3.93hectares (9.71 acres) that forms part of a low density site with Outline Planning Permission for up to 89 houses located in the heart of Peterchurch Village situated between existing residential developments with good vehicle and pedestrian access to the village.


The site is an infill plot located near the village of Peterchurch in the heart of the Golden Valley.

The village itself has a large catchment area offering local amenities above and beyond what would normally be expected within a village including a village shop, primary school, well renowned comprehensive school, doctor's surgery, two public houses, one restaurant, hairdressers, police station, fire station, church and a regular bus service.

Peterchurch village is a main settlement and the focus for proportionate growth in Herefordshire Council's Core Strategy.

Peterchurch has the B4348 running through it offering easy access to larger towns and cities such as Hereford 12 miles, Hay-on-Wye 9 miles, Abergavenny 25 miles and Ross-on-Wye 19 miles. The M50 motorway at Ross-on-Wye provides excellent national access.

The Site

The residential area within this sale covers approximately 2.73 ha (6.75 acres), this includes 1.2 ha (2.95 acres) of adjoining recreational open space. This recreational area is proposed to be located on the north east of the primary school.

The planning permission covered a larger site area to include the adjoining land with that indicative layout suggesting 35% affordable housing located near the site entrance with a proposed service road running through the centre of the site and spurring into two separate cul-de-sacs. The original indicative site layout was a low density application, therefore the full planning application on this reduced area would need to either be a higher density or lesser unit application.


Welsh Water investigations and capacity assessment have concluded that with some operational management, sufficient capacity does exist to accommodate the foul only flows generated from the proposed development without additional contribution.

Mains Water is located within the main road and also has two possible connection points within the adjoining Hawthorn Rise Development.

Planning Permission

Outline Planning Permission was granted under Application No. P/132707/0. An area of 1.2 hectares of recreational open space is a pre-requisite of the scheme and provision for this space has been included within the development site on offer. This sale land is a reduced area.

Additional Land

Land to the northeast of the proposed site may be available by separate negotiation.

Access Reservation

The Vendor reserves the right of use of a highway adoptable access for vehicular use and services to both the land to the northeast and west of the sale land.

Uplift Provision

Provision will be made for an uplift payment in the event that the current density is exceeded above its prescribed 89 units.
