PLANS to build a major new housing estate in Hereford have been formally submitted.
Bovis Homes is pitching a 135-home plan on a 7.5 hectare site on the north side of Aylestone Hill.
The properties, of which which 46 will be affordable, will comprise of one and two-bed apartments, as well as a mix off two to five-bed homes.
The development also includes a cluster of bungalows on the western edge of the site where it adjoins the northern most existing properties on Aylestone Hill.
Bovis originally pitched a 150-home scheme at a public exhibition held at the Royal National College for the Blind (RNC) in February.
Some people who attended the exhibition claimed that the development would exacerbate the flooding problems in the area and the proposed site, opposite Aylestone Park, did not have a sufficient drainage capacity.
Bovis says that a series of soakaways from adjoining properties along Aylestone Hill will be connected into the new main sewerage drainage system which will be provided within the development.
Written submissions should be sent to Herefordshire Council by May 1.
