Potential Sale of Old Course Land - West of Driving Range
Update 1st August 2018

As you may be aware the East Herts Structure Plan has recently been endorsed by the Planning Inspector and is now awaiting adoption by East Herts Council, which is likely to occur in September 2018.

Our 5.3-acre ‘Old Course Land Site’ which is known as ‘BISH9 East of Manor Links’ in the Plan, has been included as developable land suitable for 50 houses.

As has been previously reported the Weston Homes option on the land has now expired and following adoption we intend to start a competitive tendering process for the sale of the site.

The initiative will be led by the Land Committee, which reports to the Board. The members of the Committee are: - Jonathan Walters (Chairman), Colin Hart, Frank Morse, Gary Griffiths, Aidan Ryan & Mike Southgate.

This is an experienced team with a wide range of land, development and property skills. In addition, we have employed Bidwell’s Property Consultants to support us throughout the process.

The timetable for the sale has yet to be finalised but may take up to 2 years dependent on the types of bids received and the planning process.

Some risks do exist related to future market conditions and the uncertain economic outlook, which we will scope out and communicate as we move forward.

Overall, it’s great news that we are nearing a point that we can start the sale process which will hopefully generate the funding required to support our long term development plans.

If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact me on Mike.Southgatebsgc@gmail.com or Jonathan Walters on jpw@hunting-gate.co.uk

Further updates will be issued as we move forward.

Mike Southgate – Chairman BSGC Jonathan Walters – Land Committee Chair
