The Lord Clyde Pub – planning application

It looks like another pub will be closed down in our area.  A planning application has been received by the Council to turn The Lord Clyde Pub in Capworth Street into flats.  There will be a ground and first floor extension and construction of second floor with mansard roof.  The plans are to convert the Public House into 9 self-contained flats (4×1 bed, 5×2 bed) a bin and cycle store will be at the rear.  No parking provision I notice!

The plight of our Public Houses is dire.  Many have closed and many are looking to develop into accommodation.  We have lost many local pubs.  The list is long – The Hollybush, Wakefield Arms, The Four Finches, Oliver Twist, Lion and Keys, The Three Blackbirds, Beaumont Arms and the Bakers Arms. These are all in a stones throw of each other.  Have I missed some off? 

I noticed that the Coach and Horse in Leyton High Road is asking for community involvement to manage the pub.  I am not sure what that means but will try and find out.
