Highway Matters

The Parish Council operates a Transport Work Group (TWG) to look after highways issues in the two parishes.

Members
Cllr Mike Wilson – Chairman
Cllr Ron Williams
Cllr Jenny Karayiannis
Cllr Fiona Matthews

The “A” class roads and major work on the side roads in Herefordshire are looked after, on behalf of Herefordshire Council by Balfour Beatty. Any defects, litter, fly tipping or graffiti can be reported direct to “Streetscene” for them by e-mail streets@herefordshire.gov.uk or telephone: 01432 261800 or to one of the above Councillors or the Parish clerk. Minor work, such as litter, ditching and verge trimming are looked after by our own Lengthsman. Any work for him should be notified to Cllr Wilson or the Parish Clerk.

PUBLIC RIGHTS OF WAY

Public Rights of Way (PROW) are maintained by the Parish and any defects or obstructions should be notified to the parish PROW officer, Cllr Lin Hoppé , or to the Parish Clerk. Walkers are reminded that it is trespassing to walk across fields and woodland where there is no PROW even if there is a farmers track or wide field headland. Remember fields are normally in use for a commercial product and tramping them down is destroying the farmer’s income. Dog walkers are also reminded that it is an offence not to clear up after their dogs on any publicly accessible land or to trespass and foul farmer’s fields.

TREES

The Parish Tree Warden is Cllr Lin Hoppé. Any queries on Tree Preservation Orders, work on trees in Conservation Areas or general matters affecting trees in the public realm should be addressed initially to her or the Parish Clerk.
