Plans have been submitted again to demolish the former Thames Inn pub in Greenwich.
This plan differs in that they’ve added a couple more floors on top taking it to seven storeys high.
The Thames Inn is a characterful building and one of the last Victorian buildings in the area. It’s located beside the near-1000 home New Capital Quay development.
The initial application to demolish the pub was refused by Greenwich Council and rejected on appeal. A second attempt was withdrawn after advice from planning officers.
The developers are Cobalt Equity Management. Rather than restore the pub and incorporate housing through extensions they are sticking with wholesale demolition.
On the face of it, it seems an ideal spot for a pub. Located in the midst of thousands of new homes, near tourist sites AND many students living in halls of residence, many pubs would love such a spot.
