Up to 95 homes could be built near Bishop of Hereford’s Bluecoat School
UP to 95 homes could be built near a Hereford school.
Gladman Developments has put forward its proposals for land off Hampton Dene Road, opposite the Bishop of Hereford’s Bluecoat School.
The scheme also includes access, parking, a public open space and play facilities.
The firm will be holding a public consultation exhibition at Bishops School from 6pm to 9pm tomorrow (Wednesday) where the plans will be on display and people can have their say.
Leaflets have already been distributed to more than 560 households in the area.
“Gladman consider that Hereford has a key role to play in meeting the future housing needs for the city and the county,” said Tim Dean, spokesman for Gladman Developments.
“This site offers a good location for new homes which can be accommodated on the site with minimal impact on the local landscape.
“The site is highly accessible and will integrate well with the existing community.
“The development will be sustainable and will directly assist the council in delivering new homes to meet the city’s needs.”
The firm added that all public comments will be considered as a result of the initial leaflet and public exhibition and an outline planning application will be submitted in due course to the council.
This includes a statement of community involvement (SCI) which will include details of how comments and suggestions have been considered to shape the proposal.
- Meanwhile, an outline planning application has been submitted for residential development in Bartestree.
Dr Yiannis Karayiannis is the applicant behind the proposal for land adjacent to White House, near William’s Mead.
Senior Herefordshire Council planning officer Charlotte Atkins said that the purpose of the application is to seek a decision as to whether residential development of the site is acceptable in principle and, at this stage, no details can be reported as to how many homes are being proposed.
The consultation period ends on Wednesday, September 18.
