George & Dragon redevelopment finally approved
Lambeth planners have finally given the go-ahead to a redevelopment of the George & Dragon pub on Vauxhall Street, which has lain derelict for many years.
The scheme will preserve a pub on the ground floor, convert the upper floors to flats, and build a three storey extension to the rear. Nine flats will be provided in total.
Councillor Mark Harrison supported the application and said 'I know residents in the area will be pleased that this derelict eyesore will finally be sorted out. The scheme is sensitive to the surrounding conservation area, preserves the pub use on the ground floor, and provides much-needed new homes'.
