A planning application for a large hotel in west Greenwich has been backed by Greenwich Council.
The Council's Planning Board last week gave planning consent for Maurice Drummond House in Catherine Grove to be converted into a hotel.
The eight storey building was originally built in the 1930s as accommodation for officers from the Metropolitan Police.
The new hotel will be called "The Greenwich" and will offer a "boutique" experience in its 168 rooms, according to documents submitted with the planning application.
The former section house received RIBA's London Architectural Medal in 1946. The company behind the scheme is Periquin Limited, the sole director of which is Lady Rona Delves Broughton.
Greenwich Hospital recently won the the right to build a boutique hotel at Greenwich Market and another is planned within the Movement development at the corner of Norman Road and Greenwich High Road.
