Upminster Mini Golf – Proposed disposal of the site

Upminster and Cranham Residents’ Association’s (UCRA) councillors have received notification of the proposed disposal of the land at Hall Lane Mini Golf course. The report will be going to Havering Council’s Cabinet on 16 September 2020.

Consent to dispose of the land is the next stage in the Council Administration’s process to build houses on the site. This follows July’s decision by the Strategic Planning Committee to grant outline planning permission to build 37 houses.

The link below will take you to the the council web page where the report will be published, although as of the date of this post (21 August 2020), it is showing ‘Document to follow’ – Disposal of land at Hall Lane Pitch and Putt.

If permissible, it is likely that UCRA councillors will call in the decision to go before the Overview & Scrutiny Board. We will update you further as we go forward.

  1. Is there a body or group of people trying to stop this? Can you please give me details if there is someone please.
    Please note that today’s Mail on Sunday has a report on ‘Save OUR Parks’ where the Communities Secretary and the Prime minister is in favour of this as well as the Mayor of London. Has a lawyer gone over the covenant and was it to the people of Upminster or Havering (which was not in place at the time).

  2. Dear Angus,

    The Upminster and Cranham Residents’ Association, together with local residents, have been fighting these proposals since they were first put forward in early 2019. This has included obtaining professional advice on the matter and asking the relevant Secretary of State to intervene, which he declined.

    Please see the previous posts on our website for further details.

    Cllr John Tyler
