Brookman's Park Golf Club
DLA Town Planning was approached by the Golf Club about a piece of land at the edge of the golf course that was surplus to requirements. The site was in the Green Belt and had no immediate development potential. However, we promoted the site through a “Call for Sites” run by Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council as part of their emerging Local Plan.
Following an assessment of the site, the Council now proposes to remove the site from the Green Belt as a housing allocation in the emerging Local Plan. Although promoting a site through a Local Plan can be long-winded process, it is often the only way to realise a site’s true development potential, particularly sites in the Green Belt.
