Welcome to the Leominster Town Council website.
Move to 11 Corn Square
The Town Council Offices and Leominster Tourist Information Centre (TIC) will be relocating to our new premises in 11 Corn Square during the week beginning Monday 24th April. There is likely to be some disruption to services during this period, however we will endeavour to have staff available to deal with urgent enquiries for as much of the week as possible. If you are due to visit the Town Council Offices or TIC during the relocation, then it is advisable to phone in advance to ensure that staff will be available to assist you. Updates are available by phone on 01568 611734 (Council Office) or 07772 657446 (Town Clerk). We look forward to welcoming you to our new premises in the very near future!

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.
