Hereford High Town improvements

Work to refurbish Commercial Street in Hereford High Town was completed in March 2019, enhancing the city as an attractive and easily accessible destination for visitors and shoppers.

The city centre improvements are designed to support the local economy and enhance the retail environment. The refurbishment scheme is part of the plan for Hereford to create an attractive, vibrant city centre to help support existing businesses and create new opportunities to encourage more visitors and retailers.

Since it opened in May 2014, the Old Market development has improved the leisure and shopping experience in Hereford and has brought more people to the city. The refurbishment of Widemarsh Street in 2010 created a popular and attractive link between the old and new parts of the city and the High Town refurbishment extends this area.

The improvements also help create an excellent space for pedestrians and cyclists and ensure a clean, modern and clutter-free city centre.
