Baddesley Beadle

Read the latest Baddesley Beadle for June 2021 magazine. Now available.

Please note that the Baddesley Beadle is no longer run by the Parish Council but will continue as an independent magazine.  The next edition is due out in December 2021.





Test Valley Borough Council have announced that the application fee for a temporary road closure will be waived for events that demonstrate that the event is for the purposes of celebrating Her Majesty's Platinum Jubilee.



Works will begin at the end of week commencing 24th January 2022 for trees to be felled through Combined Operations Wood, which is where the access will be constructed to the new development.

When finished the timber will be left on site but the footpaths will be left clear for access.  The timber will be removed once conditions are suitably dry in the field for tractors to operate.

Tree pruning works to the boundary of Mountbatten Park will be carried out on 8th/9th February 2022.

There will not be a need for a safety fence as the contractor will manage this locally to the pruning work on site.

The footpath will have to be closed temporarily (for safety reasons) when the contractor is felling trees near it but it will immediately be open afterwards and the contractor has been instructed to make sure that timber is removed from the path, so it remains clear for use.

Hoe Lane Roadworks - From 6 December 2021 to 6 April 2022

Please be advised that improvement works in Hoe Lane associated with the new housing development are programmed to commence on 06 December 2021 for approximately 16 weeks. Works will include drainage, kerbing and surfacing to both the main road and informal passing areas.

Due to the nature of the works in this narrow lane, a road closure will be required to carry out the works safely. Vehicular and pedestrian access to properties in Hoe Lane will be maintained except for a short duration when surfacing works will be carried out. A plan showing the road closure proposals can be found via the link below.

These works have been designed by  Awcock Ward Partnership, consultants to the Consortium of C G Fry and Son Limited, Wyatt Homes and Morrish Homes, and are being constructed by John Reilly Civil Engineering Ltd.

North Baddesley Parish Council is considering installing a Coffee Shop at their sports pavilion.  Councillors are looking for someone who is prepared to assist with the initial layout and design of the kiosk in the first instance, with a view to taking on the management of the coffee shop and day-to-day running.

It must be emphasised that alterations to the sports pavilion to install the kiosk have yet to take place but the Parish Council feels it would benefit a prospective manager to be involved in the initial design.

Anyone interested should contact the Clerk, email:

Use of Recreation Ground

The football pitches on the pavilion side of the Recreation Ground are undergoing works set out in a 6-year plan of improvements using grant funding from the Football Association and are therefore out of use for the foreseeable future.

There are other areas available but, due to the large number of teams already using the grounds, space is very limited.

All facilities at the Recreation Ground have to be booked, through the Parish Clerk, well in advance.
