Re: The Key at Herford North

Did they confirm if you keep the paper season ticket or not? I can see it getting very difficult if you don't.

Re: Bengeo Gravel Extraction

I agree that the letter that's been circulated does contain some possibly doubtful parts (especially the house price comment). The consultation the proposers have carried out is fairly pitiful though - it's basically just the very closest houses. No wonder they only had 80 people at the public consu...

Re: New trains on Hertford North route announced

Good to see they've got wifi (though wonder how much it'll cost). I find the data signal pretty bad considering most of the journey is on fairly high lines through London. Also given their current plan seems to be to add a minute on to the timetabled journey every year, presumably by the time these ...

Re: Parking on the pavements

Presumably people would only do that if their front gardens were big enough (most of which in Bengeo aren't if they've not already been done). I don't mind people paving over their front gardens (though obviously you need to comply with planning rules to do that) because that's your own space anyway...

Re: Parking on the pavements

I think the long grass is probably a fair description - this is the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Transport (Mr Robert Goodwill) in the debate on Friday: "As I explained at the outset, we share my hon. Friend’s concern for the safety and free movement of pedestrians. Improving acce...

Re: Parking on the pavements

I think this is the relevant legislation re obstruction (Highways Act 1980): 137.— Penalty for wilful obstruction. (1) If a person, without lawful authority or excuse, in any way wilfully obstructs the free passage along a highway he is guilty of an offence and liable to a fine not exceeding [level ...

Parking on the pavements

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-34988833 Interesting article in BBC News about parking on the pavements. Personally I think it's pretty dangerous to block the whole of the pavement as is the case with lots of the parking in most of lower Bengeo. A few times at night recently I've seen people hav...

Re: Want to get my house valued, recommend me some agents, please,

We used Lanes, they were quite helpful (though possibly a bit overoptimistic with their initial valuations sometimes).

Zoopla does online estimations, though they can be a bit out if your house was last sold a long time ago.

Re: Port Hill pedestrian crossing

Ah yes, very helpful, thanks - 26 October till 20 November. So they'll be starting three days after the gas works finish according to that site. Nothing like consecutive roadworks to wind people up...
