Following the award of enterprise zone status in August 2011 approximately 45 hectares (110 acres) of council owned land was included, along with other privately owned land, in the designated EZ.

All the EZ land is being actively marketed, and is being sold according to independent land valuations and the EZ Land Disposal Policy which was approved by cabinet member on 7 January 2016.

Sustained progress has been achieved with well over 50 acres sold to date.

The sale of the land is on a freehold basis. The purchaser will not accept or proceed with the purchase on any other basis.

This sale has the full endorsement of the Hereford Enterprise Zone Board.

The sale is to a local business who wishes to develop small scale business units for rent.
