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


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
