Taylor Wimpey want to build 300 homes on fields on the outskirts of Hereford.

Taylor Wimpey UK has submitted plans to Herefordshire Council to develop land north and south of Grafton lane.

Their proposals for the site include affordable homes, green space and play and recreation areas.

The scheme would also see a new access created from the A49 Ross road while vehicles will also be able to enter the site from Grafton lane itself.

Architects working on the plans say the proposals for the more than 32 acre site comply with the council’s core strategy and national planning policies

Around 19 acres of the site would be used for housing, this works out at an average density of around 39 homes for every 2.4 acres.

And just over eight acres would be used for public open spaces, a new children’s play area, landscaping and a new network of traffic-free routes.

The proposals would also include pedestrian and cycle links and architects say the housing estate would be benefit from the existing nearby bus stops on the A49.

The site itself currently covers four parcels of arable farmland.

Residents have until September 26 to comment on the proposals.

Herefordshire Council planning officers are expected to consider the scheme by November 2019.
