*** UPDATE ***

As at 22nd April 2015 we have 406 on-line signatures, and at least 456 direct contact signatures, so thank you to all who have signed. Please pass these petition details on so that we reach our target of 1000.

The public inquiry is starting at 10.00 on Tuesday 28 April 2015 at Hereford & Worcester Group Training Association, Holmer Road, Hereford, HR4 9SX. If you wish to, you should be given the opportunity to read out a statement at the beginning.

February/March 2015

Bovis Homes are seeking to build 135 homes to the east of Aylestone Hill in Hereford, close to the important Lammas (Lugg) meadow which is a site of special scientific interest (SSSI).

Apart from the damage it is likely to do to this rare meadow, (there are very few Lammas meadows left and the Lugg Meadow is the largest), these houses will massively alter the view of the approach to Hereford, significantly increase traffic and the difficulty getting into and out of Hereford city and make parking for the schools more difficult than it is already.

Hereford Council has rejected this application but Bovis are appealing at a public inquiry in April.

ALMA wishes to support the Council in trying to preserve this area from yet more development and we would value your support by asking you to sign our petition.
