Last week Herefordshire Council Planning Committee unanimously rejected the attempt by David Wilson Homes to build 50 houses on a greenfield site between Bartestree and Lugwardine. This proved another success for the Parish Action Group (Facebook - HandsOffOurVillage), set up to oppose the flood of such opportunistic applications until the Core Strategy and local Neighbourhood Plan are in place.

WITH reference to Steve Kerry's letter (Readers' Times, February 27) regarding the High Town paving repairs, I would like to suggest something which I believe could be done at the same time and would make a real difference to improve the look of High Town at a relatively low cost. The Old House has recently been repainted and looks wonderful, so why not light it up at night?

LAST year I went to Nepal, and Herefordshire roads are now in a similar condition. In Blakemere and Moccas due to the heavy rainfall, - we were cut off at times through January and February and I completely understand that these things happen, and that we are lucky that we were not as affected as badly as other areas.

Letter from Barry Cobbett questions installation of brass inlaid stone paving in Hereford's High Town
12:12pm Thursday 6th March 2014
IT was with some degree of sadness when I read that Hereford City Council intends replacing the areas of brass inlaid stone paving with some uninteresting plain slabs, thus removing for good an important reference to the history of our city. The original idea was a brilliant concept and a simple but exciting addition to the hard landscaping of High Town. Unfortunately, the work was badly designed and installed without proper consideration being given to the task.

THE amount of rubbish being deposited on some of our roads is simply appalling. In my own part of Herefordshire there are drink cans, food wrappers, bottles and other items either dropped at the side of the road (or in my garden!) or thrown from passing cars. They act as a disfigurement to an otherwise very attractive county.

I HAVE read the ongoing press reports and letters about the Greenway Footpath and Cycle Path. Because of confused and conflicting information, I missed the opening and the local activities around the Greenway Bridge crossing the river. I would have been glad to take part in celebrating what, I believe, is a great asset. I took my daughter and grandson to Bartonsham on New Year's Day to see for myself. We really enjoyed the view and walking over the bridge, though I am not sure about car parking.
Readers' Times January 23, 2014: hospital care was excellent, more concern over roads, a new supermarket would have been good for Leominster, hot air over energy (EfW) plan for Hartlebury, and more.

Having read Councillor Philip Price's comments on the front of the Hereford Times, December 19, and consulted with a number of independent retailers, I felt compelled to write to him urgently with a suggestion that I feel would help alleviate the imminent traffic problems and also greatly help the independents in the historic heart of the City.
Cyclists should be warned about Greenway Bridge, wind turbine worries, praise for our MP and city's development is flawed

I HAVE sat for the last two weeks wondering when our local supermarket fuel station in Leominster, was going to drop it's price of what is most people's biggest weekly bill after the mortgage. Petrol/Diesel.

11:07am Friday 15th November 2013
AFTER reading the Hereford Times of October 24, I could not believe the total arrogance of Frank Hooley in his vilification of the people of Kingstone who voted against the council to try to stop the building of 150 new homes in our village.

YOUR leading article “Council’s snub for local firms” (Hereford Times, October 17) featured a complaint by Jonathan Cook that the job of selling off a combination of junk from the attic and “crown jewels” should have been given to local companies by Herefordshire Council.

Letter from Barbara Hall of Croft Road, Clehonger, Hereford says Queen Victoria got it right with the loos – in 1851
8:00am Monday 4th November 2013
THE continuing row about the closure of public loos reminds me that it was no less a personage than Queen Victoria herself who insisted that sufficient public conveniences must be provided to meet the needs of the people attending the Great Exhibition of 1851.

IF the financial situation facing local government demands that our fire services must be cut back – and I am not at all convinced that taxpayers will agree with that proposal – it would be nice to see the Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Authority lead the way by pruning some, if not all of its 25 members, who annually claim in excess of £50,000 in various expenses.
