The once popular pub was shut down around April 2018 and has been boarded up ever since.

According to the plans, which were submitted by the Wellington Pub Company, the pub was suffering "severe financial difficulties" from 2016 until it shut in April 2018 and was "formally repossessed" in June last year with a "large outstanding debt".

Wycombe District Council's planning committee will meet tonight to discuss the plans - and council officers have recommended that they approve them, despite concerns from locals about the impact the flats would have on them. 

Some residents fear the building’s location – on the corner of the already heavily congested London Road – is unsuitable for more homes.

And some have even suggested it could be turned into another doctor’s surgery.
