An application to build 57 houses on green belt land off Creynolds Lane has been on-going for two years now. The applicants cite special material considerations that they need to build house on green belt land they own (currently farm land) to pay for a golf academy and floodlight golf driving range. Their formal planning application (no. 2013/1126) can be found via this link: http://ww2.solihull.gov.uk/planning_new/dc/ViewApp.asp
I have objected to the application, even successfully writing to the applicants in 2011 to withdraw that application, and have posted my formal letter of objection here: Golf Club objection
The application is likely to come before planning committee in June. My pre-determination means I will not take part in that part of the meeting as a committee member.
