Marlbrook Tip in Worcestershire may become golf course
Golf clubs
Builder's waste is now being sent to another site at Belbroughton.

A landfill site in Worcestershire that is almost full is to be landscaped, and may become a golf course.

Marlbrook Tip, near Bromsgrove, has been used by building firms to dump waste.

Councillor Jill Dyer, Portfolio-holder for Planning and Regeneration on Bromsgrove District Council, said:

"Thanks to the Council working closely with the owners of the site the only other dumping at this facility will be for final landscaping purposes."

The council says the 370,000 cubic metres of space at the site has almost all been used, and that the remaining space will be used for top soil and grass.

They say the work should be complete by the summer of 2011, and that the owner plans to create a golf course on the site.
