Phoenix Community Housing – the resident led, community housing association – owners of the building are working with the Heritage Lottery Fund to restore and enhance the facilities in the building. Phoenix Community Housing have submitted their plans to Lewisham Council.
The plans include restoration of the pub bars, community facilities, a microbrewery, cafe and possibly a cinema. You can view their plans here.
Bellingham Councillor Alan Hall said: “This is an important milestone in the restoration of the Fellowship Inn. Planning consent will make the vision for a truly community based pub and hub a step closer. This represents real regeneration of a locality. Something that I support.”
