Argument breaks out at Bray Parish Council meeting over sale of Maidenhead golf course

Tensions rose during Bray Parish Council as members began to discuss The Advertiser’s front page story about a deal to turn Maidenhead Golf Club into housing.

Last week we reported the golf club will receive £12m to give up the lease within seven years.

During the debate about Braywick Court School’s expansion plans Cllr Ken Elvin (Ind, Bray) said: “With the golf club having been taken over for housing, I guess we will need more school places.”

He was interrupted by Cllr Derek Wilson (Ind, Holyport) who said: “Before you say any more on this matter, there is a non disclosure agreement, and no discussion can take place at this moment in time.”

He was then interrupted by Cllr Chris Graham (Ind, Bray) who pointed out that no agreement had been signed by the parish council. He said: “We have not signed a non-disclosure agreement, that is between RBWM and the golf club, we are quite at liberty to discuss what is in the public domain.”

Cllr Derek Wilson said: “You may want to voice an opinion but there is a non disclosure agreement so no discussion should take place.”

A small argument then broke out before the discussion returned to Braywick Court School.
