Residents living on or near Cherry Orchard Road and the wider East Croydon area who started the Save The Glamorgan campaign to keep a historic local boozer as an Asset of Community Value are staging a key meeting on Monday.
At the meeting, the owners of the building – which closed as a pub last year – will being holding a presentation of revised plans for the site.
The Glamorgan, which dates back to the 1880s, is surrounded by new-build flats, built as part of Menta’s very slow-progress Morello development along Cherry Orchard Road.
Meanwhile, the owners of the Glamorgan want to replace the pub with… more flats.
The #SaveTheGlam campaigners, helped by Addiscombe councillor Sean Fitzsimons, have been busy over the past six months or so since first meeting, and have submitted an application to have the building declared an Asset of Community Value, which would give it some degree of protection from development.
They are now preparing to deliver a petition to Croydon Council.
The meeting on Monday (Feb 12), is at Croydon Town Hall, and begins at 7pm. Everyone is welcome to attend.
