Golf Course Update

We have received an update from Savills on the status of the approval for Hertford Golf Course.

A copy of the letter is provided here:


On behalf of Belview Golf Ltd I have been instructed to write to provide you with an update on the above site. You will recall that they provided a similar update this time last year.

The current approval for the Hertford Golf Course was granted planning permission on 14 May 2019, subject to 18 planning conditions. Of these conditions, eight required that further information was provided to East Hertfordshire District Council prior to the commencement of development.

These eight conditions required further information on matters relating to materials to be used in the construction of the clubhouse and driving range, soft and hard landscaping details, sustainable urban drainage details and landscape and ecological management details. In view of the technical expertise required to prepare the information for some of these conditions, it has taken a little time following the grant of planning permission to prepare the information necessary to discharge these conditions.

The discharge of condition application was submitted to East Hertfordshire District Council on 3 June 2020. The Planning Officer has had to liaise with various consultees. We have been informed by the Planning Officer that the information submitted in relation to seven of the pre-commencement conditions is acceptable. The remaining condition is still awaiting final comments from Hertfordshire County Council who are a consultee, which we anticipate will be received shortly confirming the information submitted with this condition is satisfactory.

Once these conditions have been formally discharged by East Hertfordshire District Council, it is the intention of Belview Golf Ltd to implement this planning permission without delay, adhering of course to the mitigation and safeguards that the conditions require.

I hope this letter provides the Parish Council and the community with the reassurance that the golf course remains on track and work hopefully will be starting on site as soon as the conditions are discharged. My contact details including telephone number can be found above if you happen to have any follow up questions.


Yours sincerely,
Richard Mears MRTPI
