Hall Lane Mini Golf Course – Council’s Cabinet decision to dispose of land
Last night (13th March), Havering Council’s Conservative run Cabinet approved in principle the disposal of the Hall Lane Mini Golf Course. Full details of the Cabinet’s decision can be found on the Council’s website, but a summary is printed below. Residents’ Association councillors will call this decision in for further scrutiny and attempt to get it reversed.
It should be noted that the Cabinet’s decision should have little effect on the planning application itself, which we will continue to fight.
Don’t forget that you still have time to send your comments and objections into the Planning Department. The closing date is 22nd March. A link to the planning application, where you can view the documents and submit comments, is here. A link to the Local Development Plan 2016-2031 is here.
