Below is a section from the Wellington Heath Development Policy WH7 relating to this site. - Given the sloping nature of the sites, and the visual sensitivity to views from the west, development should be sited to ensure that buildings do not break the skyline of the ridge. - Development should be well screened along the Ledbury Road boundary and along internal service roads, by landscaping trees and hedgerows planted with native species characteristic of the area. Boundaries around and between the plots should be of hedgerow planted with native species characteristic of the area. - Development of up to five 4-bedroomed or seven 3-bedroom houses or bungalows, or a mix of the two will be supported on site 19a south with associated large plot sizes. - The hedgerow along the Ledbury Road next to site 19a south is to be restored with characteristic native species; access roads and driveways are to minimise the impact on the hedgerow and must be of a rural character. - For safety, vehicles must be able to enter and leave the sites from the Ledbury Road in a forwards direction. - Developments on site 19a south must assist in achieving safe routes for pedestrians and cyclists in accordance with policy WH16 - Footpaths. An urban-style pavement alongside the Ledbury Road is not acceptable. The difficulty of implementing a satisfactory route across multiple land ownerships is acknowledged.
