North Tupsley Action Group - “Community Spirit”


N-T.A.G. was formed in February 2007 after two public meetings established a need for the community to band together to put a stop to anti-social behaviour that had been plaguing the area, and to highlight the complete lack of community facilities in North Tupsley. They now have a website at www.n-tag.org.uk.

Since that time N-T.A.G. has been very busy with a further, very well-attended meeting and several “drop in” days when residents were able to talk on a one-to-one basis to Committee members. From the concerns expressed here N-T.A.G. liaised with the Community Service Officers for the area, lobbied Herefordshire and Hereford City Councillors and took up other complaints from the residents. One in particular was the application for a large car park to be built on the site of the Art College building at the top of Pigott Close. N-T.A.G. strenuously campaigned on the residents’ behalf to have this application refused, and although the application was withdrawn a further one has been lodged. The complaint is due to the proposed entrance/exit onto a very small access road, which will exacerbate an existing parking and traffic flow problem.

Parking, road markings, speeding, litter and dog-fouling problems are ongoing issues, but we are happy to report that there has been a reduction in anti-social behaviour.

Two Youth Forum meetings were held and the children encouraged to start up a youth club, with fund-raising possibilities. From these meetings it was established that there was a need for play facilities for the local children as at present there is only one tiny area for toddlers. Herefordshire Housing has been most kind and co-operative in providing a place on their land for goal-posts. There was a competition held at Broadlands School when 73 wonderful drawings and paintings were entered by the children in which they showed what kind of play-area they would like in the area.

A “Summer Extravaganza” in aid of N-T.A.G’s community fund is being held on Saturday, 7 July at 1-4 p.m. at the White House public house, Whittern Way, with a car boot setting up from 12 noon (£4 a boot), table sales and much more. It is hoped the community will go along and support N-T.A.G. who are holding their very first event.

COMMUNITY TRAVEL PLAN

The CTP represents residents of St James and Bartonsham who are working with Herefordshire Council to reduce car dependency and improve conditions for walking and cycling and also to increase transport choice for residents and visitors.

This can be achieved through a combination of street design improvements and safer cycling, walking and public transport routes within St James and to the rest of Hereford.
