Adoption of Herefordshire Local Plan Core Strategy

The plan to build thousands of houses in the county during the next fifteen years, called the Core Strategy, was approved by the Herefordshire Council on 16th October.  As a result the policy for Little Birch has changed.  For the past few years no new building was allowed but now there is a target to increase the number of houses by 14%.
A total of 29 ward councillors voted for the plan and 16 abstained.  Several raised concerns such as  lack of health care and hospital provision.
