Neighbourhood Plan – Regulation 16

Our plan has now reached an important stage in its progression towards adoption. Following the recent consultation, the Parish Council submitted the plan to Herefordshire Council on 16th September 2019. The plan contains a number of minor amendments to reflect the comments made by the community and other external consultees during the consultation that we conducted during the summer. Herefordshire Council is required to carry out its own consultation on the plan which will run from 16th September until 31st October 2019.

The plan and associated documentation can be viewed on the Herefordshire Council website in the Neighbourhood Areas and Plans Directory section of their website ( ).

Comments can be sent by email to or by post to Neighbourhood Planning, PO Box 230, Plough Lane, Hereford, HR4 0LE or by using the online comment page on the Herefordshire Council website.

Parish Council Summer Litter Pick

Parish Council Summer Litter Pick!

A plucky band of councillors and the parish clerk embarked on a litter pick through the village this week. With our litter picking equipment and signage courtesy of Balfour Beatty, risk assessment, first aid kit and under the watchful eye of Massie Piggott with his tractor and link box we picked our way from Grendon Firs to North Lodge and the top of Wacton Lane to Chaftonhop and Harp Lane as far as The Beeches.

We collected a variety of rubbish which included various car parts strewn along the A44. There were plenty of cartons, cans and food wrappers which had been discarded no doubt after having been purchased in Bromyard. Sadly, it seems Bredenbury is just the right distance away to finish the take-away coffee and lob out the rubbish!

However, we were pleasantly surprised that there wasn’t a huge amount of litter, but it was certainly time well spent. We will be siting ‘No Dog Fouling’ notices to also try and combat some of the mess on the pavements.

Special thanks to Councillors Geoff Hancock, John Hulse, Hugh Farey, Pete Jones and Massie Piggott and Clerk Vicky Hancock for giving up their time to improve our surroundings.
