Proposals have been drawn up to build holiday lodges on part of a former golf club in Armitage.

The golf course in Armitage

Developers hope to put 10 properties on the fairway of the 10th hole at the Hawkesyard Estate.

The plans would also see other facilities linked to the course – which closed in 2017 – being repurposed.

“Part of the existing golf club car park with 17 spaces is proposed to be reused to provide parking for the proposal.

“The buggy store will be made into an office reception area.

“The area proposed for the stationing of the holiday lodges is set to the east of the former golf course clubhouse and was previously part of the course, comprising the 10th hole and fairway.”

Full details of the proposals can be seen on Lichfield District Council’s planning website.

The development of the power station site is adding to the “local” economy this is Not. This can only serve the landowner. The nursing home will be affected With large Wedding groups late at night gathering Outside the nursing and care home. 10 lodges look like they could house up to 100 guests. Imagine how that will be for vulnerable residents at the nursing home.
