On 6th December 1933 the Ministry made a clearance order for the area, but omitted the Duke Of York from the scheme.

On Wednesday 17th January 1934, the Magistrates were advised that although originally included within the slum clearance plan, by the time of the last meeting, the inn had been omitted from the new housing scheme. It was however the case that the Corporation wanted the property on the grounds of compulsory purchase.
Being definitely excluded from the Ministry scheme, the owners, Steward & Patteson, were entitled to full compensation.
Described as an Anti-1860 house, there was an entitlement to 12 years' purchase. The rent for 18 years had totalled £288 and the total value was £1029 3s. When the licence was taken away, the house value was £225. Compensation entitlement was therefore £804 3s. The usual amount of Five per cent would be paid to the manager.
The Magistrates agreed with the figures and awarded the full sum.

S&P records state that the house was closed by Compensation 1934 and sold 1935.
