A new plan to build another 75 homes in a village has been revealed.

The application by housing developer Metacre would see 75 homes built on fields off Brewers Lane in Badsey near Evesham.

The plan comes forward as part of wider work to build a further 90 homes on neighbouring fields in the village.

Housing developer Landform has finally pulled the trigger on its long-held plans to build 90 new homes on fields off Bretforton Road in Badsey 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 planning application which has now been submitted forms Metacre’s part of the deal.

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."

One huge homes plan for the village was rejected by Wychavon District Council in 2020 only for the government’s planning inspector to overrule the decision and allow the work to go ahead last year.

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. 

The council had years earlier rejected a plan to build 60 homes on the site - a ruling that was actually backed by the government’s planning inspectors when it dismissed an appeal.
