The Oval Re-Development
Please click here to view the November 2012 Newsletter ...
There is a considerable need for affordable housing across the County and we are committed to providing new homes and services to support sustainable communities and neighbourhoods, for current and future residents of Herefordshire.
Herefordshire Housing works with nine other housing associations, in a consortium called Spectrum Development Partnership, to bid for funding to build new houses. The consortium plans to build more than 1,000 affordable homes, a year, and in the West Midlands and already owns, collectively, 46,000 properties.
We are constantly looking for land suitable for the development of affordable homes. If you have land available with, or without, planning permission please contact us on, 0300 777 4321. Together we may be able to home some of the households currently registered in need.
Herefordshire Housing will advertise tenders here.
The Oval Re-development
Herefordshire Housing intends that the Oval area, including all of the three storey blocks on Kilvert Road, Broxash Drive, Belmont Road and Beattie Avenue will be regenerated. We anticipate this will involve the demolition of these blocks and the building of replacement homes in the area.
For further information please follow the link here to go to the Oval Re-development page.
The return of empty properties back into use is an essential part of the overall Housing Strategy to meet the accommodation needs of the people of Herefordshire.
The council’s housing needs and development team will work in partnership with Herefordshire Housing Ltd, WM Housing, Kemble Housing and Marches Housing Association over the next three years to bring over 50 empty properties back into use.
The Council can provide advice and in some instances financial assistance to help bring an empty property back into use. The Council also has an enforcement role in extreme cases where properties are left unoccupied for a prolonged time and in a poor state of repair, and where owners are unwilling to deal with them.
Owners can benefit from bringing their empty property back into use. Some of these benefits include:
Once a property has been registered as empty for over 6 months the Council contacts the owners to request that they complete a questionnaire relating to their empty property to establish whether the Council can assist in any way to help bring the property back into use.

AFFORDABLE HOMES FOR LOCAL PEOPLE
In 2012 and Jan 2013 Herefordshire Housing consulted with the community on proposals to build new affordable homes for rent and shared ownership in the village of Ewyas Harold. Information, analysis and feedback from this consultation can be found below by following the links.

Archenfield, Madley and Wood Edge, Ross-on-Wye
Our two redevelopment schemes at Archenfield in Madley and Wood Edge in Ross-on-Wye are technically complex projects involving demolition and new build. But they are of course much more than that. First and foremost they are about our residents and their community.
With a ‘people first’ approach the projects started with extensive consultation. We have involved residents in design choices in their homes and have ensured that choice in where their new home is located is given the highest priority.
This emphasis on ‘people first’ has also been instilled on the contractors who are on site everyday.
Providing a monthly newsletter informing neighbours on the movement of vehicles and any major project milestones is valuable in ensuring continued communication about the project. Also, having continued site liaison with the residents on a daily/weekly basis helps us to dispel any fears or rumours surrounding the project.
At Archenfield in Madley twenty six pre-fabricated concrete properties have been demolished and are being replaced with a mixture of new two, three and four bedroom houses together with two bedroom bungalows. The redevelopment is being undertaken in two phases. The first of which was completed in May and the second phase was completed in January 2009.
At Wood Edge in Ross-on-Wye a similar project is underway. The demolition of the existing pre-fabricated concrete properties is enabling fifty two new houses to be built. The first phase of the redevelopment is complete and the whole project will complete in December 2009.
Herefordshire Housing installed green roofs on a ground-breaking development of new affordable homes to help cut the cost of living in them.
The four houses developed off Kilvert Road, Newton Farm, have roofs planted with sedum, a low maintenance plant, to boost insulation. This will cut heating costs for homeowners, provide protection from UV light, manage rainwater more effectively than a traditional roof, reduce noise pollution and serve as a haven for wildlife.
Many of the design features were a first in Herefordshire and we hope we will act as a benchmark for other developments.
The half a million pound project was built on a former derelict garage site and has been completed by Herefordshire Housing, working as part of the Spectrum Development Partnership.
The two and three-bedroom homes were designed by DJD Architects, of Worcester, and constructed by Hydes Building Contractors, of Kington, with £268,000 grant support from the Housing Corporation.

Herefordshire Housing completed its first brand new development in 2006. The thirteen 2 bedroom bungalows were built on a former mainly derelict garage site off Golden Post, Hereford.
The new properties are all 2 bedroom bungalows for rent by older persons. Twelve are designed to Lifetime Homes standard; the thirteenth is to full wheelchair standard. Lifetime Homes are designed to add to the comfort and convenience of the home and supports the changing needs occurring throughout a family's life-cycle.
The bungalows were designed by DJD Architects in Worcester and built by Lovells. Priority was given to residents wishing to downsize to a smaller property from family sized homes enabling us to also make available much needed family accommodation.
With the help of a grant from Herefordshire Council, Herefordshire Housing purchased and adapted a bungalow for residents who have a disabled child. The family were existing residents who have three children, one of which is severely disabled. They were previously in a three bedroom house, however the disabled child was unable to go upstairs, or use a stair lift. The lounge was used as a bedroom and as storage for all of the specialist equipment required. Supervision of the other children was hampered by the layout of the house.
Adaptations to the bungalow included providing a ramped entrance, converting the bathroom into a wet room and widening doors inside the bungalow for wheelchair use.
