Have your say on Hereford city's future

By Ross Gazette reporter in Planning

Herefordshire Council is urging residents to take part in one of the biggest consultations on Hereford city’s future development delivered to date.

The Hereford Consultation has been running since April 4th and will finish on May 22nd, and covers topics like the Hereford Bypass, new university, tourism and leisure and housing.

Councillor Philip Price, cabinet member infrastructure said: “I have been encouraged by the number of people attending the exhibitions and taking part in the online questionnaire; we now have over 1000 responses and this number is growing by the day.

But, we do need to get the views of as many people as possible and I urge anyone who hasn’t taken part, or who has had a survey but hasn’t filled it in yet to take a few minutes out of their day to let us know what they think.

The Council is committed to taking forward the Hereford Transport Package including the western bypass and want to know people’s views. We want to know about any issues or constraints associated with the western bypass corridor before we consult on a number of bypass routes later on this year.

The subjects covered in the consultation affect everyone living, working and visiting Hereford City and I would like to see as many people’s opinions considered when we make plans for the future.”

The consultation exhibition can be viewed at Hereford Library during normal opening hours and is staffed on a Wednesday afternoon from 2-4pm up until Monday, May 22nd.

The exhibition panels, information and a link to the consultation questionnaire can be found at www.herefordshire.gov.uk/herefordconsultation
