Readers may wish to look at the post of Jul12 last (https://cllrkenhawkins.co.uk/2013/07/12/another-planning-aplication-shirley-golf-club/) for full details of the application by the golf club to establish a driving range, golf academy and build 57 new homes on green belt land. I have taken possession of a 166 named petition from local residents who object to the planning application and it will be presented to the Council’s planning officers.
There is still no date for the application to go before the planning committee but it is likely to be one of the October meetings. I will inform readers and residents when I hear confirmation. I have posted here my formal letter of objection: Golf Club Objection Letter . It is also worth pointing out I am not against any development – previous posts about the Local Development Plan indicate my general support for appropriate development.
Readers may also wish to view comments from people who have already objected to the proposals on-line. These can be viewed via this link: http://www.solihull.gov.uk/planning/dc/comments.asp?AppNo=2013/1126&V=1
