Waverley’s bid to maximise its property assets.

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?

From this…

To this?   Broadwater Park Development

Project Background

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.

For further information on Broadwater Park,  visit www.waverley.gov.uk/BroadwaterPark(opens in new tab).

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.

Waverley wants to hear from you!

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.

Our student council members recently participated in a student engagement session with Waverley Borough Council. Our students shared their thoughts and ideas for how best to revitalize the unused area of the Broadwater golf course. As part of their community engagement project, Waverley Borough Council would love to have more of our students become involved and share their ideas. Students and parents are invited to complete the survey, which can be accessed via the QR code. #waverleyboroughcouncil #godalming


One thought on “Waverley’s bid to maximise its property assets.”

  1. Shame Waverley can’t buy the disused (But beautifully re-wilded) Wildwood Golf course and give something back to the Community…But I forget … this is Not Godalming is it?

    This is just Alfold and they are probably hoping that it can be turned into Housing to make up the deficit that the “Sleeping Dunsfold Garden Village” has created in Waverley’s 5YHS
