New golf course plans for Renishaw


DEVELOPERS are holding a public consultation and an exhibition to explain plans to build a new golf course in Renishaw.

Ash Renishaw Ltd has been granted planning permission to build the golf course on former railway land south of Station Road, close to the Sitwell Arms Hotel.

The company removed ash and ballast from the northern site and replaced it with imported construction wastes and Ash Renishaw is now applying to Derbyshire County Council to remove ash and ballast from phase two and rebuild ground levels.

An Ash Renishaw Ltd spokesman said: “Operations will be conducted in such a way as to minimise environmental impacts especially noise, dust and odour.”

A parallel planning application will also be submitted to set up to clean contaminated soils before the landscaping is carried out.

If planning permission is granted 40,000 tonnes of ash and ballast will be excavated and removed off site and 75,000 tonnes of wastes will be brought in and around 15,000 tonnes will be exported for reuse.

Lorry movements will take place to and from the M1 motorway along the A6135 road with operational hours from 7am to 6pm on weekdays and 7am to 1pm on Saturdays.

Ash Renishaw is hosting its public exhibition from 6pm to 8pm, at The Sitwell Arms, on Station Road, Renishaw, on Thursday, January 19, and comments are welcome.

A public consultation welcoming comments will also run until January 25 and those wishing to raise issues can contact Ash Renishaw planning agents Land and Development Practice on (01937) 588833. For more information see
