Ifield Golf Club Limited (IGCL) has been notified by their new landlord Homes England – a government quango – and their private Consortium partners – Welbeck, Rydon and Wates – that the “pause“ on the proposed purchase of the golf club land has been lifted, and that agreement on a revised purchase price has been agreed amongst Homes England, the Consortium and the IGCL Board – approved by its shareholders [“White Paper is what’s ‘unsound'”, WSCT Letters, Oct 8]. 

This is not good news for our community. We will have to fight even more ferociously, but legally, to protect the land we love. 

The Ifield Society calls for an Inquiry into the £3bn land deal West of Ifield by Homes England and its Consortium

partners Welbeck, Rydon and Wates – overseen by the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government.

There is deepening concern and growing anger in the community the local democratic planning process is being by-passed.

Homes England and the Consortium will never be master of what it thinks it controls, because there is something more powerful – a community and a deep sense of place of those within that community. 

Communities achieve something great when they come together, and we will come together here in Ifield and beyond – whatever the odds against us. We have a common goal, and that goal has a greater good than Homes England and the Consortium can ever muster with their power. 

What chance does the local community have against such powerful, combined forces of state and private developer? Perhaps none at all at the end of the day. 

But remember this:  the people in this community – united in common purpose – will be a combined force which these faceless profiteers and bureaucrats should never underestimate. 

We will fight on with resilience and determination as part of the greatest force of all – that of community.
