BAUGHURST villagers can have their say at a meeting on Tuesday evening (Jan 26) to discuss proposals for two huge village developments in the pipeline, affecting a golf course and a conservation area, straddling Tadley.

Baughurst Parish Council  has called the special meeting to discuss the likely impact upon the village of outline proposals for the two applications, including a large housing development and also a care home, both in Bishopswood Lane.

Jointly submitted by Gladman Developments Ltd and Tadley Land Ltd, one application is to build up to 145 houses, plus a 60-unit extra-care development, in a conservation area.

The proposals for the housing include up to 40 per cent affordable (housing), public open space and children’s play area, a village green and enhanced ecological area.

The second application, submitted by Graham Land and Developments, is for a part two, and part three storey, 120 bedroom care home, with parking and access, at Bishopswood Golf Course, in Bishopswood Lane

The meeting starts at 7.30pm, at the Hurst Leisure Centre, in Woodlands Road, (off Brimpton Road) , Baughurst RG26 5NL.

The first hour of the meeting (7.30pm to 8.30pm) will allow the public to view plans and make informal comments.

The following half hour (8.30pm to 9pm)  will be a full council meeting, for councillors to discuss the applications and make comments.
