Hay-on-Wye is famous worldwide for its second hand book shops and the Hay Literary Festival. Clyro is situated on the A438 Brecon to Hereford road with excellent access to the surrounding countryside.

Planning Consent

Planning was granted in 2006 with planning permission for a total of 21 new homes, with the extra units forming part of the local housing initiative which have already been built out. Planning application reference number PR614400, dated 4TH January 2006, is already active with the provision of six local housing units, which are to be retained by the vendor.

Site Plan

An artists impression of the site plan is attached.


An electrical connection has already been established close to the site and is part of the existing works on the local needs housing phase. Apparently this connection has already been upgraded to cope with the anticipated 15 additional houses. There is no gas on site. For the local needs housing an air-source heating system was chosen and a BT connection is available in the access road. A section 104 agreement is being entered into between Welsh Water and the vendor for the provision of a separate water supply to the six local needs houses. For any further information the purchasers must make enquiries to Welsh Water.


Surveys have been completed for the site and a method statement has been agreed for newts and bats. The site has been surveyed as part of the social housing phase and soil test conducted to assess permeability and ground bearing pressure. It is understood that both were deemed to be satisfactory although further details can be made available upon request.


A survey is available if required. There were no findings on the site of the entire 21 houses and no restrictions or controls have been imposed.

Designer Layout

The planning permission is for a very much up-market design. This does leave some scope to alter the original plots, subject to Local Authority approval.


Freehold with vacant possession upon completion. VAT will not be charged on this disposal.


From Hay-on-Wye proceed out of the town in a north westerly direction on the B5351 signposted to Clyro. Upon entering the village of Clyro the development site will be found on the left hand side, as indicated by the agents For Sale board.
