Closure of Deangate
Cabinet Meeting 28 March at Medway Council offices
The Cabinet discussed the closure of the golf course again and then voted. Every member of the Cabinet voted to close Deangate Ridge Golf Course except Councillor Phil Filmer (Con), who has been a great supporter to the "Save Deangate Ridge" campaign.
It was confirmed that Deangate will close its doors on 14 April 2018. However, Alan Jarrett announced the submission of an external provider taking over and promised to talk to external providers without demolishing or dismantling any of the assets.
So all in all not what we would have liked but they have left the door half open.
