Feilden Clegg Bradley wins approval for 162-home Battersea project

  • Comment

Wandsworth Council has approved Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios’ (FCBS) scheme for 162 homes as part of the £15 billion Nine Elms Development in Battersea, south London

The proposals at Palmerston Court include four buildings ranging in height from nine to 16 storeys, arranged around several public courtyards and gardens. There will also be commercial and cultural space.

The 25,500m² scheme involves demolishing the existing 1950-80s brick buildings on the site as well as The Flanagan’s pub, which will be replaced by a new pub.

There were 29 objections to the planning application, including ones from the Battersea Society and the Wandsworth Conservation Area Advisory Committee. 

FCBS associate Stephane Lambert said: ‘We’ve designed a group of buildings that, through their massing, materiality and landscape, will create physical and visual links between Battersea’s existing community and the new developments of Nine Elms.

’Palmerston Court will be high-quality housing that complements the character of the area and contributes to the ongoing regeneration of the Battersea area and its emerging skyline.’

Just over one fifth (21 per cent) of the homes at the Palmerston Court scheme will be classed as ‘affordable shared ownership’. 

The £15 billion Nine Elms Development revolves around three major schemes across a 227ha site: the regeneration of Battersea Power Station, the new United States Embassy, and New Convent Garden Market. It will build 20,000 homes and create 25,000 jobs.

It will also involves building two new tube stops on the Northern Line, one to Battersea Power Station and a second near Sainsbury’s on Wandsworth Road. These are set to open in 2020. 

In June, London mayor Sadiq Khan slammed the Battersea Power Station Development Company (BPSDC) for reducing the number of affordable flats on the Battersea Power Station site from 636 to 386.
