Re: The Key at Herford North

I got a reply from my renewed query today: Thank you for contacting us on 13th April 2016 in regards to the expansion of the Key smartcard travel area. On 3rd March, Abellio Greater Anglia railway launched their own smartcard product, and an reciprocal agreement was reached to make their smartcard a...

Re: 24 Hour Gym Planned For Town Centre

Actually seems to me to be a reasonable idea for using that space, with potential to generate additional foot-fall in the town centre, probably better than what was proposed.

Re: 24 Hour Gym Planned For Town Centre

I know it was a few weeks ago now, but I don't recall that being presented as one of the options in the consultation for the 'Urban Design Strategy'. :D
