A plan to build more homes in a village has been put forward – adding to 260 homes already in the pipeline.
The move by Lone Star Land would see 35 homes built in Badsey near Evesham and if approved would add to 260 homes that are already set to be built in the village.
The mix of one-bed flats and two-to-four-bed homes would be built on fields off the village’s Bretforton Road according to a planning application submitted to Wychavon District Council.
Three planning applications totalling 260 homes are still in the process of being decided by Wychavon District Council.
The latest to come forward was a ‘screening opinion’ by Bloor Homes which last month teased plans to build 95 new homes on the opposite side of Bretforton Road in Badsey.
A separate plan by Metacre would see 75 homes built on fields off Brewers Lane in the village.
The plan comes forward as part of wider work to build a further 90 homes on neighbouring fields in the village by developer Landform.
The housing developer finally pulled the trigger on its long-held plans to build 90 new homes on fields off Bretforton Road earlier this year.
The application by Landform also revealed the intention of fellow developer Metacre to build more homes south of its development and nearer to Badsey Cricket Club with the two estates eventually joining up.
The much-delayed review of the South Worcestershire Development, which sets out where homes will be built across the Wychavon district in the next 20 years, included the fields in the village as a potential site for up to 120 new homes.
Complaints continued against the 90-home plan after it was submitted with hundreds saying they did not want the work to go ahead.
This followed hundreds of villagers in Badsey coming out against previous several plans for housing in the last six years – with objectors saying the village was “already bursting at the seams."
The plan to build 100 homes less than 500 metres away on land next to Badsey Remembrance Hall was approved by the government’s planning inspectors – nearly two years after it was rejected by Wychavon District Council – who gave the green light to the work despite the council saying that so many homes should not be allowed to be built in the countryside.
