Plans to substantially rebuild the shell of a former pub in Charlton could finally begin as detailed plans have been submitted to Greenwich Council.
The Victoria pub at 757 Woolwich Road has stood derelict for many years and seen a number of fires.
After an arduous few years of plans, changes at the site could finally be progressing.
The latest planning submission includes a Construction Logistics Plan & Construction Management Plan which is often a sign works are quite well progressed.
Yet another was approved in 2022 from the Zaan group, and the latest detailed submission shows how the building will appear when adorned with unsympathetic Domino’s branding on the locally listed structure.
The image shows no eagle over the door, a symbol of the Truman Brewery:
Greenwich’s Local Heritage List states of the building:
“Late-Victorian Public House with Edwardian tiled façade by Truman’s Brewery.
Despite fire damaged interiors the fine tiled façade of 1910 survives with several splendid features including the large spread eagle which holds up the corner above the name ‘The Victoria’ and Truman’s trademark eagle on the Eastmoor Street façade.
Significant townscape value being the only remaining building marking former historic crossroads of Eastmoor Street and Woolwich Road which gives a sense of the now lost, formerly intimate streetscape of the area. Qualifies due to architectural interest as an evocative and sole-surviving example and environmental significance as a characterful, time-honoured local feature.”
The applicant states “This is an isolated building that does not relate to any existing use in the area. Therefore, new uses are required.” Since then hundreds of homes have been approved nearby on appeal.
