Milton Golf Course, Milton, Cambridgeshire

About This Project

ELD was commissioned by the owner of Milton Golf Course, to provide advice and design services regarding controversial planning issues relating to ‘bund construction’; historically added to provide ‘landscape’ interest across the 18 hole golf course.

The brief called for ELD to review of the previous application for ‘bunds’; undertake detailed discussions with planners; review of bund profiles; with the need for a retrospective planning application, to include specifications to undertake soil analysis for contamination; remove concrete debris from within the mounds, re-profile them and add soil improvers to take the subsoil to a topsoil quality, to permit seeding and planting whilst avoiding mass importation of new materials. All works were to be completed whilst keeping the course open for play.
