Wider community benefits
New road junction & pedestrian/cycleway + contributions to local sports and recreation
An outline planning application for up to 90 dwellings in Badsey was submitted to Wychavon District Council in May 2023 and a public consultation is currently being held. The details of this can be found via the following link: jtp.co.uk/projects/badsey and freephone 0800 012 6730.
The site is allocated for housing in the draft Wychavon District Council Local Plan. The draft plan is moving forward through the Regulation 19 stage, which is expected to progress in late summer/autumn 2023.
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 site adjoins the existing Badsey settlement boundary and comprises an area of brownfield land (in use as workshops, offices and hard standing), an area under glass for market gardening and the remainder is unused open backland.
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 3.2m wide dedicated footpath/cycleway leading through to Post Office Lane and improvements to nearby 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.
