A planning application has been made to renovate the Plume of Feathers pub on Plumstead High Street and construct two new buildings on site.
Nine residential units are proposed in total.
The Plume is a Grade II listed building located on Plumstead High Street near Plumstead corner.
The application states that the listed pub will see “1920’s replacement doorsets side glazing/panels & fan lights to be made good with enhanced security, acoustic & thermal performance; or replaced with reproduction if necessary”, while the application states that the “existing bar, surfaces & storage are not of particular quality, age or workmanship, and are to be removed and a new bar are installed.”
It also states “all the joinery is of modern origin, being surface decoration applied to create an “olde worlde” atmosphere. None of the timbers or planked surfaces on the ceiling or walls is of 18th century date.”
Proposals to convert to the Plume into a restaurant/takeaway were submitted in 2020. That was later withdrawn.
Last year the site was being used as a dumping ground:
