Leominster Area Neighbourhood Plan
The Neighbourhood Plan is currently being amended, following an initial examination by Herefordshire Council. A number of issues were raised and the Town Council has worked to address them.
Once Herefordshire Council has agreed to the general content of the Plan and no further edits are required, it will go forward to the next stage of the process – known as Regulation 16. 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, however the Town Council is keen to carry out an additional consultation with residents prior to submission. Please look out for further details in future issues of the Leominster News and on the Council’s website.
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 in the next six weeks. Funding will be an issue but the Town Council has offered to support any funding bids and carry out consultations locally.
11 Corn Square
Despite some delays experienced with the installation of a new lift, it is hoped that the new TIC and Town Council Offices will finally move into 11 Corn Square in the middle of April.
