A pub that was named in honour of one of Manor Park’s war heroes is to be redeveloped.
The Victoria Cross, on Jack Cornwell Street, takes its name from the 16-year-old who won the medal at the battle of Jutland in 1916.
The two-storey building, which has accommodation for the landlord above the pub, is currently unoccupied and is in a run-down state.
Under the proposals, a pub is set to be retained on the site while nine new homes will be built across two buildings.
The plans include one five-bedroom house along with one one-bedroom four two-bedroom and three three-bedroom flats.

The design and access statement said: “By demolishing the redundant and poor quality public house there is an opportunity to construct a high quality residential development.”
The application received three objections from neighbours, who raised concerns about noise levels and disturbance during the construction period.

But the delegated report ruled that the noise would not be unacceptable.
It added: “Careful consideration has been given to ensuring that there will be no loss of privacy for surrounding residents and those occupiers within the development.”
Residents will benefit from a communal amenity space, car parking and a shared garden.
Work on the pub’s redevelopment must begin within the next three years.
