It has emerged that there is building works currently being undertaken. Uncorroborated reports indicate that the upstairs is being converted into flats whilst the downstairs will become a Lebanese Restaurant.
The interior of the Railway Hotel, Edgware in the 1970s. One wonders how much survived after the current 'renovation' work?— Mark Amies (@Superfast72) September 18, 2018

It appears that the building contractors are not certified for working on listed buildings and that no plans for alteration to such a building have been submitted.
If you do not want to see a further degeneration of the site, please leave an objection on the planning request (Click here to access the planning request).
Once again, it makes you wonder what our local councillors actually do for their £10K a year allowances? They are clearly not doing anything to represent their constituents. Even more worrying is that it states Urban Design & Heritage were consulted with Consultation Date: Thu 06 Sep 2018. They didn't bother to leave a comment. What on earth are we paying our taxes for is they can't see the problem with proposals such as this?
