By Poppy Jeffery

Plans for 80 homes in Bapchild have been revealed.

Surrey development company APM Services has drawn up proposals for land off School Lane.

It says it intends to put in for planning permission for the scheme, which would include 36 affordable homes. A leaflet delivered to villagers outlines the plans, featuring a new village green.

It also promises to enhance the narrow junction between School Lane and the A2 by widening the entrance and putting in a right-hand turn lane on Fox Hill.

The fruit and veg stall off Fox Hill would be redeveloped into a village shop and space created for other traders, while the village hall’s parking area would be extended and mini football pitches installed. An orchard would be reinstated behind St Laurence Church.

It also says the school would benefit from more parking. Tennis courts and play areas are also mentioned. APM Services says it wants to hear what people think. For details visit www.bapchildconsultation.co.uk.
