Save the former Western Golf Course
Public consultation on the former Golf Course starts in November 2022
Leicester City Council have given notice that the final public consultation concerning the future of the former Western Golf Course will commence mid November 2022. It will be open for 6 weeks.
As a reminder, the City's plans are for 50 acres of employment buildings, 466 homes and seven permanent Gypsy Traveller pitches. Further development of the Blaby section of the course is also a possibility.
Could all of you that are interested in objecting to yet another huge development on Glenfield's doorstep, please join Western Golf Course Area - Action Group on Facebook. The consultation will be on the City's planning website and will allow for online or posted objections. More details to follow when available.
Editor‘s Note: If you live locally, but have not yet visited the Former Western Golf Course, I urge you to do so, to see for yourself what we risk losing.
You can access the area at various points in Glenfield, including Blackthorn Road, Slate Walk Way, Somerset Drive or via Optimus Point (alongside Gearys Bakery).
If you are unable to visit in person, you can take a virtual walk around the Golf Course online. Visit: https://youtu.be/VuwriKRth0U to experience a superb low-level drone video created by Alan Rampton Photography.
