  5. From Council News today 20 August 2014: I am sure that this will be welcomed by many people. However not repaired as quick as this road following earthquake in Japan!
  6. PUBLIC REALM SERVICES PARTNERSHIP NEWSLETTER - PARISHES Introduction from Cllr Paul Rone & BBLP’s Andy Williams The challenge of a reduced budget means that the Council and BBLP have prioritised all matters of safety. Therefore Herefordshire’s road network will see a huge investment of nearly £35m, for much needed repairs, including potholes, resurfacing and drainage. Road repairs, traffic control, flood risk, street lighting and winter maintenance all have been categorised as having the greatest demand on the budget, and Herefordshire Council has already warned that because of budget cuts, grass cutting has to be reduced from seven cuts a year to three in the county’s parks and public areas, while in some rural areas the grass will be left untouched. However it has been confirmed that any safety cuts required for grass verges or trees affecting motorists’ visibility is considered a priority task. Safety cuts take place around road junctions where visibility for motorists and pedestrians is paramount. These areas of land are known as visibility splays and form part of public highways, providing a safe view of oncoming traffic for all road users, whether motorists, cyclists or pedestrians. It is essential that we keep these areas tidy to provide sight lines for everyone using our roads. For more information please see attached Q&A. Grass cutting schedules, a grass cutting guide, are available on: www.herefordshire.gov.uk/grass-cutting Parish Newsletter June 2014.pdf
  7. Hereford Times: 6:00am Sunday 20th April 2014 in News By James Forrest I think the money is available - it's just spent elsewhere.
  8. 30 jobs to be shed to improve services! ~ I can't link to the actual story on the HT as it's been removed. It was only up for a short time ...
  9. Anyone got any pictures of this hole in Caple Avenue?
  10. Here's something from today's Scrutiny meeting on the budget. The £20 million pounds of NEW funds that had been obtained for Balfour Beatty to up the ante on these roads and potholes is NOW coming from a mass sale of as many Council owned assets as possible in the short term. Out of £100 million which we (you, us!) own the Council will sell off £20 million a year, every year at least for the next three years. At a meeting held by BB and with the Chief Financial of the Council for all our parishes to attend, we were distinctly told this was NEW money. Can I have support from those present at that meeting please, because they're denying saying it. Or did I mishear?
  11. Driving back into Hereford along Haywood Lane I noticed that one of the new duck signs has disappeared... The picture on the right I took yesterday. Can we have this replaced please?
