THE PARISH COUNCIL BUDGET AND PRECEPT
The proposed precept for 2019-20 is £25,043. For a Band D property this would mean an annual charge of £55.79 for Parish Council services. The charge for a Band D property in 2018/19 was £48.85; therefore the proposed added cost is £6.94, which is an increase of 14%. For more details see the documents published under "Finance" for 2019.

Do you have an interest in access to the countryside or Public Rights of Way?
Did you know that there are more miles of Public Rights of Way across Herefordshire than there are miles of road? Itís true. Some 2,113m of rights of way (compared to 2,070 miles of road) exist, including long distance promoted routes, loop walks and self-guided trails.
If you have an interest in using rights of way or views on how access to the countryside should be managed, the Herefordshire Local Access Forum (HLAF) is currently looking for new members.
You might be a landowner, walker, horse rider or have an interest in wildlife, conservation, disability access, heritage, conservation, tourism or sport. You might be a local business or involved in outdoor education and pursuits.
The Forum meets twice a year, with a few training and development sessions in between each meeting, and members volunteer to serve for a three-year term. While the post is unpaid, reasonable expenses incurred while carrying out duties are reimbursed.
The forum is designed to ensure that all interests are represented and heard, so working collaboratively with others is a key skill. The Forum is a statutory advisory body and provides views and advice to Herefordshire Council and other bodies, such as Government departments, Natural England, Forestry Commission, English Heritage and Sport England.
If you are interested in helping shape rights of way in the future, call Sue White, Public Rights of Way Team Leader, on 01432 261800 for a chat.

A small minority of dog owners are not clearing up after their dogs. Dog mess can cause serious illness particularly in children and people with reduced immunity. Tiny Toxacara Canis eggs can remain long after the rain has washed the visible mess away. It is seen as a significant public health issue, and dog owners can be fined for leaving their dog's mess in public places. The Parish Council is putting up notices to remind dog owners of their legal duties and increasing waste bin capacity in Leintwardine. The Council also plans to provide dog waste bag dispensers, so that dog owners will have no excuse for not acting responsibly.
