Herefordshire Council Public Realm Services

Delivering key frontline services for Herefordshire

Our 10 year, £200 million Herefordshire Council UK Public Realm contract covers highways maintenance and improvement works, street lighting and street cleaning, as well as responsibility for public rights of way, parks and open spaces.

In December 2023, we were awarded a £54 million two-year extension following a history of good performance, effective asset management and delivering value for money since Balfour Beatty first partnered with the Council in 2013.

Delivering a sustainable customer focused service

We will improve the condition of Hereford’s highways and be responsive to local needs and priorities. Through developing sub-contracting and supply chain opportunities, we will also contribute to the regeneration of the local economy.

Our commitment to putting customers first, understanding and responding to their needs, helps us deliver excellent services and value for money.

The outcome? Roads and footways will be safe, clean and uncongested, public rights of way will be accessible, safe and appropriately maintained, and parks and public spaces will be well-planned, attractive and accessible.
