Risebridge Golf Course

EDM number 1237 in 2007-08, proposed by Andrew Rosindell on 19/03/2008.
Categorised under the topics of Environmental protection, Industry and Waste management.

That this House expresses its dismay at the developments that have taken place at Risebridge Golf Course in Romford where, under the guise of landscaping improvements, developers have been granted permission to deposit thousands of cubic metres worth of landfill waste onto Green Belt land; is concerned that this practice is now becoming a nationwide problem and calls on the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs and the Environment Agency to investigate fully this environmental disaster and similar instances of its kind; urges the Government to withdraw waste licences pending an inquiry into the activities of these developers; and recommends that the exemption of landfill tax for the improvement of golf courses, which encourages these highly profitable activities, be suspended until all matters relating to this issue are thoroughly examined and investigated.

This motion has been signed by a total of 23 MPs, 1 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
