Restoration, revival and re-invigoration of the heart of the City of Hereford

Hereford City, Cathedral and River Wye are famous their beauty, historical and wildlife value. Most buildings are listed, scheduled or conserved.
At the time of the Taylor Map of 1757 Hereford had a population of about 3,500, almost all of whom still lived within the medieval walls.
In the post-War years Hereford became hollowed by demolition car-parks and the decline of retail on the high street.
Today Hereford has a population of about 60,000, less than 1,000 of whom live within the walls.
The idea is to reclaim the car-dominated space for pedestrians and cyclists and the wasteful level car parks for new houses and diverse small businesses. These to be designed to the highest standards of energy efficiency, historical resonance and affordability.
Let us turn Hereford into a place of destination, refreshment, recreation, creativity and inhabitation; an historic city repurposed for the 21st century where the visible past gives meaning to the present and inspires its future.

  1. I wholeheartedly agree with this suggestion. Hereford has so much to offer in the way of natural history, environment and heritage. We need to stop building roads and adding traffic and boring national stores and focus on being different, creative, innovative
