An application to convert the Wheatsheaf pub in St Lawrence into three flats has been submitted to Thanet council.
The pub, which already has a 3-bedroom flat upstairs, has been shut for more than two years.
Earlier this year a proposal to convert the building into one flat, a 4-bed house of multiple occupation (HMO) and a 5 bed HMO was refused by Thanet council.
The High Street pub had previously been put up for sale but no buyer was found.
Applicant Estia Property Solutions Ltd wanted to convert the property to two Houses of Multiple Occupation and a one-bedroom flat. It has now lodged a new application for conversion to 3 self-contained flats.
In the previous application Estia said the Wheatsheaf: “was deemed unviable to continue as a public house for the minimum of the past two years and was put to sale since with no success of being purchased to the moment.
“The aim is to provide more accommodation in the area with professionals and key-workers as the target audience.”
Ten objections were received against the HMO application with concerns such as the pub only being marketed during the pandemic and overdevelopment.
In October emergency services were called to the property and had to shut the road due to debris falling from the building.
The Wheatsheaf pub dates back to at least 1828.
