RESIDENTS have until the end of the month to put forward their views on plans to build six homes on the site of a former Chester golf club.

Developers want feedback from members of the public before lodging a planning application for the old Mollington Golf Club, which closed more than four years ago.

Harworth Group launched its public consultation last week and is inviting residents to have their say on the proposed development, entitled The Green, by July 31.

The plans include:

  • Six homes (2x four bed and 4x five-bed) set around a shared courtyard
  • Demolition of the former clubhouse and greenkeepers building which will be restored back to grassland
  • Enhanced public footpaths and cycle paths to connect Townfield Lane into the existing network and link the site to the Countess of Chester Health Park
  • Extensive new landscaped areas and ecological enhancement as well as retained existing vegetation
  • A car park adjoining the residential development to allow local residents and members of the community not within walking distance of the site to park and access the walking and cycling routes

Chester and District Standard:

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the developers are unable to hold a face-to-face public consultation event but are inviting residents to fill in an online survey or email their views directly.

Planning consultants Avison Young have created a website detailing the proposals on behalf of Harworth Group.

It states: "The consultation boards present an introduction to the scheme, a description of what currently exists on site, details of the potential development options, the key benefits for redeveloping the site and landscape and heritage considerations.

"Your views are important to help us develop our final scheme and are very much appreciated.

"The proposals represent an opportunity to transform the derelict site to provide 6no. high quality homes, which have been sensitively designed to reduce the visual impact on the countryside and maximise the recreational benefit of the wider site.

"If you have any questions, please contact Rachel May ( We would request any feedback before the deadline of 31st July 2020."
