foot the bills - currently over £60K and increasing every month
  13. Regrettably there will be no formal Armed Forces Day events in Herefordshire on Saturday 26 June 2021 However, as is usual for the Monday of the week before Armed Forces Day, Flag Raising events have been held. The formal County event was held this morning at the Cathedral and a Flag was raised at Wye Valley Trust Hospital. Here is a photo of the flag raising at the hospital. Flags were also raised in the market towns. In Herefordshire we continue to be proud of and to honour all those who serve in our military, those who have previously served and all their families. Not only do our military protect us they have also been invaluable during these unprecedented times. More pictures can be seen on https://www.facebook.com/HerefordshireAFD
  14. On top of whatever all this ends up costing I see we are now to spend nearly £360,000 on repairing the damage to the surrounding road network as a result of the closure. I'm not suggesting that this work should not be done just pointing out how the folly of the Council on this mess spreads. Of course this will be done by BBLP. Positive news I guess though
  15. Could not agree more. Cycling particularly in the city is difficult enough without having to look out for potholes, decayed surfaces and sunken drains. But as far as the Council and BBLP are concerned fixing a quiet rural road is easy and is another tick in the box
