Save the land at Three Elms!

The Church Commissioners are planning to sell the land between Three Elms, King's Acre & Roman Road in Hereford, to build up to 1500 houses. That is a development the size of Kington obliterating grade 1 agricultural land, robbing the people of Hereford of a popular retreat and putting greater pressure on our already struggling services.

We are not against the natural growth of Hereford. We understand that some new housing is needed. There are many disused wastelands in this sector of Hereford that we would love to see built on and turned to a good use, but we don't want something we treasure destroyed. The developers JTP have swept in from far afield, not really knowing us, not understanding the area thinking that somehow they are doing us a favour by bulldozing the very thing that makes our home unique.


You have until 31st October to object to the Outline Planning Proposals that have been submitted.

If this is accepted then piecemeal sale of the land will begin and building work will commence and continue for the next 20 years. Whether the outcome will resemble the outline plan is open to debate. The only way to preserve what we have is to object now!

Impression of what the estate will be like.
