Thursday 17 January 2019 to Friday 15 February 2019. This consultation is closed and representations are available.

The Hereford Enterprise Zone Local Development Order (LDO) was originally adopted in April 2013. It was last reviewed and updated in November 2014.

It has now been reviewed and updated for 2018 and public consultation on the revised version ran from Thursday 17 January 2019 until Friday 15 February 2019.

The LDO is a simplified form of planning permission which permits certain forms of development, avoiding the need for individual planning applications to be made where proposals are in line with the aspirations for the Enterprise Zone.

All development covered by this LDO will be exempt from Section 106 obligations and future Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) requirements. Additionally there is no requirement to pay for prior notification applications, pre-application advice, amendments complying with the LDO or discharge of conditions. This will reduce the cost to developers and therefore promote and encourage the employment generation of this area.

A copy of the draft revised order with statement of the council’s reasons for making the order, along with the environmental report were available for inspection at:

  • Hereford Customer Services, Blueschool House, Blueschool Street, Hereford
  • Hereford Library, Broad Street, Hereford
  • Herefordshire Archive and Record Centre, Rotherwas, Hereford
  • Herefordshire Council Offices, Plough Lane, Hereford
