Plans to build 110 homes in Hereford to be debated next week
2:04pm Friday 11th July 2014 in News
A REVISED scheme to build a housing complex in Hereford will be heard next week.
Gladman Developments want to build 110 homes on land off Hampton Dene Road, near the Bishop of Hereford's Bluecoat School.
An initial application to put up 120 homes came up before Herefordshire Council's planning committee in April, but no decision was reached within a 13-week council deadline.
Gladman therefore appealed on "non-determination grounds".
That appeal is expected to be heard in September.
In the meantime, the firm has re-submitted an application to alleviate concerns by some councillors in relation to the effect the scheme would have on the landscape.
That proposal, which has been recommended for approval, subject to a number of conditions, will be heard by the planning committee on Wednesday.
