Golf course's green transformation given the go ahead
5:01pm Tuesday 1st July 2014 in News
The conversion of a golf course into a nature site has been given the green light.
Brighton and Hove City Council’s environment, transport and sustainability committee agreed this afternoon to grant a 15-year lease with a peppercorn rent to Beacon Hill Nature Reserve to transform Rottingdean Pitch and Putt course.
Friends of Beacon Hill announced they had secured £25,000 of private funding to help establish the project on the subject that they were granted a minimum lease of seven years.
The site has been empty for more than two years and was recently occupied by squatters.
