The Council are proposing closing the 100 year old municipal course and replacing it with a regional park. The course provides an opportunity for all to enjoy the social, physical and mental wellbeing benefits that we, as golfers, know to be so important. Read the article from the Ealing News here

 

The members are working extremely hard to raise the local public awareness of the Councils proposals and the adverse impact it could have on ordinary people’s ability to access affordable golf.

 

The members case has also been given a boost by the recent report from the Brent River and Canal Society (BRCS) who have raised concerns regarding the potential increase in flooding in the area should the closure of the golf course go ahead. Perivale Golf Course is a key part of the areas flood defences and BRCS is not convinced that the Council has properly considered the impact of their proposed changes in this regard. Read more here

There appears to be growing local public opinion that the Council’s public consultation regarding the proposed closure of Perivale Park, has been biased and misleading.

 

Perivale Park members will be delivering leaflets across the borough to encourage awareness of what is at stake with the proposals and hope that as many people as possible will support their endeavours by scanning the Q code on the leaflet to take action. The NAPGC sincerely hope that Perivale’s members campaign is successful and that this popular and essential local golf course is saved and continues for another 100 years. Perivale Park Members also have a website to provide further information on their progress www.saveppgc.org
