Council vetoes Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands’ Lambeth fire station plan

Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands’ mixed-use redevelopment of a Grade II-listed fire station in Lambeth, London has been denied planning permission

The 33,372 m² housing-led project for developer Native Land and the London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority was turned down by Lambeth Council’s planning committee on Tuesday this week (13 December).

Revised plans for the scheme were submitted in February this year.

The proposal aimed to refurbish the Grade II-listed Thames-side Fire Brigade building at Albert Embankment and extend the structure with glass-clad penthouses.

Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands also proposed two residential buildings of 13 and 15-storeys respectively and a ‘courtyard’ garden to the rear of the building.

The fire station opened in 1937 and was designed by E P Wheeler of the London County Council architects department.

The station’s memorial hall, sculptured panels and an adjacent drill tower were also planned to be retained and restored.

Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands was unavailable to comment.
