"Colchester Borough Council in cahoots with Colchester Golf Club for the proposed development of 88 new homes on Green Belt land."
Yes, Colchester Golf Club secretary, that is the headline that the Colchester Standard could use next Friday!
SHAME ON YOU COLCHESTER GOLF CLUB
We had the saga of schools selling off their playing fields for quick fix hosing development and now this. A Golf Club actually considering selling off their sacrosanct Green Belt land for housing - you must be in dire financial straits to line the pockets of local housing developers and misguided homeowners.
Far better to utilise your land to expand with a second challenging 9 hole course to attract young and old new and existing members alike on the land alongside the A12/B1508 and use the land North of Achnacone Drive (practise ground) for much needed car park expansion and perhaps a new, state of the art, Clubhouse thereby freeing up Bergholt Road from the constant ever increasing daily nightmare of parked cars causing a danger to through traffic.
I can understand the Golf Clubs consternation and disappointment with the Colchester Borough Councils decision to erect hundreds of houses on their Northern and Eastern perimeters of their wonderful course but to then actually add to that disastrous scenario themselves on their Southern boundary, beggars belief!!
