Albertine's stables and function room targeted for residential conversion

Developers have lodged planning applications to convert the old stables at the back of the pub formerly known as Albertine's (237 Lewisham Way) into new homes, and to convert the first-floor function room into residential use.

Although the proposed new homes look OK, the stables (which you can see here) would be a bit of a loss. Most worryingly though is that the cumulative effect of these changes would be to make it harder than ever to bring this building back into use as a functioning pub. The loss of the large function room, in particular, is concerning and would constitute the loss of the sort of amenity which is in short supply in the area.

We understand that BrocSoc is likely to object to the application to convert the first floor for residential use.
