Weobley Neighbourhood Development Plan - Vision 2031


Our Neighbourhood Development Plan will provide guidance for Herefordshire Council when they are planning for housing, business, community and leisure in the parish of Weobley. It is a report which sets out what the residents of Weobley Parish would like their parish to become by 2031.


It will be translated into planning policies with legal status that will guide and inform future local government plans for the development of the area – it will not stop housing development but may influence location, style and density.


On the 12th, 13th & 14th September there will be an open community event where you will be able to share your own and others ideas about what you might like to see in Weobley in term of housing, business and employment, community facilities and leisure opportunities, etc. and where these might be located. There will be maps of the parish for you to use and you will be invited to indicate where you think these things should happen. We want as many people as possible to take part.


Views given at the September event will be used to produce a survey that will be sent to every householder in the Parish. The completed surveys will then be used to produce a draft report which will be open for everyone in the community to comment on before being finalised.


Work has already started. There is a small Steering Group who are going to be contacting local businesses and community groups over the next few months to arrange meetings to hear their views.


The Weobley Play Area


The Parish Council is pleased to report that Herefordshire Council has awarded a Community Grant, to the value of £2000, for a shelter at Hopelands.

Both the youth and visiting parents (and Grandparents!) will benefit from this. With funds left from the new play equipment, the grant and a generous donation from the firework display, we can provide a shelter.

It will look like a market hall, replicating the structure that once stood in the village. The building is being provided through the generosity of Oakwrights, a firm specialising in timber buildings. An illustration can be seen in The Old School Shop window.

We are very grateful for the help received . John Hurds has cut the hedge along the new permissive path, and "volunteers" Roger Grout, Kevin Hurds, Hywell Pritchard, Bob Reacord and Percy Layton trimmed the south hedge and prepared all six foundations for the shelter.

We have also had a pleasing response to my appeal for paving slabs, (we still need a few more)! It is great to know that people are willing to help this village project.

When the main part of the building is delivered, in early May, we hope to be able to complete the build in one weekend, so, if you would like to help, please get in touch with Andrew in the shop, Chris Breen 312143 or with me, Gerry York 319329

We thank Oakwrights for their generosity in providing the building at cost and for the donation from Mike Ware from the Firework Fund.
