Description - A low density site with Outline Planning Permission for 89 houses located in the heart of Peterchurch Village situated between existing residential developments with good access.

Situation - The site is an infill plot located near the village of Peterchurch in the heart of the Golden Valley. The village itself having 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, doctors 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 Core Strategy. Peterchurch has the B4348 running through it offering easy access to larger town 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 covers approximately 3.97 ha (9.80 acres), this excludes 1.2 ha (2.95 acres) of recreational open space. This area is proposed to be located on the north east of the primary school however may be moved by negotiation.

The site has good main road access with the 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 site is a low density proposal with proposed large gardens and larger houses being in the more elevated positions along the north eastern boundary adjoining open countryside.

Services - The sellers are in negotiations with Welsh Water at present. The contribution at present is suggested to be in the region of £460,000.

The present outline scheme does not have provision for a property below the overhead electricity lines. The seller has an agreement with Western Power to relocate these cables underground therefore offering the potential to increase the housing density.

There is a 4 water main on site with a connection at the end of the current adopted highway.

A six inch mains drain is located in the highway adjacent to the property.

A six inch storm drain and a six inch foul drain are situated at the end of Hawthorn Rise which we believe are available for connection.
