Hall Lane Pitch & Putt – Opening Times

As part of the campaign to prevent the sale and redevelopment of the Hall Lane Pitch and Putt site it is important that it is seen to be used by local people and visitors. It has a full 18-hole mini golf course perfect for experienced golfers to practice their pitching and putting, for budding golfers to learn the game in an informal setting, or as an affordable and fun activity for all the family. There’s also a crazy golf course for younger children.

The Pitch and Putt is now open from 10am-5pm every weekend and school holidays April to October (weather dependent). Please give it a go and show that we really care about this important local venue.

  1. Why isn’t in open in the week after school just went all the way there after school and it’s closed?

    • Dear Paul,

      The reason for this is the lack of likely usage during the week outside of school holidays, compared to the cost of employing someone to staff it. Similarly, opening it for short periods, such as after school, would not be economically viable.

      Kind regards

  2. I see in the Latest Legal & Public Notices issued on 5 July 2019 that:-

    Local Government Act – Appropriation of Land at Hall Lane, Upminster, Essex
    “the London Borough of Havering have given notice that it intends to appropriate land held for recreational purposes which consists of an open space to planning purposes having an approximate area of 8.5 acres at Hall Lane, Upminster comprising Hall lane Pitch & Putt Course”.

    Followed by-
    Town & Country Planning Act-Disposal of Land at Hall Lane, Upminster, Essex
    “The London Borough of Havering intends, following it’s appropriation to planning purposes, to dispose of land having an approximate area of 8.5 acres at Hall Lane, Upminster comprising Hall lane Pitch & Putt Course, which consists or forms part of an open space”.

    So it looks like the fate of this lovely pitch & putt course has finally been sealed.

  3. Dear Dave,

    Please see our post from the 6th July https://www.ucra.co.uk/appropriation-disposal-of-hall-lane-mini-golf-course/ . The Public Notices are separate from the planning application and were always going to happen. They make the final outcome no more or less likely. However, it is important for people to object to both the ‘appropriation’ and ‘disposal’.

    Kind regards

    Cllr John Tyler
