The petition labels the scheme an eye-sore but it has been approved

Three hundred local residents have signed a petition against approved plans to turn a former Rotherhithe boozer into flats.

The petition calls for the scheme’s permission to be revoked, labelling it an “eyesore” which will “overhang the pavement” and “dominate the street scene.”

A plan had been previously approved for a different scheme on the site, which those signing the petition state would have mirrored nearby warehouses and was “designed to contribute to and not damage the local heritage.”

The revised scheme for the site, approved by officers in February will see six two bed flats being created alongside a ground floor retail space and basement parking.

The Clipper closed in 2014.

Full details can be found of the scheme by searching ‘18/AP/3420’ on the Southwark Council planning register.

The petition can be found by searching the planning application reference on the petitions website.

Too much of our old heritage is being disposed of anyway it’s too near to traffiction for flats. Find d another use a useful one
