Coffee and ice cream to be sold from Waterloo phone box

A Waterloo phone box which sold at auction for £25,000 could soon be converted into a coffee and ice cream kiosk.

Coffee and ice cream to be sold from Waterloo phone box

The K2 model phone box outside the Waterloo Action Centre in Baylis Road failed to meet its guide price of £45,000 at last year's auction but did change hands for £25,000.

Now Saira Iqbal and Bilal Hassan have applied to Lambeth Council for planning permission to turn the grade II listed phone box into a kiosk selling "coffee, ice-cream and other hot beverages, pre-prepared packed food items and cold drinks".

The planning application notes that "the proposal would bring a redundant structure back into use and optimises the potential of a site highly constrained by its limited floorspace to provide employment for one person".

See planning application 22/02960/FUL for further details.
