Council sets public event to shape Ross's future

Posted: 09/02/2010 09:41:16

Due to popular demand, Herefordshire Council has organised a second public event to give Ross-on-Wye residents the chance to take part in the important Shaping Our Place consultation, which will set the blueprint for the future development of the market town.

Following its road show in Ross on 2 February, when planning officers spoke to hundreds of local people, the council has arranged an evening public meeting, starting at 7pm on Tuesday 2 March at the Larruperz Community Centre in Ross.

Residents will be able to see displays of a series of possible options for building communities and enterprises over the next 15 years. The aim is to create better-paid jobs, more affordable homes and stronger public services.

Around 1000 new homes could be provided in Ross over the next 15 years and two options are suggested, in the northeast and/or south of the town, next to the A40. The new model farm business park at Ross is also set to attract high quality knowledge-based and creative industries and high-tech businesses, bringing exciting new employment prospects.

“The Shaping Our Place consultation is attracting responses from thousands of people across the county”, said Councillor John Jarvis, cabinet member for the environment and strategic housing.

“We hope people in Ross will make their views known. The market town is important to Herefordshire as the only significant settlement with direct links to the motorway network, and presents a key gateway for inward investment and tourism.

“Ross is bristling with enterprise and good ideas. We need to work together to ensure that we offer the best possible future for our bright young people, so that they do not move away for better prospects elsewhere, and for our older people too, so that we have the public services and resources in place to meet their needs”.

The Shaping Our Place 2026 consultation documents can be picked up at any time from the info centre in Ross, or downloaded from the council’s website: www.herefordshire.gov.uk

Several villages in the area could see development designed to increase affordable housing and sustain essential services, including schools, and new shops, along with rural transport improvements. The options are also to promote extended employment land and more enterprise centres to encourage the creation of new jobs, particularly creative industries and environmental technologies to boost the economic viability of villages.

Added Councillor Jarvis. “It really is be up to local people to tell us what they think and help grow the right future for the county and the market towns”.

The council is holding several exhibitions and road shows across the county in the coming weeks, as well as workshops in schools and colleges. People’s views will be analysed and proposed policies developed and presented back to cabinet later in 2010 and publicised, before being submitted to the Secretary of State, who will arrange for a public examination and inspector’s report with final adoption anticipated in 2011.

It provides a chance for everyone to help finalise the Local Development Framework, which will be the blueprint for planning and developing Herefordshire for the future.

In parallel, the council is also running a consultation on the Local Transport Plan, which will be adopted by April 2011 and will drive the county’s transport strategy for the next 15 years. The review of the transport strategy is intended to align transport policy with the wider needs of the county and will help coordinate support for growth. The Local Transport Plan consultation enables local people to let the council know what their priorities for transport are for the county, whether it is greater public transport investment, more cycle routes, better highway maintenance or further road safety improvements.
