Catford Constitutional Club: New operators sought for pub after £3.2m renovation

Lewisham Council are seeking new operators for the Catford Constitutional Club.

The aspiration is to open by Easter 2023. £1.65m to renovate has been made available via the Mayor’s Good Growth Fund with Lewisham council match-funding.

Lewisham Council’s Catford Regeneration Partnership Ltd (CRPL) are behind the venture to find a new operator.

The previous occupants complained of being given seven days to vacate the site.

Antic ran the pub, and their retrenchment from the area was compounded in 2020 when Sutton’s radio closed.

Just last week plans came in to extend the building and alter use from a public house to retail.

Road network will see major changes in years to come as part of separate project

Apparently there’s enough pubs in Lewisham and a pub wouldn’t work, while an accompanying report forgot about thousands of new homes now rising in the area.

Anyway, back to Catford, and a planning application for the CCC was submitted in July.

The site will not only comprise a pub but also space for arts, performance and music.

It’s all part of a far larger plan for Catford which will see new builds and a radically reworked road system altering the one-way system at present.

The full planning application for the site’s renovation can be viewed here.
