A derelict pub in Yiewsley could be converted into six flats, if planning consent is given.
The Nags Head, on the corner of Falling Lane and Royal Lane, lost its licence in 2011, following reports of anti-social behaviour.
The building has since been broken into and squatters have been evicted. Its owner has tried repeatedly to sell the property, but with no success.
The proposed development would keep the existing structure, as well as adding six parking spaces, including one disabled spot, at the back of the building.
In planning documents lodged with Hillingdon Council, applicant Towers Associates said: “This site has been considered by many buyers before; all have considered the location and the past history unviable as a public house of this size.
“They have also considered demolishing the whole building and rebuilding new flats. This has proved too costly for the net gain, whilst being very disruptive on this corner site, and is likely to receive considerable local opposition.
“The only viable option we could see is to try to reuse as far as practical the existing structure. Reducing disruption and cost.”
The council's planning committee is scheduled to make a decision by April 29.
