In the past few days we’ve had several comments ,emails and phone calls about the lorries transporting earth to Lords Golf Club.
We contacted the District Council about this as soon we were alerted.
They advised that the golf club say the works are in response to a request from their members for a putting green to the rear of the club house. The works required a few lorry loads of topsoil delivered at the 11th Fairway opposite Lubbards Farm. This is a service access where sand and loams are already delivered from time to time and adjoins the water company access and the footpath. The soil is being dumped by their own equipment as they require so as not to rut the greens.
The works should already have been completed, but were obviously still going on today. One resident estimated 20 lorries went past in 2 hours this morning, and Chris saw one just before midday. It’s already been pointed out to us that it must be a pretty big putting green….
We have emailed the planning department again!
Thanks again for everyone’s information on this one.
