WEOBLEY NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN

The NDP for the Weobley received a positive referendum result following the referendum held on Thursday 12th September 2019. The result was as follows:

Yes – 241 votes / 85.2%

No – 42 votes / 14.8%

28.3% turnout

This means that the NDP will have full weight from 13th September 2019. A report is being prepared for the Cabinet Member and it is anticipated that the plan will be adopted mid–October. At this point the plan will form part of the statutory development plan for Herefordshire.

Information and copies of the Plan documents are available to view on the NDP website: http://weobleyndp.weebly.com  

POST OFFICE

VACANCY

Due to a resignation following the recent election Weobley Parish Council has a vacancy for a Councillor. If an election is not called the vacancy will be filled by co-option. Please contact the Parish Clerk for further information.

WEOBLEY SKATE PARK

A formal tender has been drawn up for the provision of a new skate park for Weobley, which can be downloaded from the website. The documents can be found here.

TRAFFIC AND PARKING ISSUES

The Parish Council is aware that the village is becoming increasingly congested with traffic, reaching gridlock on some occasions, with street parking, including instances of illegal or inconsiderate parking, adding to the problem.

The village roads were not designed for the level of traffic or the size of vehicles we are now experiencing, nor for the increase in car ownership and the need for somewhere to park. Development traffic has only added to the problem and the increase in village residences will ultimately mean more vehicles using the roads.

The Council is trying to address this issue but there is, of course, no quick and easy solution. A working group has been tasked to identify the areas with the worst issues and investigate any options for alleviating or improving the situation.
