Tucker, GA — The development of Heritage Golf Links is in limbo after Lennar Homes withdrew its application to build hundreds of housing units on land spanning both DeKalb and Gwinnett County. Heritage Golf Links is a 27-hole golf course near Britt Road and Norcross Tucker Road.

Tucker Development of Planning and Zoning Courtney Smith confirmed Lennar’s withdrawal.

In an email, Smith wrote, “After speaking with Lennar and their representatives pertaining to the recent inactivity of their rezoning application, they have decided to withdraw. This can be done administratively as the case has not been advertised. Please note that there is no minimum time period in which they or another developer would have to wait before submitting/resubmitting an application.”

Attorney Jeff Haymore confirmed in an email, “Lennar applications in both Tucker and Gwinnett have been withdrawn. At this time, we don’t have any further comment.”

Gwinnett County Commissioner Ben Ku spoke with Lennar last week, according to neighborhood group Good Growth Gwinnett, whose mission is “to stop high density, low-quality development in our community of neighborhoods in unincorporated Gwinnett County that surround Heritage Golf Links.” Lennar is still under contract on the land, and is expected to reach out to residents for more input followed by submission of a new plan.
