Campaigners lose fight to save church
10:20am Monday 18th June 2012 in News
CAMPAIGNERS have lost their long-running battle to safeguard a village church for the community.
Victory Gospel Church in North Baddesley will now be demolished after planners approved plans to build three detached homes in its place.
Council planners felt the new designs appeased previous concerns over parking, privacy for neighbouring homes and fitted in with the look of the village.
A condition was attached requiring the developer, Gale Homes Ltd, to contribute to a pot of cash made from selling the homes to community projects.
