On this date Herefordshire Council's ruling Cabinet will consider the results of the Hereford Transport Plan consultation exercise and reveal their preferred bypass route from the seven that were shortlisted in the consultation. They are expected to approve this preferred route and fund further work to develop it as well as a further statutory consultation on the preferred route.

CPRE Herefordshire opposes a bypass saying it will not solve Hereford's transport problems, is a huge waste of scarce public money that could be put to better use and will do irreparable damage to the county's landscape. At a time when we should be conserving high grade agricultural land and concerned about 'Dark Skies', these roads do exactly the opposite. Our opposition is supported by Campaign for the Protection of Rural England National Office, the Campaign for Better Transport and the Local Green Party. Local groups of volunteers campaigning against the roads include the Hereford Transport Alliance, Hereford Transport Forum, Here for Hereford and WyeRuinit. They would all welcome more people to help so if you are concerned about this plan do get involved!
