London pub demolition “without permission”

by DevAssist Team on April 22, 2015 No comments

Westminster City Council is considering taking legal action against the developer CLTX Ltd over the demolition of a pub in Maida Vale, west London. It was being considered for listing, as it was one of the last buildings left standing in its street during WW2 bombings.

The council had rejected plans to pull down the Carlton Tavern in Carlton Vale in January. CLTX Ltd wants to build a ground-floor pub with four upper floors comprising ten residential units. The planning sub-committee turned down this proposal on January 13 because “the bulk, height and detailed design the new building would be detrimental to the view from the adjacent Maida Vale Conservation Area”.
