Charlton pub is locally listed

Greenwich Council have added The White Swan pub in Charlton to its local heritage list.

Cllr David Gardner stated the addition today in a tweet:

More than 500 buildings are on the local list in Greenwich borough.

It does however offer far less protection than national listing. Protections are modest at best against future changes.

Other pubs have been demolished after being granted local listing, including the Harrow Inn in Abbey Wood. Around thirteen years after that was demolished, Peabody still oversee a long vacant eyesore after years of ownership.

An application to build a house behind the White Swan in Charlton has already been approved by Greenwich Council’s planning board, with a further application to convert upper floors into two flats rejected.

The pub has sat closed for more than three years.

Adverts are far from enough to cover site costs and my rent.

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.
