Re: Bircherley Green Open space

So are they going to pave over or turf the new town square at Bircherley Green. I cant ever see a Premier Inn being built there with all the delays. Would be nice to have it grassed over with a few seats and trees. Maybe we could even have some toilets and a bus waiting shelter if we are lucky. Wre...

Re: Bircherley Green

As for the last application being delayed until after the May elections, my understanding of LGA guidance is that you may “Continue to discharge normal council business - including determining planning applications, even if they are controversial” during purdah. I think the issue here is that there...

Sele Neighbourhood Plan

The town council are holding a consultation on the final draft of the Sele Neighbourhood Plan.

I don't think I've seen any publicity around this - no press release from the town council and the information isn't exactly easy to find on their website.

Re: New trains on Hertford North route announced

Two new trains were due to be brought into service on Monday (11 March) but this was pulled on Friday. We've had "Autumn 2018", "early 2019", "soon" when Mark Prisk met GN representatives a couple of weeks ago. All 25 of the new units are now in the UK, sat in sidings ready to be used. The old trai...

Re: Hertfordshire Mercury

Circulation now down to an average 7301. Sales have dropped 60% in 5 years, no doubt due to the fact that most of the news isn't local any more.

Re: Bircherley Green

Presume this article from the Mercury https://bit.ly/2NJYAbh means we have a stand-off between Planning and the developer with the latter citing a 'fragile market'? Does he mean profit margin? If they can't go forward because it was such a badly put together project why not look for new short-term ...

Re: Enterprise Car Rental Closing

Why is the link between the Caxton Hill industrial estate and the Foxholes industrial estate closed off? It always has been. Both estates are privately owned and I think there were probably issues with the link being used as a shortcut between Ware Road and the A414 - avoiding the Mill Road lights ...

Re: A414 Corridor Consultation

Yes, we need to reduce traffic on the A414 around Hertford. But do we need a new bypass in 10 or more years time to solve today's travel problems? No! HCC says it would cost "up to £500 million". There are plenty of things that could be done to reduce present traffic levels in the next few years. I...
