VOTERS will have the chance to quiz prospective councillors next month about their proposals for Herefordshire.

Hereford Civic Society is holdings a political hustings at the Hereford University Centre ahead of the upcoming local county council elections on May 2.

The event will have representatives from the Conservative, Green, It’s Our County, Labour and Liberal Democrat parties.

The evening will be chaired by John Bothamley and will focus on Hereford’s built environment.

Each candidate will be able to show five slides in a five-minute presentation.

Mr Bothamley said: “It will be a unique opportunity to see politicians held to time, respectfully questioned and, hopefully, showing off some deliverable visions for Hereford.

“During this year, Place magazine has been highlighting concerns the Hereford Civic Society has about piecemeal development, and the apparent omission of an overall master plan.

“The Society’s aims include promoting high standards of design as well as preserving the best of our historic buildings.

“The candidates will be explaining their approach to highway design, their vision for the city and just where they would like to see new developments.”

The event starts at 7pm on April 11 at Herefordshire & Ludlow College, Folly Lane, Hereford.

Those wanting to attend should email or call 0800 032 1986 by April 4.
