Maylord Orchards Interim Management Plan

To approve the Maylord Orchard Interim Management Plan.

The head lease of the Maylord Orchard centre was purchased in June 2020 to allow Herefordshire Council to exert greater control over the City centre and its economic and community development.
The proposed Interim Management Plan for Maylord Orchards is anticipated to cover a 3-5 year period with the City Masterplan forming the basis of the longer term strategy of the site that aligns with the broader plan for the city centre. The Interim Management Plan combines member’s clear aspirations to deliver a vibrant community environment and growth bed for local business underpinned by the financial viability of the centre that will increase footfall.

Making sure we have a robust, well thought out management plan for the future of the centre is vital to proving to current and potential tenants that the council has a plan for the high street; is a competent landlord and intends to make a success of using an established retail centre to offer a unique enterprise platform to local residents, business and community organisations.
