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 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.

The site is being promoted in the emerging Wychavon District Council Local Plan, which is moving forward through the Regulation 19 stage which is expected to progress in late summer/autumn 2021.
