Community in fight to save Battersea pumping station

  • Comment

The Battersea Power Station Community Group is fighting to save what it feels is an important listed building in the shadow of the landmark and is urging others to lobby English Heritage to that effect.

The group says the 1840 Grade II Battersea Water Pumping Station on Cringle Street could be adapted for social, cultural, education and training uses. Ideally it should be compulsorily purchased, says the group, so it could set up a trust to convert the building to community use.

But Parkview International, whose Geoffrey Reid-designed plans for a hotel near the power station were attacked by CABE last week, has a 1997 listed building consent to demolish. EH's London advisory committee will consider Parview's Phase 2 proposals tomorrow (March 2).
