Land off Kings Acre Road, Hereford

Off Kings Acre Road - Hereford - Herefordshire - HR4 0SP

We are preparing an outline planning application for a development of up to 80 new homes on land off Kings Acre Road in Hereford.

  • Land off Kings Acre Road

    We are currently drawing up proposals for a new development of up to 80 homes on land off Kings Acre Road, Hereford.

    The application site forms part of the Western Urban Expansion Area (known as Three Elms) within Herefordshire Council’s adopted Core Strategy.

    Under our proposals, 35% of the new homes will be provided as affordable housing, to be administered by a council-approved housing association for local people in housing need.

    In order to allow residents and key stakeholders the chance to find out more about our emerging proposals and provide us with their feedback, we held a public exhibition at Holy Trinity Church in Whitecross Road, Hereford, on 15th June 2016 between 3pm and 8pm. 

    The exhibition boards displayed at the event can be viewed by clicking here.

    The comments we received from local residents will help us to refine our emerging plans before we finalise and submit an outline planning application to Herefordshire Council in due course.

  • About the site

    The proposed development site is located on the western fringes of Hereford, to the north of Kings Acre Road and the west of Huntington Lane.

    The land is currently in agricultural use and covers an area of 2.9 hectares (7.1 acres).

    The site forms part of the Western Urban Expansion Area (known as Three Elms) within Herefordshire Council’s adopted Core Strategy. This strategic allocation provides for 1,000 new homes as well as employment space.

    In order to achieve the five-year housing land supply identified within the Core Strategy, there is a requirement for the short-term delivery of housing on these strategic allocations. This scheme will contribute up to 80 new homes towards this need.

    We are preparing to submit an outline planning application to the local authority for our proposed development.

  • What's proposed

    Our development is designed to work within the constraints and opportunities of the site and is a scheme that respects the area’s surroundings.


    Our proposals include the following key elements:


    • Up to 80 high-quality new homes

    • A mix of property types and sizes, including apartments and detached houses, with the majority of homes being three and four-bedroom homes

    • A provision of affordable housing (35%) for local people in housing need

    • Car parking will be provided for residents and visitors, in line with Local Authority policy requirements and standards

    • Vehicular access to be taken from Kings Acre Road to the south of the site in order to minimise tree loss along the road frontage

    • New pedestrian links proposed to the roads adjacent to the site, in order to encourage and facilitate walking and cycling for local journeys

    • A new children’s play area could be provided in the north of the site within an area of green open space

    • A sustainable development which respects the visual character of the local area

  • Community benefits

    We believe our proposals will carry wider benefits to the community of Hereford beyond the provision of new homes. These benefits will include a number of financial contributions that will be made towards the local community as part of our proposed development, in agreement with the relevant local authorities.

    These will be in the form of a Section 106 Agreement and further details of these contributions will be released once finalised with the council.
