Plans have been submitted to demolish the Sun in the Sands pub in Blackheath. The building is located at the roundabout of the same name, with developers hoping to replace it with a block consisting of commercial space at street level and eight flats above.

The current pub is in a conservation zone, but the developers claim it’s in too poor a condition to remain.

The planned replacement is a bit of a dog. It looks very cheap; the sharp angles of that corner treatment, and the grey top floor? Not good.

The planning reference is 17/0977/F. Search here to comment.
