Plans for St Owen Street Improvements on Display

Consultation begins on July 19 2017

Plans for improvements to St Owen Street will be on display in the Assembly Hall at the Town Hall on July 19 2017 from midday until 7pm.

The proposals include a contraflow system for cyclists and improvements to parking and pedestrian provision as part of the wider improvements of Hereford City Centre.

Councillor Paul Rone, cabinet member for roads said:

“The refurbishment of the city centre is ongoing and has improved the look and feel of High Street, achieving a consistent aesthetic with Old Market. To further enhance accessibility and safety in the city we are unveiling plans to improve the environment for pedestrians and cyclists in St Owen Street.

Improving the city for shoppers, visitors and those living and working in Hereford is a priority for the council which ties in with wider regeneration plans across the whole city.”

The consultation will run until Wednesday 30 August and the exhibition can be accessed online at www.herefordshire.gov.uk/StOwenStConsultation where you can find a link to a short questionnaire about the scheme.
