A €900 million golf resort in Croatia is being delayed by bureaucratic slowness in granting planning approval, according to the developer.
The proposed Dubrovnik Golf Park is to be built on a 310 hectare site above the city, with 27 holes of golf. Greg Norman’s firm has been contracted to design the main eighteen holes. But Ivan Kusalic of Rasvoj-Golf, the development company, told the Croatian Times that planning approvals have been held up. “I would blame the very complicated bureaucratic processes for permit procedures in the Republic of Croatia. We are delayed because of very slow government and local government decision making and the fact that the two bodies often contradict each other.”.
However, Kusalic told the newspaper that his company remained committed to the project, and expected permits to be granted by next summer.
