Plans in to demolish Charlton Liberal Club and build flats on site

An application has been submitted to demolish Charlton Liberal Club.

In March this year I covered how the building had been sold for £500,000.

Current building

Eight flats are proposed for the site. Any development below 10 units does not need to provide any “affordable” homes.

The Liberal club closed in 2018 and was popular with football fans. Another Charlton watering hole, the White Swan, closed its doors in March 2020.

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.

Another option is via my Patreon account by clicking here

I also have a Facebook page for the site here

Thank you

I've lived in south east London most of my life growing up in Greenwich borough and working in the area for many years. The site has contributors on occasion and we cover many different topics. Living and working in the area offers an insight into what is happening locally.

    It’s a monstrosity of a building, how can royal Greenwich allow balconies on these building in street of traditional buildings ?

      They haven’t. It’s an application and not yet approved.

    I would have liked to have seen this development more in keeping with the neighbouring properties. I do however, welcome the new homes.

    The new buildings look better than what they are replacing, but the ‘design’ is not exactly groundbreaking.

    I consider Charlton one of the least valued villages in London but with a lot of potential and above all Charlton Church Lane a street with many valuable buildings (including blue plaques) with facades that harmoniously blend together. Although some buildings need renovation (shops in the vicinity of Nadine Road) as a whole they are an asset that must be safeguarded and enhanced.
    With extreme pleasure I accepted the rejection of the development proposed by Rockwell for Charlton Riverside judged a “Stalingrad” in order not to make this area one of the many with anonymous developments born already old.
    With these premises I think that the development proposed to replace the Liberal Club is again a “small stalingrad”: completely out of the urban context, poor both in the lines and in the materials used without any landscape but above all devoid of character and demeaning of the valuable architectural context of the street
