The Baughurst Society has a long history of working with the community to address, and where applicable, oppose planning applications in the area. Recent attempts to build 165 houses on land at the top of Bishopswoods Lane, a care home to the north of the golf course, bungalow on land south of Oak Cottage and 4 Gypsy plots in Violet Lane have all occupied our attention this year.

Although the application for 4  Gypsy plots in Violet Lane was rejected the developer has now gone to appeal. Click on the Planning/Violet Lane in the menu above for more information
