CUCKFIELD GOLF CENTRE: Cuckfield and Ansty & Staplefield Parish Councils have called a public meeting for Monday 20th November when the golf course’s advisor, PT-CE Ltd., Waste Management Consultants will present their proposal for re-engineering of Cuckfield golf course, using cut and fill processes and the importation of inert fill material. Particular concerns are: a) the golf course is within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), b) the estimated 55,000 lorry movements required to transport the stated 367,500 cubic metres of material to be imported (during a period yet to be advised) and c) the waste to be used, the proposal stating only that a majority of which (thus a minimum of 51%) will be “inert” waste, thus the possibility of up to 49% being “active” and “live” waste. The meeting will take place in the Village Hall, London Lane (nb, not the Queen’s Hall). It will start at 7.00pm. Further information can be found on Cuckfield Parish Council’s website: cuckfield.gov.uk
