On 7th November, Freeman Homes held a public consultation at St Weonards Village Hall in Herefordshire. The open event was publicised to the local community in advance, and it outlined plans for a potential development of 32 houses that built on and improved the existing consented scheme, which was put forward by another developer.

The updated development proposal was well-received by attendees. It offers considerable advantages over the existing scheme, including the provision of 11 affordable homes; the inclusion of a public space that better integrates with the village, making it far more useable for the community; an improved mixture of house types and sizes, including 6 2-bedroom homes, 9 3-bedroom homes and 6 4-bedroom homes; and a new bus stop and footpath for the village, amongst other contributions to local services and infrastructure.

During the event, members of the Freeman Homes team displayed architects’ impressions of the proposed homes, which are designed to be in-keeping with the area’s existing aesthetic. Comprising a mixture of stone, brick and render, the homes offer a traditional exterior finish and incorporate the spacious, considered layouts that are a Freeman Homes hallmark.

Following the public consultation, the feedback received will be reviewed and integrated into the planning process in order to produce the full planning application.
