Locals urged to voice golf plan views

The Courier, 2 April 1999

In the wake of the latest hotel, conference and golf course development to be proposed for the outskirts of St Andrews, at Feddinch - which is rumoured to be a £300 million package - Tory prospective MSP candidate or North-East Fife Ted Brocklebank has urged local people to make their voices heard.

He also criticised Fife Council’s decision to call-in current and future applications for golfing developments in and around St Andrews, saying it was an attempt to “railroad decisions through on political grounds.”

The move will result in local Liberal Democrat councillors, with controlling power on the east area development committee, not having the final say on the range of controversial applications in their own area.

Instead they will be considered by the Labour dominated strategic development committee of councillors from all over Fife.

Mr Brocklebank said it was vital that the people of St Andrews and the communities of the East Neuk which are facing similar developments make their views known.
