Yes, today we bring you details of how to contact the company  that claims to construct beautiful golf courses like this  and this  but actually created this  at our Beacon Park Golf Course and this mountain of landfill at the so-called Beacon Park foot-golf course as the driving range  was destroyed for this  landfill. 

“CONTACT US JONATHAN SNELLGROVE We are golf course contractors that use income from soil recovery to fund clients projects”. Soil recovery? This  is soil?

And this is their published picture “under construction” of the royalty led mountainous Beacon Park foot-golf facility.  As minuted at WLBC Corporate & Environmental Overview & Scrutiny Committee 2012/13 “The arrangements previously negotiated by DCT for the land drainage work with Oaklands leisure provided an opportunity to improve facilities, retain or increase future membership and increase income. Serco have now concluded their discussions with Oaklands Leisure and have been able to project a positive financial position in future years”.

OAKLAND GOLF AND LEISURE…partners of Serco Leisure Operating Limited, now under notice of a “Breach of Condition”.

  1. Absolutely disgraceful state of affairs!! This must be the worst job ever undertaken. I blame the council as well for not keeping a better eye on what was going on!! It’s just a joke and someone has made a lot of money from it . I for one would like to know where all the money has gone!!! When are we going to get it put back to how it was supposed to be??

    • It IS disgraceful, and an appalling job that reflects badly on the Council. Various estimates of what money has been made from the “royalties” are 23,375 lorry loads of landfill @ a minimum of £50 = £1,168,750 but people in the know on landfill believe it was at least £80 (£1,870,000) and possibly £100 (£2,375,000). The money went via Oakland Golf & Leisure Ltd/Serco Leisure Services Ltd/West Lancashire Community Leisure Trust, but it all remains hidden under restricted Freedom of Information s47. It may interest you to know that “Delegation was approved by Cabinet and Council for the Assistant Director Community Services, in consultation with the Leader and relevant portfolio holder, to enter into and conclude all arrangements for the long-term management arrangements for the golf course. The arrangements previously negotiated by DCT for the land drainage work with Oaklands leisure [Oakland Golf and Leisure Ltd] provided an opportunity to improve facilities, retain or increase future membership and increase income”. DCT Ltd was dissolved after non payment of its VAT to HMRC. I will be informing the public of later developments in due course, and Rosie Cooper MP is arranging to meet directors of Serco about the breach of planning.
