Like other authorities, Herefordshire Council employs a policy of vigorously pursuing private householders and small businesses for debts that have accrued when Council Tax and Business Rates payments have been allowed to lapse. Therefore we note with dismay the authorities seemingly relaxed attitude towards the £65K debt owed to it, and therefore to the council tax payers of the county, by HEREFORD UNITED FOOTBALL CLUB (1939) LIMITED due to non payment of the Rent, Business rates and legal expenses related to the Edgar Street Stadium site. This site is after all owned by the people of Herefordshire and entrusted into the custodial care of our elected representatives.


Herefordshire council have recently stated that they are not vigorously pursuing this debt at this time as it does not affect the solvency of the Council. However at a time when roads are not being repaired, grass isn't being cut and public conveniences are closed as well as cuts to other public services continuing to bite, this statement rings a hollow note.

We the undersigned therefore demand that Herefordshire Council, without further delay, take the necessary legal steps to ensure full and immediate payment of this debt.
