The event, which is open to the general public, will be held on Wednesday 4 July at College Hall, Cathedral Close in Hereford from 2pm to 6pm. It is an opportunity for members of the public to view the proposals first hand and provide their comments before the design is finalised.
Councillor Graham Powell, cabinet member for education and infrastructure, said: “The proposals for the Broad Street area of Hereford form part of Herefordshire Council’s overall approach to supporting the local economy and addressing transport problems in the city. The refurbishment is funded by the Department for Transport and is a great opportunity to invest in creating a better city centre environment for the benefit of businesses, residents, shoppers and visitors without placing additional financial costs on the council.”
“We intend to develop a new Local Transport Plan for the county, which will include measures designed to cut congestion and encourage people to walk, cycle and use public transport. We will also be reviewing our parking strategy to ensure it takes into account the major developments in Hereford including the Broad Street area and the Old Market development.”
He concluded: “This is an exciting time in the development of Hereford and we need to ensure we deliver improvements to infrastructure to support growth across the county.”
