Forest Pines Golf Course Extension, Broughton

In 2004 Forest Pines Golf Club submitted a planning application to North Lincolnshire Council to extend the golf course into Gadbury and Lundimore Woods near Broughton. The Trust objected to this application and two further planning applications to extend the golf course into the woods. Refusal of the third application by North Lincolnshire Council was appealed by the applicants and was examined by the Planning Inspectorate at a Public Inquiry. The Trust engaged in the Public Inquiry process to support the refusal of permission alongside the Woodland Trust, Friends of the Earth and the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE). The appeal was dismissed by the Inspector in the appeal decision dated 1 April 2010. The Inspector concluded 'Taking all those matters into account, I find that the loss and damage to this 'ancient woodland' is not outweighed by any need for, or benefits of, the proposed development. Hence, and having considered all the other matters raised, I find nothing sufficiently compelling to alter my conclusion that this appeal should be dismissed.'
