Including Broadwater Golf Club in Godalming
Shrouded in controversy, it may have been – but could this be the perfect option for the redevelopment of Broadwater Park?
To this? Broadwater Park Development
The golf course at Broadwater Park is built on a former landfill site. The landfill was closed, and the golf course was built around 30 years ago. In recent years, it has become apparent that the current cap for containing the landfill is not working as it should be. Significant work will need to be completed to enable the area to continue being used for public leisure and recreation. The golf course closed in December 2018.

Now Waverley Council wants to start moving forward with planning permission on the site for a new green space that will be widely accessed and used by the local community. It wants to understand the priorities of local people who are the future users of this site.

The council carried out a £50,000 Options Appraisal two years ago on the land using external property advisors. It decided not to renew the lease with the former golf club operator, saying that it needed to maximise the financial benefit of its assets when money is tight, and government funding to councils across the country is being reduced yearly.
