Application for 92 homes at Blyth Golf Club has been submitted


Bot

A bid for almost 100 new homes on part of the existing course has been lodged to prevent Blyth Golf Club from folding this year.

Bellway Homes has submitted the application to Northumberland County Council , seeking to build 92 houses at the Newsham facility, off Plessey Road.

The proposals would involve the demolition of some outbuildings with the new homes to be built on the site of the 10th and 11th holes, while the clubhouse would be renovated, new outbuildings would be put up, including a Halfway House, and there would be alterations to the course.

The plans are for 24 two-bedroom homes, 41 three-bedroom houses and 27 four-bedroom properties, of which eight would be for social rent and six for sale at discount market value.

A planning statement, by consultants Lichfields, concludes: 'The golf club is in a poor financial position and without any measures to address this, it is likely that the club would be forced to close in 2019 given the current overdraft position with the bank who are providing crucial financial support.

'The proposed development would provide the funds required to improve the golf course and the clubhouse, thereby securing the future of the club.'
