Allensmore Neighbourhood Development Plan - Call for Sites

Allensmore Parish Council wishes to announce a Call for Sites for its Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP).

We would like to identify land which has potential for new housing up to 2031.  The results of the Issues and Options Consultation indicated that a number of smaller sites would be preferred to a single large site and therefore we particularly welcome submissions for small sites (single dwellings or small scale developments of 2-3 dwellings). Overall the NDP is required to support housing growth of at least 12 new dwellings over the plan period – up to 2031.

Land must be within our Neighbourhood Area which includes the settlements of Winnal, Allensmore, Cobhall Common and other small settlement pockets. You can see a plan of the Area on the Neighbourhood Development Plan here

Anyone with land which meets the description above and who would like it to be considered within the Plan, is asked to submit an application. Please do so using the Site Submission Form (word document) or Site Submission Form (pdf document) and providing a clear site plan with the site boundary marked in red.  (You may find the map available on the Herefordshire Council website useful. See here ) This will give us the information we need to make sure your site is properly assessed.   

Please send your completed Site Submission Form to Mrs A M Wright, the Clerk to Allensmore Parish Council, Longfield House, Kingstone, Herefordshire, HR2 9NE or email to to be received by 8th April 2018.

If you have a site which has been or is currently the subject of a planning application, we would also like you to complete a submission so that your site can be assessed and considered along with any other new submitted sites.  

All submitted sites will be subjected to an independent technical site assessment process and measured against the policies being developed for the NDP. Preferred Option Sites will be identified for possible inclusion as proposed housing site allocations in the next draft of the NDP and subject to further community consultation in the spring / summer 2018.
