The Land Development team within the Gloucester office of national property consultancy, Bruton Knowles, is marketing a prominent agricultural site in The Hamlet of Little Tarrington, Herefordshire. The site will showcase a unique mix of dwellings, including market housing, live work units, self-build plots and affordable homes.
Full planning permission has been granted for 17 new dwellings, comprising of 10 open market homes, two live-work units and five affordable homes. In addition, outline planning permission has also been granted for 10 further dwellings, situated immediately adjacent to the east, including six open market homes, two affordable homes and two self-build plots. The 7.09 acre site is 300m East of Tarrington Village, off Little Tarrington Common Road and the A438.
In total, the overall development will offer 27 new homes to the market (ranging from 1-4 bedroom dwellings), which will help to address the current housing crisis and provide much needed affordable housing in the region.
Plans also acknowledge the growing trend for home working, with the provision of contemporary live work homes. These homes will combine work space with living quarters, using architectural design to divide spaces and meet the needs of professionals and entrepreneurs based at home.
Associated roads, footpaths, junction improvements and drainage are also approved, as is the development of informal public open space and planting of hedgerows, trees and orchards.
The A438 provides a city link for commuting, linking Little Tarrington to Hereford, 8 miles to the west and the A417 to the east, which connects to J2 of the M50 motorway, 12 miles away. There is a bus stop located within 120m south east of the site providing links to Ledbury and Hereford, both of which have mainline railway stations providing connections to London, Birmingham, Newport and Bristol.
Harry Breakwell, Associate at Bruton Knowles said: “This is a unique rural scheme, standing out due to its trailblazing mix of market, affordable housing, live work units and self-build plots. Importantly, in the current housing crisis, Little Tarrington will play a vital part in providing affordable housing for the region. The site will also address the ever-growing trend of remote working, providing suitable and attractive facilities for those living and working from home and offer two self-build plots, for those wanting to build their own home.”
