Following this article in the Hereford Times - Children fear losing green to potential housing estate, tried to connect this reply with past history on Hereford Voice to no avail. Only 48 hours left to comment.

Housing and employment site options - Hereford Area Plan consultation

The Herefordshire Local Plan Core Strategy, adopted in 2015, sets out an overall framework for the scale and location of new development across the county. The Hereford Area Plan (HAP) will set out detailed proposals to ensure the delivery of the targets for the city in the adopted Core Strategy. It will include policies and proposals for growth in the historic city of Hereford including specific proposals for housing, employment and urban regeneration. In doing so, the plan must also protect and enhance its attractive built and natural environment, providing for its current and future community needs.

Housing and employment site options

Identifying and delivering new housing and employment land is a key policy area that the HAP must deliver. The Core Strategy identifies four strategic sites for housing and employment land at Three Elms, Holmer West, Lower Bullingham and the city centre area. These sites will account for a significant proportion of the city’s housing growth target for the plan period. It is the task of the HAP to identify further deliverable site allocations to aid the delivery of the remainder of the target.

Work has been carried out to prepare potential site options for the delivery of housing and employment growth in Hereford City and to help inform the preparation of the HAP.

There are several ways you can view the potential site options for housing and employment sites in the Hereford Area Plan before letting us know your views.

 I understand that we need more houses but we also need to keep some open space otherwise house will just be looking over houses. There are plenty of other areas where houses can be built. 

I also fail to understand why they never replaced the old flats with newer ones and maybe even increase them by other floor. We have less house now than before!

To re cap the previous dealings with Herefordshire Housing and the Council regarding Argyll Rise Open Space best to read from the post dated November 2, 2010 (edited). The post dated January 16, 2011 sums up the position following the rejection by the council for making Argyll Rise Open Space a Town Green.
