Chairman’s Report August 2018

Hopefully, all of you will have received a parish newsletter in July. If you haven’t then please look on www.pyonsgroup.co.uk or contact your local parish councillor. Any feedback or comments you have on the newsletter will be gratefully received. Please let us know if there anything you’d like to read more about, or that we may have missed.

Public Open Space Design: The Parish Council agreed the design of the Public Open Space adjacent to the Playing Fields at the July meeting. The design is available to download from www.pyonsgroup.co.uk. All the planting and preparation required will be undertaken by the developers who will also maintain the area for 12 months before it is adopted formally by the parish council on behalf of the community.

Planning: There were four planning applications considered at the last meeting, two of which were in Ledgemoor. Comments have been submitted to the planning authority, Herefordshire Council, which will make the decision on whether to grant planning permission.

Traffic Regulation Order, Bush Bank: The proposed introduction of a new 30 mph speed limit at Bush Bank from the Bush Inn along the Kings Pyon road will be reviewed by the locality steward at a meeting with our Ward Councillor Mark Cooper. You can see a plan of the proposal on the website.

The next meeting will be at 7.30pm on Tuesday 4 September at the Ledgemoor Club Room. All members of the public are welcome, and there is an opportunity during the meeting to raise local matters and concerns you may have.

Harry Ray, Chairman,
Pyons Group Parish Council.

Traffic Regulation Order, Bush Bank

The proposed introduction of a new 30 mph speed limit at Bush Bank from the Bush Inn along the Kings Pyon road is supported by Ward Councillor Mark Cooper and Balfour Beatty’s locality steward.  A local petition has also called for a speed limit.

A map showing the location and extent of the proposed speed limit can be found here – Map – TRO Request at Bush Bank.  The speed limit is put in place by a Traffic Regulation Order, which is the responsibility of the highway authority, Herefordshire Council.
