Dealing with the Threat of HS2

September 21st, 2016

Whittington Heath Golf Club in the heart of England was faced with extinction when plans for HS2 construction revealed the new high speed railway line would bisect the course. Now, as we reveal in our story today, five new golf holes and a new club house will be constructed to reflect the equivalent re-instatement of facilities lost, with all costs being borne by HS2 on that basis. With masterly understatement, one of the Club’s officers describes the five year planning and negotiation process as a ‘difficult journey’. I bet it was. Congratulations!
