Eltham pub expansion fallen through?

It looks as though plans to expand the Rusty Bucket pub in Eltham have fallen through.

Back in February a planning application went in to expand the pub into an adjoining unit. That was actually approved just two days ago – but of course much has changed since the application.

An email alert this week revealed the unit is now up for rent again. They are asking for rent of £18,500 a year. A tad optimistic in the current climate? Then again, not as bad as £75,000 being asked for a shop unit in Camberwell at the base of a new-build.

Running a site alone takes time and a fair bit of money. Adverts are far from enough to cover it and my living costs as a private renter.

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.

    • Hardly surprising given the damage that covid-19 has done to business. Perhaps a supermarket might be able to afford that £75,000 rent, but I don’t see it in the current trading climate.
