County Council relocation

Interesting to hear HCC propose moving 1,000 staff to St Albans and, despite it being a news item on this site yesterday, there is still no public announcement on the new site, cost, or justification. I think it was less that 25yrs ago that it saw fit to close and sell sites and consolidate in Hertf...

Re: Bircherley Green

Following your 8 Mar news item I and many I know are getting a little fed up with trying to walk and shop in Hertford. We have the Maidenhead St/Bull Plain issue which appears to be the slowest build ever and Bircherley Green having ground to a halt. How traders feel I do not know but must commend t...

Re: Bircherley Green

Presume this article from the Mercury https://bit.ly/2NJYAbh means we have a stand-off between Planning and the developer with the latter citing a 'fragile market'? Does he mean profit margin? If they can't go forward because it was such a badly put together project why not look for new short-term t...

Re: Ware Road

Afraid I must disagree with those comments. I believe HCC are ignoring Ware Road safety and the congestion/pollution of Gascoyne Way (to which it is a significant contributor) as it looks to use those traffic volume etc stats to justify the by-pass and the building of more houses. I know that come t...

Re: A414 Corridor Consultation

IMO HCC, and its districts, have for far too long been prepared to build more than their fair share of homes WITHOUT demanding that before approving builds Government provides funding for infrastructure. Here is how HCC sees infrastructure planning saying it requires £6bn for the next 12-15 years bu...

Re: A414 Corridor Consultation

OK, these are my views. If you don’t solve today’s problems how can you gauge what tomorrow’s will be as we have been chasing this tail since the 1950’s. Those ‘in the know’ tell us we will all be using EVs, lowering pollution (ignoring the raw metal extraction process), and possibly self-driving ve...

Re: Elections this (nearly) year - time for a new thread?

(Tongue in cheek) Although past history shows there is little, but usually no, debate at these events I’m happy to suggest some items for possible discussion: 1. What does HCC propose to do about pollution and congestion on the A414 over the NEXT FIVE YEARS not 2030? 2. Why does HCCs ‘have your say’...

Re: A414 Corridor Consultation

Not sure why some seem to be supporting HCC on this one. Is this not a problem that can be laid firmly at their door as they have done nothing since 1994 to address congestion, pollution, public tpt availability or providing road infrastructure to address planning applications, in and around Hertfor...

Re: A414 Corridor Consultation

Having made a quick read through I have many comments on this but was more interested in trying to tie down the proposed route and found this in the Habitat Regulations Assessment: "HRA implications.The closest part of the proposed bypass route options pass approximately 380m north of Wormey-Hoddesd...
