NDP passes Examination stage

The Allensmore Neighbourhood Development Plan has successfully passed through the examination stage – the last stage before it’s put to a referendum.

The final examiner’s report was received on 23rd March 2020. The report is very positive and she generally suggests changes that either clarify and/or strengthen our policies. The modifications recommended by the Examiner and accepted by Herefordshire Council have been applied to the Allensmore Neighbourhood Development Plan; the latest version of the plan is here.

However, plans for the referendum are on hold during the current Coronavirus situation. Read more here.

Allensmore Community Team In Our Neighbourhood – ACTION

Do you need some help during the current situation? We are a group of Allensmore residents set up by the Parish Council volunteering to support local people where we can.

If you live in Allensmore and you are unable to get out and about, are a keyworker, or are following the Government’s self-isolating guidelines, we’ll try to help with getting shopping, posting mail, getting urgent supplies or medicines and prescriptions etc … or just be there if you want a friendly chat!

Call us on 01432 344188 or email on action@allensmore.org.uk or fill in the form below and we’ll get back to you.

Keep safe. Coronavirus is contagious. Please take every precaution.

Litter Pick postponed

Allenmore Litter Matters Event on 28th  March 2020 – NOW POSTPONED

 Organisers have taken the decision to postpone this event for several reasons:-

  • The coronavirus (COVID-19) situation is fast changing, but the health and safety of our residents is paramount.
  •  The ground is still saturated and many ditches remain full of water therefore impacting on safety and accessibility.
  • The number of volunteers available to help on the 28th March was very modest compared with last year.

We aim to rearrange this event later in the year – so watch this space.

As we now have a small supply of our own litter picking equipment, thanks to “Stop the Drops” long term loan facility as well as a kind donation from the Parish Council, we will be able to respond more quickly to any litter problems in our Village. This will ultimately help improve the environment for all of us so that Allensmore remains a great place to live.


In April 2019, WI Ladies, and 25 volunteers including Young Farmers, collected more than 35 bags, plus several large items from around our village

This year’s litter pick in support of The Great British Spring Clean 2020 & Herefordshire “Stop the Drop” will take place on

Meet at Village Hall @ 2.00pm

Litter picking equipment and high vis jackets will be provided courtesy of Balfour Beatty Living Places.

More information will be available nearer the date
