Current Planning Issues


Housing Developments in and around Ledbury

In recent years Ledbury has seen planning applications for substantial housing developments which, if approved, would amount to growth for the town of at least 1530 new houses, well beyond what is envisaged in Herefordshire's Core Strategy (800).   Of course Ledbury is not alone in this, it is a pattern repeated across the country where developers target Councils without neighbourhood development plans or with weak ones (see CPRE national website 'The right homes in the right places') or search online for 'Gladman' for interesting articles.
