Herefordshire Council have announced when decisions will be taken on their preferred route for the proposed western bypass for Hereford.
At 19.00 on Tuesday 10th July a report about the Hereford Transport Package (HTP) will be published - presumably on Herefordshire Council's website. This will include the Council's preferred route for the bypass from the seven routes shortlisted earlier this year.
The General Scrutiny Committee (GSC) will then consider this report when it meets at 10.00 am on Wednesday 18th July in the Shire Hall Hereford
The Council's Cabinet will make decisions on Friday 27th July - its meeting also starts at 10.00 am at Shire Hall.
We expect a lengthy report - with many appendices - since it includes the preferred bypass route, the results of the consultation earlier this year and also proposals for active travel measures - cycling etc.
The GSC have decided to examine the HTP proposals before the Cabinet meeting rather than afterwards, This means that once the Cabinet agrees any recommendations on the 27th they are final and there are no delays. Cabinet's decisions cannot be 'called in' and scrutinised again what ever they are.
There will be a further public consultation later in 2018.
