Developers apply to demolish Northfield golf club house after September arson attack

1

Developers have applied to Birmingham City Council for permission to demolish the club house building on the site of a former Northfield golf club.

A controversial planning application to build 950 homes on the site was refused by city planners in August. Just 3 weeks later, the former club house was targeted by arsonists, destroying the roof and around 30% of the top floor of the building.

It is expected that the club and developers will appeal to the government’s planning directorate against the council’s decision not to allow a housing development at the site.

Comments on the demolition request can be left until 1st December: visit Birmingham City Council’s planning pages, application reference 2017/09672/PA
