Red Lion - Tolworth

13 years ago...

I see they have started bull dozing at long last


so they are spending money on that while the build on Brighton road has been half built for 2 years!!!

Probably not. There is a stupid planning rule that says the site must be cleared and the first brick laid to guarantee against having the permission revoked at any time in the future.

That is why the developer on the site at Maple Road (next to the school) has knocked down the houses even though they cannot afford to build flats on the site at current selling prices.

I am sure I saw on this site that some of the work at Brighton Road contravened building regulations, so that will probably be on hold until that is resolved.

Interesting - though I hope they keep the frontage of the pub

Looks like nothing will be saved & it will be demolished to the ground
Shame as it was one of Tolworths oldest buildings

It's gone :(
Anybody know what's planned for the site?
More flats maybe, to house the ever increasing student population that's taken over the area.
Oh I hope not...
