A pub accused of flouting planning laws has been given a temporary reprieve over changes to its garden, which were at the centre of its ongoing dispute with a crepe stall.

The King William IV in Hampstead High Street was facing enforcement action from Camden Council last month, which ordered the pub to remove wooden structures erected in the beer garden without planning permission.

But since the pub submitted retrospective planning applications for the works, the enforcement action has been put on hold.

Cllr Phil Jones, cabinet member for sustainability, transport and planning, said: “Subject to the additional information being supplied in the early new year, we’ll await their determination before taking any further enforcement action.

“Once registered, a formal consultation process will begin where residents can submit comments on the proposal.”

The pub’s dispute with La Crêperie de Hampstead began in the summer over a fridge in the pub’s garden which was used by the crepe stall.

After a lengthy battle that saw lawyers called in on both sides, the pub had the fridge removed in order to carry out the garden refurbishments.
