New plans for apartment proposal in Hereford

Ledbury Reporter: New plans for apartment proposal in Hereford New plans for apartment proposal in Hereford

DEVELOPERS behind an ambitious project to build a riverside apartment on stilts to replace a former restaurant near Hereford city centre have upped its plans.

Riverside Construction Ltd was granted permission to build a five-storey building at the old Campions restaurant site, next to Greyfriars Bridge, in 2011.

The proposal, which the developers said would provide "visual presence and stature" to one of the busiest routes into Hereford" included 14 flats and would be "T-shaped."

However, the latest application is to up the proposal to 18 flats, which would still be over five stories and includes 19 car park spaces.

If approved, it will include one one-bedroom apartment, 16 two-bedded and one three-bedded, with all the homes overlooking the River Wye.

The Campions building was demolished last year after remaining a derelict eyesore ever since it closed in the 1990s.

For Christ sake pass these plans!

This site looks like a complete bomb site! The original plans were for a seven storey modern building but that was rejected for being too modern!! Hereford needs to get into the 21st century!

Yes Colin, the Council should get on with it. But they won't. They'll make the applicant jump through the hoops, eventually lose hope and unless he or she is highly determined, they'll simply give up and forget why they ever bothered to think about creating any wealth.

Planning permission has been given on several occasions for flats on this site, the developers have trashed the site and have put a new application in.

Planning has only been given once before and that took 8 years of tedious negotiations. This is why Hereford is known nationally as a backward town that lives in the past !!

What continues to amaze me is the ignoring of brown field sites, derelict buildings both commercial and private. Campions is an ideal site for housing (on stilts), local authorities need to focus on these eyesores and minimise building on our greenfields; they aint making land any more.
