Planning Application for the Clipper Pub, Rotherhithe Street

Further to yesterday's post, thanks very much to Michelle for the planinng reference for the Clipper Pub:  14/AP/140.

As Michelle says, the cut-off date for making your comments on this application is 27th June 2014.  For full details, including documents, see the Southwark Council planning page for this application: http://bit.ly/1ueDtfb.  The planning officer for this application is David Cliff whose contact details are: 020 7525 4351 or planning.applications@southwark.gov.uk.

An artist's impression of what the new development will look like is shown above.  The short description on the Southwarm website is as follows: "Demolition of existing building and erection of new building comprising commercial unit (Use Classes A1 or A2) at ground floor and basement levels; and six residential dwellings on first, second and third floors, along with associated car parking and amenity area."  The developer is McCullochs. 

I cannot work out where the "associated car parking and amenity area" is to be located, as the only immediately visible land is the children's play area next to the Clipper, at the entrance to Russia Dock Woodland.   The Vehicle Parking section of the developer's application form shows that two car parking spaces are to be allocated, and that seven other spaces are to be allocated for "other" purposes but it is not stated what these "other" purposes are (that part of the form has been left blank).

Site plans and consultation details are on the Documents page (from which the image shown on this post is taken).

Dreadful design. Another step toward Rotherhithe being a lifeless slum.

The status of the application on council website is now "withdrawn"

Rex - why is this a 'slum'. Bland perhaps, but 'slum'? Highly inappropriate.

It looks like a frickin Tesco superstore :(

Hi David. As far as I can gather, local residents managed to fight of this particular planning application, but I believe that it has been replaced by a new application. I don't know how The Clipper's neighbours feel about the new plans and if they are going to contest them again, but I'm trying to find out.

Does any know where I can find the design and access statement for this proposal or the new proposal?

My understanding is that planning permission was refused at least once, possibly twice, and that the building is now back up for sale.
