The auction of land on Badger Farm took place on 27th May, 2021. Badger Farm Parish Council did put in a bid to try and secure the land for the Parish but unfortunately were unsuccessful.
There were 19 bidders and the successful bid was £110,000.
We do not yet know who the winning bidder is.
However, in February, BFPC lodged the Village Green Status application with HCC
and we are waiting to hear whether this application will meet the criteria for Village Green Status
which will protect the land from development..

Welcome to Badger Farm Parish Council website!
B.F.P.C. currently has eight councillors who volunteer their time to help the local community. All councillors give their time for free and they do not claim any expenses for their work.
We keep in touch with local people through our quarterly article in the Community News, our twice yearly parish magazine, the Badger Bugle, our noticeboards, our website and through social media.
Badger Farm Parish Council feedback residents’ views on local planning applications to W.C.C. We are committed to ensuring the Badger Farm’s position of being without permitted development rights is upheld by W.C.C.
This has ensured that as Badger Farm has matured and expanded, that the initial vision of the estate architects to have houses that hug the hillside and blend in with the countryside are maintained.
A lot of thought was put into making sure Badger Farm wasn’t visible on the hill from central Winchester.
We aim to keep it that way. You can find out more about planning on our dedicated webpage.
We have lots of wildlife to admire and care for too. You will have seen the cows up on Whiteshute Ridge.
These are looked after jointly by Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust and W.C.C.
Please report any concerns regarding the welfare of the cattle or maintenance of Whiteshute Ridge to W.C.C.
We will be adding more information on local wildlife to a dedicated webpage and would be pleased to receive any of your photographs for the page.
You are also encouraged to contact us with ideas on how B.F.P.C., can do its bit to tackle climate change.
Residents are encouraged to come along and see the council in action.
The council does not take a political stand but strives to work with the community for the common good. Parish council meetings are held at 7.30 p.m. on the second Monday of each month (except August), in the Bushfield Room at Badger Farm Community Centre.
Badger Farm is a beautiful place to live, incredibly green, but just outside Winchester. Keeping all the lovely green areas well maintained is the responsibility of W.C.C., but B.F.P.C. does fund extra work on areas that residents highlight as looking unkempt.
If you have any ideas about areas that could benefit from one of our funded ‘tidy up’ projects do get in touch and let us know.
B.F.P.C. funds and maintains your two lovely local playgrounds, and looks after the park benches and noticeboards etc. We also give grants to groups that run community projects for the parish.
If you have an idea do get in touch. The applications close on 1st September each year.
There is always a slot on the agenda for members of the public to address council to raise any issues you would like council to consider. These interactions with the public are vital in order to ensure we are a parish council that delivers what local residents want.
Nothing replaces face to face contact though, so please visit the councillors page and get to know your local councillors. https://www.badgerfarm-pc.gov.uk/councillors/
Please do come along and get involved!
