Time Finally Called for Good at The Princess Royal
Premises to become headquarters of the Armenian Church in the UK
An application (P/2022/3430) has been made to Hounslow Council for a change of use that will allow the former Princess Royal pub to become the headquarters of the Armenian Church in the UK.
The Church bought the pub from Fullers sometime ago and has made some changes at the site already but an earlier planning application for the site at 107 Ealing Road lapsed.
The latest one, which has been made by Bishop Hovakim Manukyan, includes designs which shows that the interior will be converted into a prelacy for the Church.
Bishop Manukyan is the primate of the Armenian Church in the UK and Ireland.
On the ground floor there will be two community halls and a kitchen which the Bishop has said previously will be made available for local community use. On the upper floors there will be accommodation including 5 bedrooms.
The Princess Royal was previously famous for being one of the four pubs on each corner of Brentford FC’s former home at Griffin Park. The pub was owned by the club but they sold it to Fullers who stopped operating it while the club moved to the GTech stadium.
