    The Grosvenor as we know it may well have disappeared for good, but there's still a chance that the building could reopen as a pub if Golfrate's plans to build luxury flats above is stopped in its tracks.


    Lambeth turned them down last year and now they're back with an identical proposal - and there's only two days left to object.

    Read the full story here and lodge your comments on the Lambeth planning website. There was just four objections when I posted up the Buzz story but I've facebooked/Tweeted to fuck and it's up to 25 now. Please add your own objection if you'd like this pub to live on.

    This is back again. Just received this email from Lambeth because I commented on the above.

Erection of a single storey ground floor rear infill extension to the public house and installation of a roof cover over the existing rear yard.

    I got this too.

    What does "Pending Section 106 Obligation" mean?

    Does it mean this will be approved if the developer pays some Section 106 cash?

    Yes, but that can either be local amenities (transport, infrastructure, schools etc.) but more likely a chunk of 106 funds to Lambeth's general coffers to use as they want.

    106 is to blame for all the unwanted planning deals in Lambeth IMO.

    They've been turned down again. Ha haaa!

    If only they could make those cunts put back the interior they so gleefully trashed...

    Good news. The interesting thing about this one is the planning committee said the development could harm the viability of the pub on the ground floor, which I've never heard before. Apparently this is contrary to the local plan. It didn't stop other similar developments which left empty pubs on the ground floor however (such as the Loughborough Hotel, The Russell Hotel, the Plough, Paulet Arms etc) - so is this a new thing?
