There seems to be general agreement that England needs to build more homes but not much agreement upon where that building should be.

In a letter to the Editor of ‘The Daily Telegraph’ a reader makes this suggestion:


There are large areas not in use for housing, food production or industry. They are environmentally barren, mediocre aesthetically, free of wildlife, dogs, children’s play areas or opportunities for healthy strenuous exercise. Few people can be seen on these areas at any one time.

If ‘green belt’ must be built on, surely golf courses should be the only sites under consideration.

Yours etc

Ouch! Clearly not everyone is convinced about golf’s role in protecting the environment, creating wildlife habitat and providing healthy exercise. Still a bit of work to do, then…..
