Ladywell restaurant plan submitted

An application to redevelop the old Snack Bar at 40 Ladywell Road has been submitted. The application is for:

The construction of rear extensions at basement and ground floor levels and external staircase to first floor level at the rear of 40 Ladywell Road SE13, together with the installation of new shop front, rear extraction flue, roof light to front roofslope and alterations to the rear elevation.

The unit, squeezed between Geddes and Le Delice, has been dormant for a while, but has Tardis-like qualities which mean that it has considerable potential. Brockley architects Gruff have drawn up the plans, which is a good sign that this will be done properly. The plan is to shift the kitchen into the basement, creating a dining space on the first floor, with access to a little terrace area at the back.

With thanks to Simon.
