Planning permission was originally granted 16 January 1996 (reference: 5/95/30866/017/C) for the change of use and conversion of existing barns to a golf clubhouse. One of the eastern barns accommodates usual clubhouse facilities and the western barn to accommodate leisure facilities (indoor golf practice bays, badminton courts, swimming pool, teaching room, artificial putting green and greenkeeper facilities).

The works in respect of the eastern barn were completed and the consent in respect of the western barn is therefore saved.

Planning permission was subsequently gained on appeal 26 October 1999 (Ref APP01755/A/99/1017789) to change the use of the consented (western) barn to a 67 bedroom hotel with managers flat, swimming pool and gym facilities.

Borough of Poole confirmed by way of their letter dated 28/04/11 that in the opinion of the planning officer, there is sufficient evidence to establish commencement of development in accordance with the consent on this basis, the consent remains extant.

The property is considered to have potential for a range of uses subject to necessary consents.
