The old Cap in Hand pub site could be redeveloped into flats and a shop, after plans were submitted to Kingston Council.

Sitting just off the Ace of Spades roundabout on the A3, the pub was run by JD Wetherspoon until it closed in January 2016, and before that it was the Southborough Arms.

Proposals from Isle of Man-based developer Mendoza Ltd include 38 homes, all of them being “affordable housing”, with a mixture of one, two and three bedrooms.

The existing 1930s building would be demolished to make way for buildings of up to seven storeys where the pub building sits now, and a row of terraced houses to the west.

There are only 14 parking spaces proposed, including two disabled spaces, with 64 secure cycle spaces.

Ward councillor and vice-chair of the South of the Borough Neighbourhood Committee Lorraine Dunstone said she has asked for the application to be put to the committee before going to Development Control.

Residents cannot comment on the application until it has been validated by the council.
