  1. Noticed this weekend (just gone) that there's a large pothole, inbound, on the Barrs Court side of the metal bridge. Went over yesterday (Monday) and it's got 50% bigger and deeper in a couple of days ... So be careful if you are using that bit of road! If you hit it full on there's a potential to do some damage!
  2. I have just been alerted to this Facebook Topic, it names Conservative Cllr. David Greenhow as the suspect in this bizarre act of animal cruelty, which now appears to possibly be a criminal investigation, see what you think:
  3. I have just been listening to the live stream from Full Council held yesterday at the Shire Hall in particular, the reactions from various Councillors about the alternative budget proposed by IOC. Live Stream can be found here At around 228 of the live stream Cllr Paul Rone speaks, during his brief response I notice that he says that if turning off the traffic lights is such a good revolutionary idea, then why has nobody else done it? Well actually Paul, quoting you using your own words from yesterdays meeting, "Seek Before You Speak" Turning off traffic lights has been successf
  4. This is a letter that I have sent to to our councillor today in the hope that I receive a response. I am sure that is also an issue in other areas, but when you are not even trying to join the que and waiting excessively, something needs to be done. As for the road surface saga - well its just a joke considering it’s a “new†development! I’ve driven on smoother farm tracks. I am writing to you in the hope that you may be able to help resolve some issues we are having on Woodward Avenue (formally Broxash Drive) Every weekday morning we have problems with traffic using the street as a r
  5. Herefordshire Council News 13 October 2014 Full steam ahead or will it hit the buffers?
  6. Hi The Parish Council will be holding a Community Action Day in Belmont on Saturday 15th October 2016 from 10.30 am. The aim is to get as many volunteers as possible to try and help with jobs around the parish, including Jubilee Field and public paths. There was a similar event earlier in the year and I ended up spending a considerable amount of time helping to clear a large area of brook with another volunteer!! I am sure the Parish Council will be putting up posters with more detail in the near future, but I wanted to give people advance warning, to save the date :) I think it i
  7. Apparently Graham Powell has resigned from the Cabinet, confirmed by Tony Johnson in letter today. He will still apparently remain as Cllr for his ward, Golden Valley South. David Harlow (Birch Ward) is replacing him. Remember where you heard it first!
  8. Just wondering as there appears to be a 'push' in that direction with publicity for the Polish night at 'The Victory' and also publicity for the new 'Polish' eatery on St. Owen Street. ..... ?
  9. Bearing in mind the welcome opposition councillors' planned coup, regarding the cabinet system next week do we get what we deserve? How are these councillors going to carry us through to the election polls next May? As witnessed on these pages not many councillors engage with us on the many local issues affecting the city and which concern us. Directness and honesty seem to be secondary considerations, often only telling us how bad things are after they have gone t"ts up. Consultations are undertaken and ignored if the results do not fit the planned agenda. How much has and is this costing us?
  10. Notice of disposal of Public Open Space land at Newton Farm Playing Fields, Hereford The County of Herefordshire District Council intends to grant a Lease of the playing fields, car park and changing rooms at Newton Farm, Hereford. Plan here: Anyone know who may have an interest in this scheme and how long the lease will be?
  11. Thursday 21st August 2014 in News Hereford Times by Bill Tanner About time - Bill Tanner is the Hereford Times.
  12. Hereford Times News: Friday 27th June 2014 by Bill Tanner So that's where the grass cutting savings went. Amazing that when the staff at the lower levels are "transformed" they get to lose their jobs and forgo pay rises, whereas those bringers of change at the top shovel more of our money into their pockets and put PFI payments into their friends companies offshore. No wonder they want UK Column off the air.
  13. While I understand and appreciate that there is an election coming up and each candidate has a budget with which they can use for their own campaigns, surely this is private property (I believe was purchased by Mr Cheung some years ago) so Cllr. Edwards has no right to advertise himself here without permission? Which I know for sure he will not have because the council have been trying to locate the Chinese owner for sometime.
  14. Please read and give us feedback guys. (Colin will be happy because we have committed to asking the Highways Agency to trial traffic light removal where appropriate, i.e./ Belmont/Asda and Steels/Tesco). http://www.itsourcounty.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/IOC-Manifesto.pdf
  15. I saw today that yellow signs have gone up at Penn Grove Road indicating that traffic regulation is proposed between Moreland Ave and Admirals Close. That's where the commuters/students/hospital people park for free just beyond where the existing yellow lines stop. The details of the restrictions are not yet on the relevant Council page (link here) but they are sure to appear soon and will probably stop people parking on that section of road full stop. I'll be quite pleased if this happens as the current free for all makes driving along there inconvenient and sometimes dangerous. This foll
  16. Councillor Mark Hubbard has this morning resigned from Herefordshire Council's Planning Committee after claiming the planning process has been brought into disrepute. Cllr Mark Hubbard was left angered after a planning application submitted by a committee member was approved by the chairman during a meeting last month despite it being recommended for refusal. Full HT Article
  17. If Im right and its true that Councillor Mark Hubbard is considering not standing at the next local elections then I'd say to him, 'think again'. I've watched from a distance the way in which this chap carries out his duties and there's no doubt that Mr Hubbard is a gifted and dedicated public servant and, given the state we are in, we can well do without losing people of his calibre. During the time I've been contributing on this site and the Hereford Times you can't fail to appreciate the hard work and commitment some Councillors display. At one time, because I knew buggar all, I had no time
  18. Report here about Herefordshire Council considering the proposals for a joint property vehicle (JPV) with Worcestershire and the alternative options for commissioning of property services. Part of the government's instruction for regionalism of services and management of key services. Strangely the council appear to be wary of it, although there is mention of putting in place a partnership agreement with a private sector partner while retaining an intelligent client/strategic asset management capability within the council. Is that a call for the return of a Hereford Futures type or
  19. Interesting article in The Guardian today confirming how bad things will get - sounds familiar in Herefordshire. The local authorities are just conduits for passing taxes, monies and grants to private companies, partnerships and unelected bodies such as The Marches Local Enterprise Partnership. I also read that yesterday that Scotland Yard commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe is driving an idea to reduce more than 30 forces in England and Wales, to create nine super-forces, based on the regional boundaries. I imagine these will be riot poice. The police are showing interest in those
  20. 1st August 2014 in News Hereford Times It appears the Council appear unhappy that the local media isn't putting the right spin on their activities. Well done the Times and Bill Tanner. Lets hope there is more serious delving into the way this Cabinet system works and arrives at its decisions. Long live the free press!
  21. Space for Cycling recognises that we need networks. It is calling for high standards of cycle infrastructure design and the invesment needed to ensure it. A Dutch-style approach to cycling. Anyone cycling anywhere. Imagine. It asks people who want to see this to lobby their local councillors. CTC and Cyclenation have created a web-based campaign that enables people to do this and to see the results on a national map. If you do this now you will be contacting your Herefordshire councillors in the run up to a vote on the Local Transport Plan (26th September). A perfect opport
  22. Annual Review Letter to Mr Alistair Neil, Chief Executive, Herefordshire Council From the Local Government Ombudsman with its annual summary of statistics on the complaints made to the Local Government Ombudsman (LGO) about your authority for the year ended 31 March 2014. How many of these issues were reported by the Hereford Times, especially where complaints were upheld?
  23. From Hereford Times today: Is the nomination date correct? Two days notice. Haven't seen this advertised in the press. ELECTORAL SERVICES NOTICE OF CASUAL VACANCY in the office of UNITARY COUNCILLOR for Ledbury Ward also another notice here for ELECTORAL SERVICES NOTICE OF CASUAL VACANCY in the office of UNITARY COUNCILLOR for Leominster South Ward
  24. Neighbourhood plans are all the vogue at the moment. Plenty of rural parishes jumping in and having a say about what happens in their patch. Even Belmont parish Council have had a meeting about this: Future Development Of Belmont Rural. Any news on what happened at the meeting Colin? I thought that this would be a good idea, but as Simon Browne points out in the topic "When is a Plan not a Plan", they appear to carry little weight in helping local communities protect their environment. So why do them and would the city be any better off if it had one? Would it prevent the fire station
