Leominster concern over loss of parking

There is real concern among traders and residents over Herefordshire Council’s proposed sell-off of part of Broad Street Car Park. Local councillors Felicity Norman and Jenny Bartlett have raised residents’ and traders’ questions with the council over loss of parking space, impact on businesses and protection of the riverside.

The Green councillors told Conservative-led Herefordshire Council that they must evaluate the impact on local traders before reducing parking space.

Under the council’s growth proposals Leominster is being forced to expand by a minimum of 2,300 houses in the coming years, so car parking space and a vibrant town centre are crucial issues.
