New Local Transport Plan for Herefordshire- Herefordshire Council would like to understand your priorities for improving transport in the county 

Herefordshire Council is in the early stages of developing a new Local Transport Plan (LTP) which will cover the period 2024-2041. The LTP is a statutory document which sets out what, where and how the Council intends to invest in transport in Herefordshire. It seeks to tackle existing and future transport challenges. The new LTP will cover the whole of Herefordshire, recognising the different characteristics of Hereford, the five market towns and rural communities. It will comprise of two key elements:

  1. An overarching strategy setting out how investment in transport will help to achieve the economic, environmental, health and social ambitions of the council;
  2. An implementation plan setting out a  programme of schemes and projects which will include a wide range of types of transport interventions

Herefordshire Council want to understand where you need to travel and how you would prefer to get there. They are also keen to get their views on our emerging LTP themes and supporting actions. The feedback received will help to shape the detail of the plan, before they hold a wider public consultation on the proposals later in the year.  

How to get involved 

Herefordshire Council are encouraging everyone who would like to get involved to undertake a short online survey to share their views, which should take less than 10 minutes to complete.

To access the survey, please click on the link below.

Please share this with anyone within your constituency who may be interested in getting involved. 

For more information on the LTP and this engagement period, please visit . The engagement period starts on 25th March and closes on 21st May 2024.

Draft Herefordshire Local Plan (Regulation 18) 2021 – 2041 Consultation

Herefordshire Council have also launched a consultation on the draft Herefordshire Local Plan (Regulation 18) 2021 – 2041. The local plan sets out the planning framework for the county for the period to 2041 and covers issues such as housing provision, the economy, retail and town centres, infrastructure provision and the environment. It will also set out policies by which planning applications will be determined, in addition to allocation land for new housing and commercial development and associated infrastructure.

The deadline to respond to the consultation is 20th May. You are invited to read the consultation documents carefully and submit a response via the Commonplace website. To help illustrate the policies and to put them into context, an interactive map has been published alongside the draft plan.

To accompany the plan, HC are publishing four background papers on some of the strategic policy areas to provide further information on how the policies have been developed.

As part of the consultation, local residents are being asked to provide feedback on the current design of the built environment in Hereford and the market towns and how this can be improved through a Herefordshire-wide design code.  More information on the National model design code and how to create design code can be found here.

In addition to the information provided online, members of Herefordshire Council’s strategic planning team will be available to speak to in person at several locations across the county throughout late March and most of April.

All consultation documents and further information of dates and locations for roadshow events are available on the Herefordshire Local Plan webpage.

If you have any questions concerning the consultation, please contact us at
