A plan has been submitted to Greenwich Council to demolish The Pickwick pub on Woolwich Road in Charlton which recently closed. It was formally known as the Roupell Arms and a Courage pub.
Whilst not an amazing building it is one of the more characterful in the area.
The plans see 14 flats built in a replacement block, a new pub and 6 houses.
The pub is located directly opposite the recently built Sainsbury’s and Marks & Spencer superstores. If they had been developed as mixed-use developments, the pub site would have seen far more custom and stood a greater chance of survival. As it is, it’s opposite vast retail parks.
It’s the latest in a flurry of plans to demolish pubs in the area as well as Greenwich.
The planning reference is 18/2976/O
