Planning restrictions placed on Hereford public house

The owners, occupier and brewery of the Broadleys pub in Hereford have had restrictions placed on what they can do with the building. Herefordshire Council has issued a direction which removes the permitted development rights that had been associated with the property. The notice, formally known as an “article four direction” means that the owners must now seek a planning permission if they wish to change the use of the building.

Amey contract

In the decade to August 2013 a wide range of ‘streetscene’ (highways and public spaces), building maintenance, catering and other ancillary services were delivered through a contract latterly held by Amey Wye Valley Ltd. Over that period the contract value exceeded £200m. With all its contracts, Herefordshire Council expects to pay the contracted fair rate for the services provided in return we expect those services to be performed to the contracted specification. Such concerns are notified to the contractor at the point they become known to the council. During the course of any contract areas of disagreement may arise and when this occurs the council seeks to find an acceptable way forward.
