The £6m HCCI project includes £3m Getting Building Fund to
refurbish the historic core of Hereford through investment in the
streetscape, landscaping and public realm. The project will increase
footfall and the economic potential of businesses, improve active
travel opportunities and air quality and increase private investment in
property, providing a modern city centre environment.
The project will also bring benefits to the public realm in the historic
core of the city centre, including the High Town area and the adjoining
Cathedral and River Wye Quarter, with improvements to paving, street
furniture, landscaping, city greening and public art. The commissioned
artists range from international and regional level to supporting local
Herefordshire talent.
The council has been allocated £243,000 to commission artists and
deliver the Hereford Public Art Programme across the city. This will
include a mix of street artworks, installations and a new public art trail.
