Appeal: 321 homes approved for Ledbury


Gladman Developments has been granted permission to develop 321 residential dwellings in Ledbury, Herefordshire, after an inspector determined that the scheme would not harm the Ledbury Conservation Area or the Malvern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

Inspector Jennifer Vyse noted that Herefordshire Council’s newly adopted Core Strategy does not allocate land directly, but proposes “broad, strategic directions for growth in sustainable locations”. The strategy does, however, confirm a minimum requirement for 16,500 homes over the plan period, with a minimum of 4,700 new homes focused on five market towns including Ledbury.
