Plymouth housing proposal spells end of movie studio dream

PLYMOUTH — The owner of the Waverly Oaks Golf Club, once the target site for a huge movie-studio complex, has submitted a plan to build 113 single-family homes on the property.

Mark Ridder says he would build the subdivision clustered on 44 acres of the 242-acre property on Long Pond Road. The proposed development would wipe out the club’s nine-hole executive course but leave the main 18-hole course intact. More significantly to those still hoping to bring movie production to the area, the housing would spell the end of the Plymouth Rock Studios project, proposed amid great fanfare in 2008.
