Leadon Vale, Ledbury – Public Consultation – May 2020
We are pleased to provide you details of Leadon Vale, a new community-led development with a mix of uses to benefit the residents of Ledbury.
Leadon Vale is a triangular site where Leadon Way (A449) and Dymock Road (B4216) both meet and is adjacent to the Old Wharf Industrial Estate (HR8 2JQ).
About Leadon Vale
Leadon Vale is being developed by Deeley Group, a family-owned company, who engage with the communities we work in to ensure we leave a sustainable footprint everywhere we go.
Leadon Vale has been designed with the needs of the residents in mind and will comprise of:
- A Community Medical Centre
- A locally-run Children’s Day Nursery
- A Lidl Food Store
- Appropriate vehicle, cycle parking, safe pathways and landscaping to link the site to the surrounding communities
By clicking on the Location Plan you will see these facilities in the context of their surroundings.
What are we bringing to your community
Leadon Vale will offer a range of amenities and employment opportunities through the nursery, medical centre and food store and these new facilities will support existing and new residents and businesses in the South of Ledbury.
Our consideration of your environment
These facilities are proposed to be well-designed, energy efficient buildings that respond positively to the surrounding area through good, contextual design including a green roof to the Lidl food store
By clicking on the Indicative Landscape Plan it highlights how the scheme will retain much of the existing vegetation around the site, whilst the Lidl store will also feature a green roof.
We want to hear from you
A Public Consultation would have taken place during May, however due to the COVID-19 virus, we have decided to conduct the event online to give local people the opportunity to provide us with feedback prior to the planning submission.
If you get the opportunity, please consider these plans and complete and submit the questionnaire by clicking the link below.
We thank you for taking your time to give us feedback on our proposal for Leadon Vale.

Below are the comments of Oliver Marshall, Director of Woodlands Nursery, who will open their third pre-school at Leadon Vale
We are delighted to be able to take forward these plans for a new purpose-built nursery school at Leadon Vale.
The Woodlands Nursery Group is a family-run business that began 33 years ago in our home near Ross-on-Wye, before we opened our second nursery in Hereford six years ago.
Both Oak House and Beech House are rated OfSTED ‘OUTSTANDING’ and have been finalists in the national NDNA ‘Nursery School of the Year’ Awards.
Our vision for Cedar House in Ledbury is to offer the same high quality Early Years care and education, which the town deserves.
Taking children from 6 months of age into our homely and dedicated Baby Department we can help them grow and develop, meeting their individual needs all the way up to our Kindergarten class.
The nursery grounds are designed to create an adventure-packed space, with a wealth of outdoor learning opportunities, and include a wooded area and kitchen garden for use in our dedicated Nursery Kitchens.
We have been searching for a site near Ledbury for a number of years, having been told by local people and businesses that they desperately need an Early Years facility like this in the town.
Leadon Vale offers the perfect location to support local people: it is within walking and cycling distance of houses both old and new, a medical facility, major local employers and a supermarket.
As well as supporting families we will offer at least 23 full and part time jobs to qualified and apprenticeship staff.
Our in-house training academy offers Level Two and Level Three professional qualifications to support local young people who are looking for a career in Early Years.
Leadon Vale is a really well thought out proposal, and as a local business we are delighted to be involved. We believe it will be a credit to the area.
