DEVELOPERS want to knock down a large Hereford house and build two apartment blocks near King George V Playing Fields.

The proposals for 42 Hinton Road include the construction of 12 flats and architects working on the scheme say the apartment blocks will reflect the two-storey height of the house they are replacing.

They say the proposal is a more efficient use of the site and fits in with national planning policy and the development plan.

The new buildings would be screened by boundary vegetation and mature trees already at the site.

Residents have until July 5 to comment on the proposals and Herefordshire Council planners expect to make a decision by August 31.
