  1. Over the past few years, we have noticed more and more planning applications to change use from shops to flats. Again today plans have been submitted here for 145 Eign Street Hereford shops are slowly disappearing and Herefordshire Council are often granting these plans. We will attempt to start highlighting each of these applications to show the scale of this trend from the Council. How plans were passed in Eign Street for this lot previously is beyond comprehension, how is this in keeping with the surrounding area? These buildings bricked up look horrendous!
  2. A planning application has now been submitted for a proposed conversion of retail units into 17 dwelling flats. Former Chadds building Commercial Street Hereford. The proposal seeks planning permission for the residential development of 17no. apartments, over 3 floors, with a new dedicated ground floor entrance, together with the rationalisation of the existing ground floor retail unit. The Proposal Although not of high architectural significance the character of the existing buildings is extremely well suited to its location. Rather than demolish and replace the buildings therefore a strategy has been adopted to convert and refurbish the existing property to contribute to the long term desire to revitalise of the area. The lack of retail or commercial interest in the building over a number of years confirms that it is no longer suitable for similar use on its existing scale. Realistically this is the case for much of Commercial Street. Failure to address this would see the building continue to be unoccupied for a prolonged period of time further negatively impacting on the character of the area. To assist in the re-invigoration the proposals aim to provide 17 self-contained apartments within the upper 3 storeys of the building. In effect this will bring people to the heart of the area facilitating increased footfall to the benefit of local business and enterprises. Additionally it may allow the ground floor retail element of the existing property to potentially be offered as smaller scale units more suited the location making this far more attractive to potential retail tenants and business owners ultimately making it increasingly likely that this will help spur occupancy and therefore start to again create a vibrancy to the street. The new proposals will include the provision of two new dedicated entrances off Union Street to serve the residential apartments. The most northerly existing ground floor entrance along Commercial Street will also be utilised likewise. These will provide direct access to stairs which lead to the upper floors of the building. The Apartments will be distributed as follows: First Floor Second Floor Third Floor - 6no one bedroom apartments. - 2no two bedroom apartments - 4no one bedroom apartments. - 3no two bedroom apartments - 1no one bedroom apartments. - 1no two bedroom apartments Each apartment will also contain a living dining kitchen together with a bathroom. All residencies will be of contemporary design and be of high quality standard and finish. New replacement windows will be provided to all existing openings to ensure they meet current regulation performance requirements. Two new window openings will be created for one apartment at second floor level but neither of these will be street facing. New Velux windows will also be provided to habitable rooms at third floor level. All dwellings are designed to comply with DCLG space standards. The Ground Floor will be largely otherwise unaltered until such time an interested purchaser or tenant is attracted to develop the reduced size units. - Planning application P173885/F
  3. After many many years being empty the Chadds store in Commercial Road has been sold.
  4. Argos are opening a click and collect in Sainsbury's Hereford. Unfortunately this will be at the demise of their store in high town. Argos main store has been under threat of closure for some time now and the the store in Hereford I am informed will probably close next year. Hopefully most of the staff will be offered jobs at Sainsbury's but this threatened closure is not good news for the city centre.
  5. Another year has passed since I last did this exercise. I was out in the city on New Years Day, this is the first opportunity I have had to upload all of my findings. (January 2015)lets see what has changed in the past year and see what the differences are from the original topic in December 2013 and from January 2015. 1.
  6. Just wondering as there appears to be a 'push' in that direction with publicity for the Polish night at 'The Victory' and also publicity for the new 'Polish' eatery on St. Owen Street. ..... ?
  7. I see that the Money Shop in Commercial Road has closed and the nearest branch is in Gloucester, so unfortunately we have another empty shop.
  8. Well we are just over a year on from the last time I did this exercise in this topic (December 2013), so lets see what has changed and see what the differences are... 1.
  9. Another sad day. Moss Bros closed in Hereford on Saturday for good.
  10. Another sad day for the city, after 35 years in Hereford, Mothercare is closing it's store on the 30th due to the lease coming to an end. Cafe Nero have now purchased the new lease. (scoop)
  11. Sirius store closed this weekend in Hereford, will this end up being another empty shop for our city?
  12. I had a walk around the city centre the other day and decided to count how many empty shops we have, how many do you think? I am sure that I may of missed some. 1. Lets see..
