There seems to be recent activity in and around the perpetually boarded up south-east corner of the circus.

The other day there was a lorry parked up and several men seemed to be removing scaffolding from the interior of the pub.

Can something finally be happening at this, albeit nicely papered over, eyesore?

It's going to be LSBU's new 'enterprise centre'. The plans are generally sympathetic but I think it's a shame they are proposing to replace the high-level 'Duke of Clarence' lettering with the words 'Enterprise Centre'.

Where can we see the plans?

The planning application documents are here.

From a cursory check it seems like they've changed the plan a bit and the Duke of Clarence lettering will stay, but in a light colour. The Enterprise Centre signage will go on the roof.
