Former Plumstead pub sees conversion to housing under new plan

Plans have been submitted to convert a Plumstead pub on King’s Highway into two shop unit and seven flats (2×1-bed, 4×2-bed and 1×3-bed). The former Alma Tavern hasn’t operated as a pub for some years.

A previous plan in 2013 was rejected. Is there a stronger case for change now?

It follows a long line of Plumstead pubs closing. At least this plan would retain the attractive building instead of demolition.

The planning reference is 17/2597/F

Running this site takes time and costs money. I hope you enjoy it, and any help to support it continue would be much appreciated. Donations can be made at

As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.

Support me and the site via Paypal here which allows me to focus time on researching and writing posts alongside taking photographs to document changes. Adverts are far from enough to cover living costs.

I also have a Facebook page for the site here

Thank you
