Plans for 800 city centre homes to go on show in Hereford
3:08pm Tuesday 5th March 2013 in News
Plans for around 800 homes close to the multi-million pound Old Livestock Market development go on public view for the first time next week.
Sanctuary Housing will present the first phase of its “urban village”, earmarked for land on the Merton Meadow, ahead of submitting a planning application.
The public consultation will be held at the Freedom Conference Centre on Coningsby Street between 2pm and 8pm next Wednesday.
Jonathan Mullins, Sanctuary’s head of development for the Midlands, said: “This is an important project to deliver new, much needed affordable housing in Hereford and we’re keen to speak to local residents to hear their views on our proposals.
"Their feedback will be invaluable in shaping our plans.
“Our aim is to use the regeneration project to generate new employment and training opportunities, encouraging our contractors to use local suppliers and recruit from the local area, as well as create apprenticeship opportunities for young people.”
