Northumberland Estates has lodged the outline bid for four and five-bedroom properties on land currently used for the clubhouse and car park, which are accessed from Hope House Lane.

The access would be reconfigured as part of the scheme and a new pedestrian access would connect to the footpath on Hope House Lane.

It will involve the removal of a section of the boundary stone wall and a section of the woodland.

Alongside this application, the Estates has also submitted proposals for a new clubhouse and car park on land next to Greensfield Farmhouse, which was recently granted planning permission for three new dwellings.

Vehicular access to this new site would be via the under-construction Willowburn Park housing estate, which in turn is accessed by the newly-built Taylor Drive, which connects the new high school to Willowburn Avenue.

The proposed new clubhouse is also bounded by the golf course to the west and Greensfield Farm Steading to the south, which also has planning permission for 12 new homes.
