THERE are plans to place 22 holiday caravans on a racehorse gallop near Ledbury.

Ravenhill Developments Ltd wants permission for the new holiday and changes to the access on land off Roman Road in Aylton.

The proposals are for 22 pitches each accommodating a 40ft by 20ft static caravan on the 4.7 acre site.

The plans include a modified link between a private drive and the A4172 Roman Road and a new tarmac hardstanding at the junction.

If approved, there would also be a turning space within the site for bin lorries and other large vehicles.

The existing sandy private drive would be resurfaced with gravel or hardcore and each caravan would have a dedicated parking space.


Consultants working on the scheme say the scheme is sustainably located with good links to Ledbury and the Malvern Hills.

They also say the plans will support the local economy and generate employment.

People have until February 18 to comment on the proposals.

Herefordshire Council is expected to consider the scheme by March 30.
