Re: The Key at Herford North

Just to resurrect this, I had my Hertford Stations to London terminals season ticket loaded onto the Key and it would never open the barriers at Liverpool Street. It was always accepted by staff but sometimes involved a longish discussion and occasionally them finding a hand scanner and checking it....

Re: Waitrose at Van Hages

That was my thought exactly, though some papers did mention two new stores still going ahead (though I think those were ones already under development). When you read the press release you'd think the Hertford store would be perfect for their new preferred Waitrose store concept of bakeries/wine bar...

Town centre regeneration

Others may have more up to date or detailed info, but there was a piece in the Mercury about the town centre regeneration. http://www.hertfordshiremercury.co.uk/1million-regeneration-project-for-hertford-moves-a-step-closer/story-29693213-detail/story.html Not sure how far £1m goes but I guess it's ...

Re: Drone

As far as I'm aware, there are no privacy laws in the UK. That's not correct - there is privacy law in the UK, and lots of recent case law on it. A particularly useful quote is from Mr Justice Eady in CTB v NGN and Thomas: "The modern law of privacy is not concerned solely with information or ...

Re: Train cancelled - train crew shortage

I agree they have been pretty poor in the last few weeks - often at least one train in the morning around the time I'm leaving is cancelled and usually a delay as well. The other morning we just sat at Alexandra Palace for twenty minutes with a power failure (presumably on the clapped out train as o...

Re: Warren Park Road

In fairness they've also been resurfacing lots of other roads in Bengeo so I guess it wasn't just aimed at where the rich people live! I know in London they've been trying to coordinate roadworks: https://tfl.gov.uk/info-for/media/press-releases/2016/january/teamwork-on-roadworks-in-2015-saves-over-...

Re: SG13 or SG14

If they're 11 and 13 then they'd be an in year entry anyway presumably, so they'd only get in when there was a space. The admissions rules in Hertford are generally (though some schools are different): SEN/children in care; siblings (in distance order); non-siblings for whom it is the nearest school...

London suburban metro consultation

http://content.tfl.gov.uk/dft-tfl-rail-prospectus.pdf Only noticed this (now closed) consultation because of a story in the Guardian today about commuting into London - it's about TFL taking over various commuter lines into London when the franchises expire. It's not exactly wildly ambitious for th...

Re: Police & Crime Commissioner Election 2016

You can find all the candidates' statements on here (I think it's the first time I've had to actively look up any candidate info rather than it just falling through the door...)
