Growing employment

The difficult economic circumstances of recent years have presented huge difficulties but Herefordshire is finally beginning to feel a real positive impact.

Old Market Hereford

The Conservatives are committed to improving Hereford and attracting more tourism and more trade into the city and county.

Hereford Buttermarket

To support the Council in refurbishing the cultural and vibrant Buttermarket, Hereford Futures commissioned Royal Institute of British Architects to run an Open Ideas competition, from which Austin-Smith: Lord emerged as winners.

Better roads and pavements

In 2013, the Conservative-led Council last year appointed Balfour Beatty Living Places as the highways and related services provider for the county with a commitment to act on those potholes reported to them.

Affordable housing

We recognise that there is a need for additional housing to help keep prices affordable in the county and we have budgeted to ensure we can deliver significant numbers of new homes at reasonable prices.

Low Council Tax

The responses to the Council’s budget consultation showed that it is vital that a balance is struck between keeping costs low for working people and providing services locally which really matter.
