New holiday cottages could be built to help a village golf club ‘remain viable’.

Directors at Isle of Wedmore Golf Club want to build two new log cabins at the course in Lascot Hill, increasing the number on site to five.

An application submitted to Sedgemoor District Council shows the plans also include the construction of a site manager’s flat and training area.

The application’s design and access statement says: “In order for the golf club to remain viable and to keep green fees attractive to golfers, the directors of the club have found it necessary to utilise the existing space within the club house to the maximum possible with yoga, pilates, bridge clubs, keep-fit and functions, with the result that all of the available space is now used every day of the week for one or other of these activities.”

The consultation period for this application expires on February 3.
