Golf course's green transformation given the go ahead

First published 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.

Can't see much conversion is required. Just don't mow it.
