Potential expansion of resort with more homes

A bid to build 14 detached executive homes on land next to Burgham Park Golf and Leisure Club, near Felton, is set to get the green light.

The site is located immediately to the west of a group of 10 low-density executive houses at Burgham Park, with a further 10 properties to the east of these, and to the north-west of the golf course clubhouse.

A development of holiday lodges, known as Northumbrian Hills, is currently under construction to the west of the site.

The planning permission would be subject to the completion of an agreement to secure all proceeds from the sale/development of the land being invested into the ongoing development of the golf resort and any surplus revenue generated being provided as a contribution towards off-site affordable-housing provision.

The scheme sparked 11 letters of objection on grounds such as visual impact and the increase in the number of properties in the area, but also 22 letters of support.

Planning officers have recommended approval and it will be determined at a planning meeting this evening in Alnwick.
