LONGSHOT CHERKLEY COURT LIMITED Interested Party
THE luxurious country estate of former Daily Express owner Lord Beaverbrook is at the centre of a £60million planning battle.
Campaigners have launched a bid for a judicial review to try to stop Grade II listed Cherkley Court and its 380 acres of beautiful countryside being turned into a hotel and a golf course.
The Cherkley Campaign says planning permission was narrowly granted last year "against the strongest and clearest of recommendations to refuse by planning officers".
