Leominster Area Neighbourhood Plan
The Neighbourhood Plan has been amended, following an initial examination by Herefordshire Council, and was resubmitted under Regulation 16 on 20th September 2017.
Once Herefordshire Council has reviewed the amended submission it will undergo the Regulation 16 consultation. This will be followed by external examination and a local referendum. There will be a formal six week consultation period as part of Regulation 16 requirements.. Once the Plan has been uploaded onto the Herefordshire Council website a link will be provided.
The Town Council is aware of the concerns raised by local residents regarding the poor state of the roads in Leominster and throughout the County. It has discussed the issue with Herefordshire Council and Balfour Beatty and will continue to try to secure additional investment.
Further proposals for the future public realm investment in the town centre are currently being drawn up and should be available soon. Funding will be an issue but the Town Council has offered to support any funding bids and carry out consultations locally.
