Breaking News – Planning application for Hall Lane Mini Golf site!

We have just received the news that Havering Council’s own housing company, Mercury Land Holdings Ltd, has submitted a planning application to develop 48 homes on Upminster’s Miniature Golf Course in Hall Lane. Application P0248.19 is an outline planning application for the demolition of all current buildings and structures and redevelopment of the site to provide up to 48 houses and flats, including an access road.

This is devastating news for the area and your Residents’ Association will be delivering leaflets to notify residents of the proposal. We will also be holding a public meeting in the near future (date/venue to be advised) to discuss the application in more detail and gain residents views.

Full application details can be found by clicking on the link P0248.19

  1. Disappointed that we are losing even more recreational space that always made Upminster so special.

  2. Good to see some much-needed housing going in, just a shame it’s lots of 3-5 bedroom housing, hardly affordable and hardly an example of sustainable development as will undoubtedly add yet more cars onto roads. Electric charging points? Solar panels? Nope. Just another copy-paste housing development.
    Perhaps if the residents association spent more time arguing for good housing or good development instead of nimbyism we’d have something better and fit for the future.
    Time to reform the planning system for common good not profit.

  3. Dear Mr Butler,

    Thank you for your comments.

    If you look into it, you will find that RA councillors do argue for good quality, sustainable housing in Havering, but that should be achievable without destroying beautiful green areas such as this, that, once lost, cannot be replaced.

    Cllr John Tyler
