Growing out of the It’s Our City campaign and a number of other local groups, but separate from them, It’s Our County has been formed out of frustration at the state of local politics. Local people feel disconnected, unrepresented and powerless to protect what makes Herefordshire special.
Despite numerous and expensive “consultations” they feel they have no real say in how their money is spent.
We are frustrated at the way in which national political parties and agendas stifle real progress in our county and result in inappropriate and unsustainable solutions for Hereford, the market towns and our countryside. We are therefore an independent political party with no affiliations at a national level, committed to putting Herefordshire First.
