The Dog and Fox Public House

We were able to demonstrate that the loss of existing staff accommodation and establishment of a hotel on site was acceptable in policy terms.

The proposal was to introduce a 17 room boutique hotel to the upper floors of the Dog and Fox public house. The building is located in the Wimbledon Village Conservation Area and is Locally Listed.

The original scheme was refused due to the loss of staff residential accommodation on the site. In order to resolve this matter we liaised closely with the Council to address their concerns and provide information on the nature of the existing accommodation, and why the hotel would support the financial viability of the existing public house.

In light of this, we were able to demonstrate that the loss of existing staff accommodation and establishment of a hotel on site was acceptable in policy terms. In addition, we were able to demonstrate that the principle of hotel use was acceptable in amenity, highways and conservation terms.
