Learn about our plans for an exciting new community in Ross-on-Wye
Kyrle Green is located on Dragon Road in Ross-on-Wye, as part of the wider St. Mary's Garden Village development. The scheme will comprise up to 93 new homes, including two, three and four-bedroom houses, of which 17% will be affordable housing.
Our reserved matters planning application was approved in May 2023, which deals with the finer details of the development, such as the mix, layout and design of the homes. We continue working closely with Edenstone Homes, local residents, Herefordshire Council and key stakeholders to develop plans for an exciting new community in the town of Ross-on-Wye.
It’s important to us that we listen to the views of the local community as we develop our plans. You can find out more about our proposals on this web page which will be updated as our plans evolve.
Our proposals meet the objectives set out within the outline planning permission for the site, which was granted in May 2023.
Our proposals currently include:
- Up to 93 high-quality new homes
- 17% affordable housing
- A range of two, three and four bedroom dwellings
- Detached and semi-detached two storey homes
- Open landscaped spaces
- Sustainable Urban Drainage system to manage rainwater through attenuation areas and swales
- Footpath and other sustainable travel options
Kyrle Green lies to the east of the A40 in Ross-on-Wye. The proposed development land was previously used for agricultural purposes.
Previous planning applications
Outline planning permission for this site was granted by Herefordshire Council in December 2019. This established the main principles of development, which Taylor Wimpey will adhere to as the site progresses.
Reserved matters planning application was approved in May 2023, focused on the delivery of up to 93 homes. This outlines the finer details of the development including the mix, layout and design of the homes.
History of the site features
As approved in the outline planning application, the main access into the development will be via Dragon Road. This primary road will run centrally through the scheme, with secondary, private roads branching-off to access homes. The main road through the centre of the development and nearby pedestrian walkways will be planted with trees, providing a quick and attractive way to get around the development.
We have prepared a surface water drainage strategy that proposes sustainable drainage systems to ensure the appropriate drainage infrastructure is in place to serve the development.
We have proposed the inclusion of an attenuation basin at the southwestern edge of the site to help control the flow of surface water.
We’re committed to building greener, healthier homes for us all. From energy efficient fixtures and fittings, to cutting our carbon emissions, and enhancing green open spaces, we build sustainability into everything we do.
Preserving and enhancing local wildlife is a key consideration when planning new developments. Our plans include significant opportunities to enhance the site and improve biodiversity through habitat creation and improvements.
