Learn about our plans for an exciting new community in Hereford
Our proposals include 92 new homes, including 3 and 4 bedroom houses, which will be perfect for young and growing families. We’ll also deliver 31 affordable homes for local people in housing need.
As part of the development, we plan to include a number of areas of open green space, as well as a children’s play area. Improved pedestrian connections will also be provided, giving residents convenient links to the local area.
Our proposal for Canon Pyon Road
The master plan
The development will include a mix of 1 bedroom apartments and 2, 3 and 4 bedroom houses, of which 35% will be allocated as affordable homes for local people.
The site will include a mixture of semi-detached and detached homes in a contemporary style. There will also be a small block of apartments.
Our proposals features
Access to the new development will be from Canon Pyon Road, creating a new entrance for residents. We’ll also be improving pedestrian routes throughout Canon Pyon, including a perimeter footpath which will run alongside the open green space on site.
The site is at low risk of flooding, and no significant flooding has been recorded at the site in the past. Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) will be installed across the development and, when combined with an attenuation basin, this will help to improve the drainage of surface water.
As part of our plans, we’ll be planting a variety of new native trees, shrubs and hedgerows, plus a wild flower grass land, to enhance the look of the development and provide additional habitats for our wildlife. New roosting and nesting opportunities for bats, birds and hedgehogs will also be put in place.
Our approach features
If our reserved matters planning application is approved, we will make a financial contribution to The County of Herefordshire District Council, which will be used to improve a range of local infrastructure and facilities. In addition, we will deliver open green spaces and a children’s play area on-site.
Amenities and facilities
As part of our proposal for Canon Pyon, we plan to create new areas of communal open space for residents to enjoy, including a new children’s play area.
