A planning application has been submitted for the former Royal Bank of Scotland unit on Broad Street in Hereford.

The owners of the building and the applicant, Hereford Cathedral plan the following:

‘The aim of the project is to provide adequate facilities for potential office tenants conveniently located within the City of Hereford in a prestigious building, whilst conserving and enhancing the fabric of the building, therefore enabling its beneficial use and supporting the commercial income of
the Chapter.’

The site is the former Royal Bank of Scotland, now more commonly known as 21 Broad Street.

The building is not listed but does sit within the ‘Central Area Conservation Area.’ The building has now been empty since March 2019 and there is a significant commitment and interest locally to ensure it is bought back in to use.

The proposed works on site are for the renovations of 21 Broad Street designed to improve thermal performance in order to support its continued use.

21 Broad Street is owned by the Chapter of Hereford Cathedral. It was rented by Royal Bank of Scotland up until March 2019 and had been occupied by the bank for 40 years via a lease from the Chapter of Hereford Cathedral. The building has remained vacant since.
