Planning Application – 3 Bretforton Road

Application to build 100 dwellings at the rear of No. 3 Bretforton Road, Badsey.

Thank you to residents who have already commented on planning application 21/00557/OUT Land Rear Of No 3, Bretforton Road, Badsey Residential development of up to 100 no. dwellings with associated access roads and car parking, public open space, landscaping, drainage and other associated infrastructure, following demolition of no.1 Bretforton Road.

After a meeting of the Parish Council Planning Sub-Committee the PC has decided to object to this application for the reasons below.

If you would like to know more about this application follow the link below this post.

There is currently a consultation on this application. If you would like to make your voice heard (for or against) you should follow the link below and click on the ‘Make comments on this application’ button on the top of the page.

Please note that the link is the ONLY route to comment. Views MUST be expressed to Wychavon District Council planning department (not to Badsey and Aldington Parish Council).

All comments need to be made before the 15th of April 2021.

The comments from the Parish Council are treated as a single comment with no additional weight in the process than any other resident. The Parish Council has NO planning powers in this matter.

While similar to previous applications that residents may have commented upon this is a new application so no previous comments will be taken into account. This means residents have to make a fresh comment on this application.

The PC would suggest comments should be specific and as objective and reasoned as possible. A simple “we don’t want more houses” or “what a great idea” does not really move the position forward even if that is your view.

Badsey PC objects because:

  1. The site is outside the area designated for development in the South Worcestershire Development Plan, in an area classified as open countryside.
  2. This application appears identical to 20/00724 by the same applicant which was refused. An earlier application for 60 homes on the same site in 2017 was refused and the appeal dismissed. The reasons for refusal in both cases remain valid.
  3. The argument put forward by the developer that the local authority does not have the required 5-year housing land supply is refuted by the local authority. Even if Wychavon did need more supply, this is not the place for it, as is evident from point 1, and it could be achieved via smaller more scattered developments.
  4. The development of 100 homes on the site would result in an unacceptable density of housing.
  5. Granting of this application would set a precedent. No open area of land around the village whether in the SWDP or not would be safe from development. It would make a mockery of the SWDP.
  6. There were over 80 objections to the 2020 application from local residents indicating widespread opposition.
  7. The proposal for a new estate of 100 homes would represent a disproportionately large increase to the village and consequent pressure of local services and infrastructure. The village has absorbed many new smaller developments in recent years. We have had our share and don’t want any more.
  8. The vast majority of residents of the proposed new development would use cars. It is not realistic to imagine they would use the sparse local bus services in any significant way. This would mean approximately 200 extra vehicles being driven on to the B4035. This road is already subject to regular complaints from residents regarding speeding, noise and vibration. A new junction would exacerbate congestion on the road. It is most likely that the majority of those vehicles would need to turn right onto the busy B4035 in the mornings in order to access the A46 to reach places of work, which will almost certainly not be local.
  9. It is foreseeable that parents on the new estate would not want their children crossing the B4035. It would be dangerous for them to attempt this. No doubt they would then drive them to the primary school exacerbating parking and visibility issues around School Lane.
  10. We are concerned about the pressure such a large development would place on the sewage system.

25.3.2021 Planning News
