Landform is promoting land to the south of Bretforton Road, known as Nursery Gardens, in Badsey for the development of approximately 95 residential dwellings. The site, which measures approximately 4.12 ha (10.20 acres) in area, directly abuts the existing Badsey Settlement Boundary and currently comprises an area of brownfield land (in use as workshops, offices and hard standing), an area under glass for market gardening and the remainder which is unused open backland.
Badsey is a pretty village with a population of around 2,700 and lies a few miles to the east of Evesham on the River Avon in Worcestershire. The area, known as the Vale of Evesham, is famous for its many market gardening operations and the high quality of local agricultural produce, which is sold to all the major supermarket chains throughout the UK.
The development proposals represent a logical extension to the existing village and will provide a high-quality housing scheme. In addition, the scheme will deliver an improvement at the Bretforton Road/Birmingham Road junction, together with a new footpath/cycleway and improvements to existing footpaths. The new footpath/cycleways will connect the northern and eastern parts of Badsey directly to the village centre, greatly improving access to the school and recreation club, which would otherwise be undeliverable.
Wychavon District Council is currently preparing the first stages of their new Local Plan and the Landform development proposals are being submitted and promoted as part of this emerging plan process.
