The Wellington Pub Group is trying to redevelop the upper floors of The White Hart into residential flats.

Say goodbye to late nights and music. Without them, we won’t be able to survive.

It’s a tale as old as time. In the last decade alone, 35% of London venues have closed.

In August we had the fantastic news that Lewisham Council turned down the planning application! This is a huge victory for The White Hart, and we’d like to thank everyone who signed our petition, wrote objections, came along to the public meetings and stopped by the pub with smiles and words of encouragement. It all made a difference.

Whist this is a big step towards our goal of keeping the pub as it is, it’s not over yet. There’s an appeals process for the planning application, and the issue of renewing the lease. We’ll let you know more when we do. Going forward, we’ll keep the petition going, so do fee free to sign and share.

Thank you for all the support.
