A pub which has closed down several times during the last few years is set to be demolished to make way for housing.

Proposals to demolish the Britannia in Buckingham Street, Aylesbury and build 14 ‘self contained apartments’ in its place have been submitted to Aylesbury Vale District Council for approval.

In a statement to the council, agents acting on behalf of applicants Justpubs Ltd said: “The site has no realistic demand from pub operators and in our view is not viable as a pub business going forward.”

The pub most recently shut down in March. Owners Punch Taverns then managed to sell the property, which had been on the market since 2012.

Meanwhile, the council has approved plans to demolish the Steeplechase pub in Taylor Road, Southcourt, and turn it into a residential care home.
