IS THERE SMOKE WITHOUT FIRE AT BATTERSEA STACKS?

LETTERS

Parkview International's claim that the chimneys at Battersea Power Station are 'beyond repair' (AJ 28.07.05) should be treated with the greatest scepticism. A second opinion, from an independent engineer working to a proper conservation brief, should be obtained.

On a wider note, according to government Planning Policy Guidance PPG 15, 'substantial demolition of the listed building, or any significant part of it' requires alternative ownership to be considered.
