The site forms the south western quarter of a proposed housing development contained in the Leominster District Local Plan. The other elements of this proposal have been completed. Access to the site should be taken from one of the existing residential accesses which adjoin the site. The site is within the Conservation Area and opposite Weobley Castle Scheduled Ancient Monument, so a high standard of design will be required, in addition to consultation with English Heritage. The site is also within an area of archaeological interest and so an appropriate level of investigation will be required. The existing orchard is of importance to the character of the Conservation Area and so development will be restricted to the western part of the site. The site is suitable for medium density development of around 12 units incorporating an element of affordable housing. Welsh Water have advised that sewerage and sewage treatment facilities in the village area at or nearing capacity. In terms of sewage treatment in particular, the existing works can only accommodation an additional 20 houses in the village.
