The proposals seek to improve playability, player safety, and increase the amount of overall play allowed on the course, which would remove the need for temporary greens.
An application was submitted in April 2016 with support from landscape and visual work undertaken by Bridges Design Associates. This showed how the golf course could incorporate extensive planting and landscaping which would result in virtually no adverse landscape or visual impacts in the medium term, and no long term adverse impacts. The appraisal further identified that long term benefits to the local landscape character would be gained and enhance the appearance of the area.
The largest constraint to the project is the fact that the land is located within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). However, through sensitive construction management planned in phases, and landscape planting, the council has agreed that the proposals will result in an overall enhancement to the character of the area. Having dealt with all significant areas of concern the application was approved by delegated authority in July 2017. We have recently submitted an application to discharge the relevant pre-commencement conditions so that works can begin on site at the end of this year.
