In a time where it seems like every pub is getting torn down and turned into flats, Crystal Palace may just be getting one back.

Antic London have pubs scattered all across the capital and it has now been revealed it is looking to turn the former Plumbase in 58-60 Westow Hill into one more.

Last week the company submitted a planning application to Croydon Council that would see 'Cambridge Coopers' brought to life.

"The new use and the associated changes proposed, will provide an additional leisure service to the High Street, further enhancing the vitality, appeal and draw of the area, whilst drastically improving the streetscape by restoring the buildings originality and front façade at ground level," the application said.

"This design draws its inspiration from the original, historic and traditional-style shopfronts that once existed in the area and will be achieved by replicating many traditional architectural features like stall-risers, facias awning and cornices.

"The design proposed will therefore seek to replicate the original shop front and will seek to restore the buildings originality, charm and character."

The ode to the original it refers to is the Coopers store, which was the original shop located there in 1965.

If approved, the pub will operate as a cafe in the morning before "morphing" into a pub come the evening.

It will be open from 9am seven days a week and close at 11pm Sunday-Wednesday and 12.30am Thursday to Saturday.

Antic is also hoping the new pub would fill a hole that was left when The Cambridge closed down seven years ago.

"This proposal seeks to bring a vacant retail unit back into use and in so doing further enhance the vibrancy of this important retail centre."
