The Location

Hereford is a cathedral city and the county town of Herefordshire. The city lies on the English bank of the River Wye, approximately 16 miles east from the border with Wales. Hereford is commonly referred to as the heart of Herefordshire, with the cities of Worcester and Gloucester both within 25 miles. With a population of 53,000 it is the largest settlement in Herefordshire.

Hereford is a historic city famed for its architecturally-renowned cathedral and for its rich agricultural heritage. Settled within Herefordshire’s picturesque landscape the city blends both historic charm with modern retail and leisure amenities. The city is popular with both residents and tourists alike owing to its vibrant high street offering a mix of medieval and contemporary architecture. Local attractions in Hereford include the Old

Market, a restored market square that is now home to a variety of shops, restaurants, and cafes; the River Wye, which is popular for walking, fishing, and boating; and the Courtyard Hereford, a performing arts venue that hosts a variety of plays, concerts, and other events.

Hereford is well located with main road connection links via the A49 north connecting with Leominster, Ludlow and Shrewsbury, the south via the A49/A40 to Ross-on-Wye, Gloucester & Cheltenham, and the east via the M50 to M5 corridor with access to Tewkesbury, Worcester and the wider Midlands area.

Local Plan

The Core Strategy has identified 92 hectares of land (Three Elms which is directly to the south and west of the site) as an area for urban extension under Policy HD5 of the Core Strategy (2015). 

The land spans from the A4103 in the north to the A438 in the south and surrounding Huntington and will look to deliver a minimum of 1,000 homes; a minimum of 10 hectares of employment land; primary school; a neighbourhood community hub; POS; Green Infrastructure and associated works.

It is clear that the council consider this area of Hereford a priority for appropriate urban expansion and development.

Links & Transport

Hereford benefits from superb transport links, with the A438 connecting to the M50 motorway 16 miles south.

Hereford Railway Station is located north-east of Hereford town centre, a 9-minute drive or a 16-minute bus journey to the site. Hereford Station offers direct train services to Birmingham, Worcester, and Shrewsbury.

The closest bus stop is a 3-minute walk to the Three Elms Inn which connects a comprehensive bus network to the wider Herefordshire region.

The Site

The site entails previously developed land currently occupied by hard standing and used principally as a HGV transport yard.

The property extends to 1.9 acres (0.76 hectares) and is broadly triangular in shape with boundaries defined by mature hedgerows and fencing. The site is largely flat in topography with gated access to the east of the site onto Tillington Road.

The site is located 3.2 miles from the city centre upon Tillingham Road, immediately off the A4110 (which sees on average, 9,100 vehcile movements per day).

To the north and east lie residential dwellings (average residential house pricing of £300,000 (£315 per sq ft)). The area is undergoing significant redevelopment, with Taylor Wimpey having achieved planning consent for 95 houses situated approximately 400m north of the subject site (Planning reference: P221639/AM).
To the south and west lies open farmland.

An outline planning application was submitted on land to the south west of the site in June 2022 to Hereford County Council. The proposal seeks outline planning consent with all matters reserved, except access, for the first phase of an urban extension comprising up to 350 homes (Use Class C3), park & choose interchange; together with open and play space, landscaping, infrastructure and associated works (Planning reference: P222138/O).
