Pub chain Antic plans to build flats behind new Cambridge Coopers pub on the Crystal Palace Triangle
It’s going to be Antic’s third pub in the Triangle
It’s not even open yet but pub chain Antic wants to build new flats behind its yet-to-open new pub in Crystal Palace.
In March, the chain was given permission to open its third pub in the Triangle.
But the new pub, expected to be called Cambridge Coopers, has not yet opened at 58-60 Westow Hill on the site of former plumbing shop Plumbase.
Behind the site is a 1980s warehouse which Antic wants to knock down to make way for a block of five flats.
In February it withdrew proposals for three houses in the same location.
The latest planning application was validated by Croydon Council on Tuesday (October 1).
The three-storey building would be made up of four two-bedroom flats and a single three-bedroom flat.
The application states: “The scheme implements a mix of accommodation by creating a high quality four flats one bedroom/two person and one family flat three bedroom/six person, which will have a very positive impact on its immediate surroundings and the ongoing vibrancy of Crystal Palace. ”
It adds that the flats would be “warehouse architecture style” and would be made from mainly brick with timber-frame windows and steel balconies.
“This proposal will significantly improve the look of what is a rather desolate back area and will bring 24/7 life to this spot improving the setting for both it and the nearest neighbours,” says the application.
Public consultation on the plans will close on October 26 and a decision is expected to be made by November 26.
