JCB has been given the go-ahead to start work on its new state-of-the-art golf course.

East Staffordshire Borough Council's planning committee unanimously gave the green light to the plan at a meeting last week.

Now landscaping work could begin as early as the autumn and JCB is aiming for the first players to tee off in 2018.

Permission for the 18-hole course was given despite an objection from a neighbouring homeowner fearing work on the course would damage his underground septic tank and the fact ancient woodland would have to be destroyed.
