16 November (Part 3) - Here we go again. A fourth planning application for the site of Ye Olde Leather Bottle

The developer of Ye Olde Leather Bottle is not lying down after being fined by the H&SE for unsafe demolition practices and being rejected three times by Bexley Council so far for submitting plans that were ugly in 2017 and because they were contrary to the Council’s requirements earlier this year. (They didn’t want yet another care shome.)

The 2017 plan was repeated with few changes in 2018 and the same trick (20/02852/FULM) has now been pulled with the April 2020 plan. Another glorified care home or as the application itself describes it; “Erection of a 70 Bed Care Home with associated ancillary care facilities, staff accommodation, landscaped gardens and parking”.
There is a complete history of the demolition and redevelopment of Ye Olde Leather Bottle available on this site.

There have been a couple of planning rejections at 238 Woolwich Road too.
