This plan is Floodplain Foolish!
The Hereford Transport Package funding must be sourced from central Government. It is based on plans to create of 6,000 new jobs and building 6,500 new houses in Hereford. The access roads and more will be funded by the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government.
The proposed housing and bypass are reliant on the creation of jobs.
Herefordshire Council promised 2,000 jobs at Rotherwas but generated only 300, most of which already existed and were just relocated from other parts of County.
Its plans for development at Three Elms are the fatal flaw of the Core Strategy. The bypass is a white elephant. It will increase traffic congestion.
