The following are all correspondence files relating to matters concerning roads in the parish. Subject matters include street lighting, road maintenance and the speed of traffic, as well as proposals to close the slip road into the village from the A40. The majority of the paperwork however, relates to a dispute between the parish council and Hereford and Worcester County Council about who was responsible for maintaining roads classified as Byways Open to All Traffic in the parish. The county council accepted responsibility for maintaining these roads in 1992, but the parish council remained dissatisfied with the standard to which they were maintained. They sought legal advice and had a survey carried out by a highways surveyor. As a result, they took the case to the magistrates’ court, who found in their favour in September 1993. The county council were ordered to make repairs to the roads, which they began to do, but never finished, as they decided to seek a judicial review on the magistrates’ decision. The correspondence relates to all stages of this process and includes reports made by the highway surveyor, both before the parish council went to the magistrates, and to assess the standard of the rectification work carried out by the county council after the magistrates’ decision. The parties included in the correspondence are the parish council, the county council, the parish council’s solicitors, residents of the parish, the Herefordshire Association of Local Councils, the County Association of Local Councils and parish councils elsewhere in the country seeking advice on similar problems. Newspaper cuttings relating to the dispute are also included within these files.
