Rolleston Golf Club Blaze 'Deliberate' According To Police Chiefs

Police are searching for an arsonist who torched an East Staffordshire golf club – causing a blaze that raged for several hours. More than 45 firefighters were called in to tackle the fire at a building in the grounds of the disused Craythorne Golf Club, in Craythorne Road, Rolleston, in the early hours of Friday 18 July. The blaze was so ferocious that crews had to pump in extra water from the brook in Rolleston (up Knowles Hill and down Beacon Road) as water pressure in the area is 'very low'.

Top Politician Set To Decide Rolleston Planning App

It has been announced that the Secretary of State for communities and local government will now decide the fate of this controversial planning appeal. Andrew Griffiths MP has received written confirmation that Eric Pickles would now have the final say on the College Fields application in Rolleston, after a four-day hearing decided to uphold East Staffordshire Borough Council’s decision to refuse the planning application. Read more in the Burton Mail article (24 March) here.

Update: The Secretary of State is not in a position to reach a decision by the previously advised date of 14 July 2014, and will now issue his decision on or before 26 August 2014.

Both the threat and the reality of large scale developments within the village and surrounding areas is never far away. Read more about it in the planning section pages.
