Emma Hamilton Pub Site Scheme Is Refused

Plans rejected by councillors

Controversial plans for flats to be built on the site of the former Emma Hamilton pub (below) in Kingston Road, Wimbledon Chase, have been turned down by councillors.

Planning permission for 55 flats in a four-storey building were rejected at a Merton council planning meeting on Thursday (November 8).

Planning officers had recommended the scheme got the go-ahead.

But now the developers have a choice between appealing the decision or tweaking their plans and re-submitting them.
