Plans have been revealed for up to 95 homes in a village near Evesham.

Bloor Homes wants to build a huge new estate on land to the east of Birmingham Road in Badsey.

The site, which is made up of several fields and covers almost six hectares of farmland, is accessed from both Birmingham Road and Bretforton Road.

An outline application has been submitted to Wychavon District Council following a public consultation in January, which included a meeting with Badsey Parish Council.

The developer says the project would help address the area’s housing shortfall - and points out that there are four other large housing developments currently in the works in Badsey.

A number of residents have raised concerns over the proposed development.

Julie Irons said: “Yet more land grabbing with no thought to the locals that live here.

“Badsey can not cope with any more housing. Technically the proposed estate is not on Bretforton Road but more Birmingham Road, which cannot cope with the predicted amount of traffic.”

Lucie Apted said: “Yet again no thought about infrastructure and how this is going to affect local people in the area.”

She said it would put “more pressure on local schools, roads and GPs”, adding: “I strongly oppose this build.”

Andrew Edge said: “It appears that the roadways through Badsey are struggling with the increase of traffic before another 95 homes are built.

“Badsey is supposed to be a village and with another increase with the proposed 95 homes, this will be the end of its village status.

“I’ve not seen any plans for services such as doctors, chemists, school provision, so it will put more pressure on the services outside of Badsey.”

Helen Fowler said: “Villages are unsuitable for urban sprawl. Towns need revisiting to make provision for a higher density of living. Once open country is gone it cannot be recovered.”
