At Peterchurch, Peterchurch

Guide price

A low-density site with Outline Planning Consent for up to 89 houses of mixed size and scale. The site is situated in the heart of Peterchurch with excellent vehicle and pedestrian access to the village amenities.


Peterchurch is situated in the heart of the Golden Valley. The village itself has an excellent catchment and a wide range of local amenities including Primary and Secondary Schools, Village Shop, Post Office, Public House, Restaurant, Doctor's Surgery, community facilities, Church and a regular bus service to and from both Hereford and Hay on Wye some 13 miles and 9 miles respectively. Abergavenny is some 25 miles to the south with Ross on Wye some 19 miles with its M50 motorway links to the national network.

Peterchurch has been identified as a main settlement and the focus of proportional growth in Herefordshire Council's core strategy.

The site is as per the attached plan with a residential area on an Outline basis covering approximately 9.8 acres (3.97 hectares). In addition, there is 2.95 acres (1.2 hectares) of allocated recreational space.

The site has main road frontage with easy access.

The indicative layout is proposing a 35% affordable allocation and although this is yet to be defined, the current suggestion is that the affordable element will be closer to the main access road. The estate road continues to the centre of the site, bearing into two separate cul de sacs with larger dwellings in more elevated locations on the north-west fringe with an outlook over the village.


Welsh Water:

We are advised that the investigations have established capacity and concluded that, with some operational management, sufficient capacity exists to accommodate the foul water into the main sewer on the highway.

There is a proposed attenuation pool within the development and a current surface water drain exists on the highway.

There is an existing 6 foul water drain and a 6 storm water drain located within the site.

Mains water is located within the main road


We believe sufficient capacity exists. Contact details; Western Power Distribution.

Agreement has been reached with Western Power Distribution to underground the power cables. Correspondence and plan will be available as part of the supporting documents.
