New homes and green spaces


New homes and green spaces

Image shows illustrative examples of the kinds of new home designs. Description to follow.

If some existing car park sites were made available for other uses in the future, potential options for redevelopment could include:

  • High-quality city centre homes that are affordable to local people of different ages
  • Accommodation for students of the newly created NMITE and existing College of Art
  • New green and open spaces for those who live, work in, and visit Hereford
  • Hotel or other visitor accommodation
  • Community and health facilities
  • Commercial workspaces

Design principles for new residential development

The masterplan will set out key principles to guide the development of new homes in Hereford:

  • High quality design
  • Respectful of surrounding architecture
  • Fitting local height and scale
  • Mix of tenures – sale, shared ownership, social rent
  • Strong environmental and biodiversity credentials
  • Supported by school, health, and community facilities
