All Inn One - Petition to Support the Redevelopment
We the undersigned support the planning application to redevelop the site on which the public house, All Inn One (formerly The Forresters Arms), is located at Perry Vale, Forest Hill.
The development includes a proposal to build a new hotel in which provision has been included for a replacement for the existing public house.
We ask you as Head of Planning to encourage the support of the Council and its Planning Department for this application.
The Real Friends of All Inn One
Why is this important?
Patrons, regulars and Lewisham residents have benefited from the 18 years of hard work by its former owners, elevating what was a failed pub in very poor repair into what is a successful establishment.
They have elected to end their involvement and the business has been sold.
The new owners wish to expand the use of the site to include a hotel and have fully and publicly committed to incorporating a new pub within their development. Some patrons view the retention of a small garden space as desirable.
The existing pub building has been re-modelled and has had many makeovers since its inception in the mid-1800's.
It is essential that support for this proposal is demonstrated. The continuing presence of a pub is highly desirable to the area as is the introduction of a new hotel. Both new ventures will mutually support one another and this proposal will provide a means to secure the future of the replacement pub.
Economically and commercially this new phase for the public house will be an attractive proposition for new licencees and the locality will benefit from the influx of new custom for both ventures into the area.
