Description: 18 new residential flats and 1 Class E commercial unit in a vacant former public house and new rear extension
Client: Gateway Realty Limited
Architect: Formation Architects
This live application follows from our successful appeal pertaining to a residential-only rear extension to the existing vacant former public house (Grade II-listed). The proposal would involve conversion of some of the exisitng public house floorspace into residenital use. This change of use would involve internal works to the existing Grade II-listed building. To evidence the acceptabiltiy of the internal works, limited soft strip-out of the interiors of the listed building were needed. These inital works, in turn, required their own listed building consent. Centro worked carefully with the appointed heritage expert and heritage officers at Merton Council to establish a planning strategy which would give officers the necessary comfort prior to determination that key historic features could be retained. Determination is anticipated in the second half of 2023.
