A new planning application has been submitted for a development in a Highgate pub's car park, after a previous proposal was rejected earlier this year.

Brendan the Navigator, in Highgate Hill, could see its rear terrace removed under proposals for housing next to the pub in a stretch currently used as a car park. 

The plans, by developer Artform, include developing the whole of the site into three three-bedroom and two two-bedroom terraced houses. 

Similar plans to build six new homes on six new homes on the site were rejected by Islington Council in February. 

The Irish-American pub, which welcomed customers for the first time in April last year, previously told the Ham&High the consequences of building on the terrace would be “catastrophic”.

Jonathan Ellis, managing director of Artform, said: "The previous application removed the entire terrace but following further consultation with John Ryan at Brendan the Navigator, we are putting back 50% of the terrace.

"We are very excited. It's a very prominent site and needs to be done properly."
