Formerly a market gardening operation, the site accommodates an industrial unit adjoining agricultural use. Brewers Lane forms the south eastern site boundary with the local cricket and recreation club beyond. There is a new housing development, nearing completion, adjoining the northern boundary. Topography is relatively level over the site and the surrounding area. Existing access is directly off Brewers Lane into the south western corner of the site. This may also be the proposed access for any development proposals. The adopted Local Plan for the area is the South Worcestershire Development Plan (SWDP), a joint plan prepared by the three partnering Councils of Wychavon, Malvern Hills and Worcester City. The Local Plan, which was adopted in February 2016, sets out the clear vision for development in the area up to the year 2030. The SWDP identifies two housing allocations within Badsey, SWDP59/14 and SWDP59x, both situated to the northern part of the village, off Badsey Road. Badsey has been identified within the SWDP as Category 1 village, where there is a level of services and facilities suitable to accommodate market and affordable housing needs alongside limited local employment needs. In relation to a Local Plan review, Policy SWDP 62 (Implementation) states “Progress on the delivery of the SWDP will be monitored annually and a partial or whole Plan review commenced if the Plan is significantly failing to meet its objectives, or if the policy context requires a review”. The SWDP also states, based on evidence at the time of adoption, that a partial Local Plan review may need to commence by the end of 2019. The site is outside, but adjoining, the defined settlement boundary. It is outside any designated high risk flood zone and detached from the village Conservation Area. Significant areas to the north, west and south of Badsey are constrained due to high risk flood zones and some areas to the north face multiple ownership constraints.
