A championship golf course and linked 1,000 home development in listed parkland in Bolton can go ahead, housing secretary Robert Jenrick has ruled - but only if the venue is awarded the Ryder Cup.

Nevertheless, he identified a shortfall in housing supply and agreed with the applicant's assessment that the venue would have an economic benefit of up to £1.1 billion GVA (gross value added). This benefit took on "greater significance" in the context of "a local and regional area which lags behind economically and evidences higher levels of deprivation and economic inactivity", he found.
