A decision on the future of a Belsize Park launderette under threat of closure is expected in the ‘next couple of weeks’.
'Launderette', in England's Lane, wil be turned into a retail unit if a change of use planning application - which closed on February 17 - is approved by Camden Council.
In January, Hampstead greengrocers Artichoke pulled out of plans to move into the proposed site after it said as a family-run shop, it supported local business.
However, the owner of the building Camure Ltd is still proceeding with its plans.
Launderette manager Celia King told this newspaper everything was "up in the air", and after initially believing the launderette might be saved, she was shocked to see a nearby notice (pictured above) confirm the application was going ahead.
