Historic Legislation: London Building Act 1894

Historic Legislation: London Building Act 1894

Selby owned the freehold of 11 Royal Mint Street, London. Whitbread & Co owned the Rising Sun pub at number 12. Whitbread wanted to demolish and rebuild number 12.

Whitbread obtained consent from the licensing justices, but that consent came with a condition that the new pub be set back from the street to provide a wider footpath. Whitbread entered into an agreement with London County Council that the strip of land to the front of the new pub would be transferred to the Council, and dedicated as a highway.
