Plans to build 110 homes in Hereford to be debated next week

Hereford Times: Gladman Developments want to build 110 homes in Hereford. Gladman Developments want to build 110 homes in Hereford.

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.

Here we go again, more houses, more cars, more holdups, it is obvious to all that this council must communicate with each other via Skype, because they do not seem to care about the constant congestion we have to suffer. living on the south side, means miles of detours just to escape the traffic if I want to go north.
and if I may make a suggestion about the housing crisis, how about building prefabs again?, affordable housing for all, not the select few who can afford in the region of £200.00 + all this does is put people in debt up to their eyeballs, giving no feeling of satisfaction once they have made the plunge, and are tied for ever, and will be when the interest rates shoot up .
The only people making any profit are the greedy house builders, I do not mean the builders themselves but the large companies for whom they work. Building Prefab style houses would be a terrific way for younger people to start the housing ladder, and possibly for older people to downsize if they did not want to live in a large house any more.
But the time has come when this council must make a real decision about our traffic problem, and I can't see how an extra thousand or so houses with at the minimum of two cars per house is going to solve anything
