  1. The first phase of the demolition of the prefab bungalows along Beattie Ave began this morning. These prefabs weren't designed to last, the past 30 years have been a compromise between the costs of sustaining the properties vs the costs to redevelop them. The demolition of this first phase is due to be completed within 3 weeks. Hereford Voice previously reported on plans submitted by Hereford Housing back in March of 2018 for the proposed demolition of 41 existing (prefab bungalows) in Beattie Avenue Hereford and the subsequent construction of 71 bungalows and houses with associated parking, private amenity, access and alterations to highway.
  2. Hereford Housing have submitted plans for the proposed demolition of 41 existing (prefab bungalows) in Beattie Avenue Hereford. Construction of 71 bungalows and houses with associated parking, private amenity, access and alterations to highway. An extract from the Hereford Housing website reads: Application P180694/F Work is scheduled to begin as soon as May.
  3. The Ship Inn site could look like this if the new proposed project is accepted.
  4. It has come to my attention that there has been a considerable amount of anger & frustration at the regeneration of 'The Oval' over on Mybook Facespace or whatever it is? In particular, construction traffic and muddy roads etc. As I have been briefed, the case is, that someone will get run over by the construction traffic, excessive amounts of mud on the roads and health and safety issues amongst others; One jolly fellow even posted the site managers phone number and email , the disbelief! Its not that hard to find!! As I live on said construction site, in their defence, they have two sweepers constantly on the go daily, one is done by the forklift drivers with a big brush, the other is a contracted Wye Valley scarab thingy! The construction traffic will always allow traffic to pass where feasible, and wait if you are approaching. The trouble is really from other road users who have no consideration when parking at the oval and those who are racing around the site trying to short-cut the Belmont road traffic; many times I have had a near miss from oncoming traffic, who are speeding and unaware of the the Highway Code. Then you have the school walk folk moaning about how their kids are going to get knocked over on the road! Hello! - What are they doing on the road in the first place? As I too do the nursery ride, I use the lines, gaining entry from Newman Close, avoiding most of the construction traffic and using the highway code, and not using the Belmont road entry as most of these 'moaners' do. There is also the Ethelstan Crescent entry for those that live further up. As for Health and Safety, quit the fags, do more exercise than just walking the kids to school and keep your kids under control; You may live longer and keep your kids safe in the process! There are frequent site visits from H&S personnel, and I’m damn sure if there were any issues they will be dealt with immediately. Oh and as of Monday 11th the Oval road will be shut. So you'll have to walk further or use Goodrich Grove. The Oval Shops will be open for business as normal. Rant over. If someone would like to share to the Facespace page please do. Rich, Neil, Dave and the Keepmoat team have kept me happy.
  5. These flats have not been up 2 years yet and already they have had to repair the roof, now I see mould appearing in different areas on the external walls, see photographs I took this morning. These flats are starting to look a little shabby already, I wonder how they will look in 5 years time...
  6. Today mini me noticed that the big swing was missing, after being vandalised months ago by teenagers. I did some digging and found out that it has probably been removed for safety purposes after Keepmoat complained to HH about it months ago!! Who has removed it has not become apparent yet, and it was news to Keepmoat themselves. Subsequent information divulged to me was that HH do not want to take ownership of this park! They (HH) rarely litter pick or empty the bins, and it is left to keepmoat to do so, along with Sir Jim. So my question is..... Why do HH not want to take ownership of the park after keepmoat has rebuffed it and completed it to Stringent HH standards and subsequently maintained it for those that are living on the development out of good nature. Also HH have neglected their own grounds and shrubbery since it was put in! Now that it is also encroaching on my property, I have no qualms obtaining a landscaping technician to blitz it and send an invoice to HH for services rendered. I am well within my rights to do so. The shrubbery has now be strangled, overgrown and overwhelmed by weeds. The areas in question have already been completed and handed over to HH. Anyone in council authority who would like to enlighten me?
  7. The work on the new skate park in the fields at the top of Newton Farm has begun. Contractors had already fenced off the old park and have starting dismantling it today. This skate park was built in the 90's and is well used and in much need of replacing. The project is being funded by Hereford Housing as it is their land.
  8. A builders van was vandalised to gain entry and cleaned out. This happened in broad daylight around 11am a few days ago. The van was parked in Radford gardens near the block of new flats. A HH van was also parked next to it but was untouched. I believe the contents was carpentry related. If you are offered cheap tools or hear something, please inform @southsidecops It appears the culprits left in a white transit van that was a little battered, and seen by a few tradesmen around the site.
  9. As part of the Oval Regeneration the developers Keepmoat have released the following information: New development - Radford Gardens named after one of Hereford United's hero's. Situated on the outskirts of Hereford, Radford Gardens is named after Hereford United's Mr Ronnie Radford, who famously scored a memorable goal in the 1971-72 FA Cup to defeat Newcastle United.This exciting new development of 259 new houses, includes 129 homes for private sale.35 two bedroom, 70 three bedroom and 24 four bedroom...

    Housing the homeless

    Dear all comers... I offer to help support families as a free, independent advocate and whilst performing these duties, I have had reason to help a family who were housed at 5 Broxash Drive. Whilst helping this family I discovered that this ex-Council flat, that was given to Herefordshire Housing for free is now being rented to homeless families for £832 p/m or £167 per week....plus a charge of £25 p/w for utilities. If this was not bad enough these tenants have on the spot inspections and can do nothing to make the flat feel homely as they are not allowed to carpet, decorate or hang pictures I have tried to get Herefordshire Housing to come clean about the rent and why it is so expensive but they are refusing to talk and have rebutted my attempts to obtain information via the Environmental Regulations....so I have now made another FOI request to Herefordshire Council at a cost of £300 to the local tax-payer, as they too refuse to give up information freely. I am aware that Herefordshire Housing can legally charge a £60 fee per flat of other temporary accomodation and I believe they are using these properties to create an unlawful revenue stream of £550,000 plus per year...but is it morally right to charge the most vulnerable a £60 a week management fee? Anyone living in these properties will not be able to work as the rent is un-affordable and there is no help other than the basic housing benefit for those families who do want to work and Housing Benefit will only cover the full amount if your out of work and I think this is both morally and criminally wrong...what do you think? I wonder if any of our esteemed Councilors would look into this matter and determine exactly what is going on with HC and HHL which is after all supposed to be a CHARITY whose aim is to help house the most vulnerable in society at a rate that is affordable to all.
  11. I have had many tenants approach me because some of the rendering on the walls of the Kilvert Road flats have become loose because of all the wet weather we have had, therefore it was removed. Tenants concerns is the flats will now become damp. I have had assurance from HHL that if that happened any damp etc would be put right regardless of the flats being part of the regeneration of the Oval.
  12. Herefordshire Housing looking to purchase The Ship Inn, Hereford. The Ship Inn has been closed for a number of years and has suffered from vandalism. They are looking to create around 35 new 1 & 2 bedroom apartments.
