Objectors to plans to redevelop Little Hay Golf Course will meet with those behind the project tonight.

Concerned householders from Bourne End are meeting with golf course operators and developers at The Watermill Hotel in London Road, Bourne End, from 6.30pm.

The Gazette had planned to attend but has since been informed that it is not open to members of the press, despite golf course operators Dacorum Sports Trust saying they would be happy for journalists to cover the meeting.

People living close to the Bovingdon golf course are worried about plans to bring in tonnes of recovered waste to create the new landscape, the proposed use of Bourne End Lane by construction trucks during the works and also the chopping down of trees.

The trust has previously assured that the use of recovered material will be in line with legislation and will contribute to national recycling targets.

It also said that new trees will be planted and new wildlife habitats created including woodland, wildflower meadows, wetland and open ditches.
