Re: Disappearing cycle lanes on North Road

I know they were narrow and got bumpier by the month as HCC did not repair them but isn't having no bike lanes at all on the road to/ from Hertford North even worse? Frankly, no. Indicative cycle lanes are completely pointless and offer no additional protection to cyclists whatsoever. They're just ...

Re: Maidenhead Street

Taking account of the HUDS statement "As part of these works, new gates will be installed at either end of Maidenhead Street." I can't help but wonder where these gates are? Overall, I personally feel Bull Plain is much improved, though still a work in progress, but am confused as to where blue bad...

Re: Vehicle crime

I hope everyone is reporting these.

The local crime stats show vehicle crime running at 20-30 reports a month.

Lamentable choice. The big 2 or an Independent at local level. Big 2, Quislings or Greens at County.
You're a couple of years late for the County elections (or early depending on the viewpoint).

This year's elections are for the town and district councils.

Re: Is anything happening?

We've got local elections in under a week's time. And EU elections in under 4 weeks. Is anything happening in Hertford? I understand the local Tories are running a stall at today's market. I'm amazed anyone would stand as a Conservative POarty candidate given the current state of affairs. That said...

Re: Bengeo Gravel Extraction

isn't the development being planned in between welwyn and hertford green belt? And that one is huge. I'm not sure that green belt counts for much any more. Sure there'll be protests, but at the end of the day the houses are needed somewhere. I'm not sure which "huge" development between Welwyn and ...
