Controversial plans to build a golf course on a “beautiful” patch of land have been resubmitted.

The proposals could see an 18-hole golf course and clubhouse built on the site of Bury Farm, in Edgwarebury Lane, Edgware.

Similar plans for the site were withdrawn last year after fierce opposition. 

Opponents of the golf course have described the land as the “lungs of Edgware”. 

Broadfields Estate Residents’ Association vice chairman Ralph Simon previously told the Times Series: “It’s one of our best assets and it would be a real shame to lose it. I don’t want this to be the end of our farm - it’s a beautiful, picturesque and peaceful patch of greenbelt land.”

The plans have been resubmitted by Tony Menai-Davis, who owns The Shire golf club in Barnet.

Mr Menai-Jones previously told the Times Series he feels those opposed to the plans have “misrepresented” the facts.

He added: “People want to play on top quality courses, which we can offer here. Business at The Shire is fantastic and I know this is a well-wanted, well-needed course.”
