Iconic power station loved by locals

Simon Legg's letter (AJ 23.10.03) asserts that Battersea Power Station's condition of partial ruin is a matter of no concern to the Battersea residents. I do not know how extensive his survey has been but, speaking as one Battersea resident, I believe that it should be a concern to us all. In fact, I chose my flat partly because of its view of the power station.

Its stripped Classical aesthetic and distinctive silhouette is to be celebrated precisely because it is so unlike any of the surrounding buildings. I consider it a magnificent piece from our industrial heritage and look forward to the transformation of this landmark building, which should be a key engine for development in the area.
