Peterborough pub conversion plans have turned the anti-social hotspot into a convenience store back on the table

The former Golden Lion pub in Stanground.

Plans to convert a former Peterborough pub into a shop have been resubmitted to City Council.

Morton and Hall Consulting Ltd have applied for permission to convert the ground floor of the former Golden Lion pub in Church Street, Stanground, into a store and the first floor into a three bedroom apartment, with two bathrooms, one of which a bathroom, an office, living room and kitchen.

The pub has stood empty for over a decade and has recently become a hotspot for anti-social behavior.

Rubbish, including drug paraphernalia, has been removed from the abandoned Peterborough pub after…

The old pub has been the subject of several planning applications over the years and the latest, for an as yet unnamed store, will be the third time an application has been submitted to rejuvenate the site.

In 2016 plans were submitted to demolish the old pub and convert it into a convenience store – believed to be Nisa – and four apartments.

These were, however, rejected due to vehicle access issues. The council also received 71 objections to the plans and only one letter of support.

In 2014, plans were submitted to turn the pub into an Afghan community center. These attracted a public petition to oppose the plans and the council received 383 objections. Despite this, officers recommended approval of the plans before they were withdrawn by the claimant.

The final plans have now been submitted to council and include a proposed turn plan. They can be consulted in their entirety on the town planning portal under the reference 22/00596/FUL.
