The Harriers and The Lord Stanley on opposite ends on Wanless Road can be added to this list (well, to a list of pubs round here that are no more, anyway, I don't know if you ever drank in them)

Sorry, should have said, they were entering an empty boarded up pub. It's not reopened or anything! Wonder where all the hospital staff go now?
There's a sign outside that says it's 'Temporarily Closed'. I can't see what else it says cos the print is too small to read from the bus.

The sign's been there for months. I think the notice is just an apologies to customer notice, nothing exciting or enlightening. Will have a look on Friday though if I remember

Oh, I remember. Something to the effect that all fixtures and furnishings have been removed!

Yes, but the point I was trying to make is that a temporary closure would mean it re-opening as a licenced drinking venue.

The Angel is yours for £650k if you fancy it.

It's going to be a "luxury development, situated less than a minute away from Brixton's resurgent and vibrant new shopping destination, Brixton Village," isn't it?

:(
How did I know that was going to be the sales pitch even before reading your post?
/goes to play the lottery

It says that there's a security guard on site and that all machines, stock etc. have been cleared from the premises. Any enquiries contact blah blah blah

The planning application is out for consultation with a deadline of 22nd March: 12/00598/FUL
Haven't checked the drawings yet myself, but the write-up is clear much as you predicted: "Construction of four 2 storey mews houses within the footprint of existing out buildings and the conversion of the upper floors with additional storey to the existing pub building (end terrace) to provide 9no.apartments in total comprising 4 no. 1 bedroom, 3 no. 2 bedroom and 1no. 3 bedroom units, cycle storage and private/ communal amenity space."

I just checked the Lambeth Council Planning web pages and there are no drawings. How do they expect the public to comment? I shall be down the library over the weekend to see is they've put hard copy drawings there.

I dare Ebony to park (probably wrong term) some horses there.
The idea of Ebony staging "Occupy Valentia Mews" brightened my Sunday morning.

There are no plans available at Brixton library for this planning application at the moment. Lambeth Planning don't seem to be firing on all cylinders where consulting the public is concerned.

Lambeth firing on all cylinders!!

We objected to a development that adjoins our property (and uses part of our gardens) in December, nothing has happened despite us chasing.

Last we heard, they sent us an email saying it was going to committee and they were recommending it be approved, hastily followed by an email a couple of hours later saying that was incorrect and it was still being considered.

Developers must be really pissed :cool: if all applications are taking this long.

All Lambeth Planning have managed to put on their website about the new application for the Angel pub so far is a traffic survey. HOWEVER the full plans are down at the Tate Library.

Looks like it's a Lexadon project - all the paperwork has Lex07 in the page headers.

I find the proposal OK really - but they are building up on the pub roof - which they say is OK cos other shops in the terrace have added roof extensions. Didn't have time to check this myself - presumably the view from Southwyck House would be optimal for assessing this.

The "mews" part, which seems to startle the horses, is a totally modern add-on in the manner of what you would get in such a development in Chelsea or Putney. I prefer this to mock-Victorian Barrett house style crap, but chacun à son goût.

Deadline for comments is theoretically tomorrow (22nd March). Since they are so bad at providing the plans I would have thought they have to accept late comments, if anyone is minded.
