Plans to turn the former Plumbase DIY store on Westow Hill into a pub were suddenly withdrawn today (Tuesday).
News From Crystal Palace reported on residents opposition to the plans only yesterday.
One delighted resident told NFCP: “We’ve been bowled over with the amount of support there’s been in the community. “It shows what a fantastic place Crystal Palace is and how much people care about what goes on.
“We’re looking forward to see a good occupier of that space – someone who will be a real benefit to the community.”
