Re: Community Charge 2018/19

50% of it is for adult social care; once you get beyond that, and children's services; there's no (relatively) that much spent on bins, libraries, roads etc

Re: Hertford Bypass

Whenever I read about the Bypass subject, posts & topics always seem to centre around relieving traffic on Gascoyne Way & the M25. I live in Bullocks Lane - this is the B158 - a "B" road, a little road leading to Essendon & beyond. Motorists already use THIS road as a "bypass" to cut off the A414 !...

Re: Community Charge 2018/19

Also they added another £10m to their massive reserves. Even with my googling skills I'm finding it hard to find out how much they actually have, but one document I saw suggested £150m. Given the mess certain Councils are in (Northants for example), I'm pleased to see a reserve. Not sure it's enoug...

Re: Proposed signs "celebrating Richard Hale school" at Hetford East

I'm telling you all, it's a post ironic joke; a wind-up #ArtTrolls fulling outrage, and reading this with their hoppy bears and handsome beards laughing at the reactions

Surely it is.

Re: Looks like Bypass is getting closer

Agreed, but my concern is that it is rather like an election manifesto 'Elect me and I'll give you x' but there is no guarantee, especially if we see a change in Government. Also between 2017-22 Hertford will see another 565 homes built (1,850 by 2033) and the EHDC DP (Modifications 2018) is now sa...

re Drama Queen comment...

Sadly this is the problem; the F&B market is on it's knees at the moment; chains shutting not expanding, and Indies not able to afford the rent, this development is 3 years too late (otherwise it would have been a Cote, Wags, GBK etc).

Re: Bircherley Green

In the Mercury.. A Beefeater is proposed. Jesus wept. Over-priced, brown food. Yes I am being snobby. If it's in The Mercury it must be true :roll: Very good. Anyway, it's a wider issue. The scheme was conceived a while back when mid-market food and beverage was doing well, and operators were expan...
