Stevie H can feck off and watch whippet racing but he does have a point about hijacking a really  good thread, so ......

 

Why? Probably just spite and resentment because of the stereotypical golfer and I get that from your perspective  but think about why you say that? A golf club without the 18 flags remains proper greenbelt, often in the middle of town with locals walking their dogs not to mention the recreational aspect.

I'd far rather they demolished golf courses for this sort of thing than proper green belt/countryside.

 

Why? 

 

EDIT: Just read Murph's post. Specifically, why? Other than sheer spite? What is "proper greenbelt" exactly? Does it include invasive species? What is this greenbelt used for? Property rights are irrelevant?


 

 

The council have been told to build more houses. I believe they have a short lease and the council are the freeholders. The entrance is a few hundred yards from the station and Crossrail comes in in 2018. They're a sitting duck by the look of it but I hope they find a way out.

Still, it's their land and their lease. Unfortunately, there isn't much to be done about it. I'm all for property rights and at the end of the day it is their property.

 

How on earth did they get such a short term lease? Was it an extension of a much longer previous one?

shut the f*** up about golf man for f***'s sake. same pricks who play that stupid game are them who readily say 'britain is full' when it's been proven golf courses alone take up more actual space than the entirety of housing in the UK. more UK area is used for golf courses than houses. think about that. so turn golf courses into housing estates. christ i f***ing hate golf. also this is a US president thread, so have you watched the film 'you've been trumped?'. if not, watch it and f*** off.

I play golf.

 

There are more than enough courses, most of which are only accessible to a tiny minority of the population. I'm happier losing them than countryside that (a) offers free access to all and (b) isn't artificially manicured and maintained to an extent that it might as well be spray-painted green, such is its environmental credentials

 

If people can walk their dogs on them then presumably they incorporate public rights of way which will still be there once houses have been built.

 

There are loads of reasons other than 'sheer spite' to prefer using a golf course as land for housing - especially if it is affordable housing - rather than other green land. it is a bit mad to be honest that you and your mate don't get that.

 

NYR - did you care about the property rights of the people who had their homes in Anfield compulsory purchased? Or do such things only matter when they suit you?

 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There are plenty of public courses and private members clubs are much more accessible nowadays, most clubs aren't full, the whole game has changed. I'd rather not build on greenbelt at all to be honest but I accept it's not possible. I'd sooner lose a couple of big fields than lose a golf course, the impact on people is vastly different, that said each case on it's merits.

 

Your houses near the ground analogy is relevant and had the owners been compensated properly it would be a win, win for all.. There is a point a member of a golf club would walk away happily, same principle applies but I wouldn't make any other comparison.
