On Tuesday 4 April, staff from the Chamber and Visit Herefordshire attended the Hereford Area Plan and Hereford Transport Package consultation breakfast at the Courtyard to learn more about the plans for Hereford.

The event focussed on the regeneration of Hereford, including the Hereford Bypass, Leisure & Tourism, Retail, Housing and Transport.

The Hereford Area Plan (HAP) will set out the detailed proposals to ensure the full delivery of the city specific policies in the Core Strategy. The preparation of the HAP provides an opportunity to shape the planning framework that will deliver and manage projects in Hereford and ensure they meet the needs and aspirations of local communities, while also protecting and enhancing the built and natural environment.

The Hereford Transport Package (HTP) is a key project included in the Local Transport Plan. The package will help deliver transport conditions to support a healthy and prosperous city by:

  • Enabling new jobs and homes
  • Supporting the economy of the city centre
  • Promoting healthy lifestyles
  • Reducing pollution
Herefordshire Council would like to hear your views on the ambitious plans for Hereford. The consultation is taking place at Hereford Library until Friday 19 May and businesses are encouraged to complete the online consultation questionnaire.
