More planning applications lodged at Battersea

  • Comment
The developers and architects preparing the long-awaited redevelopment of Battersea Power Station have lodged yet another planning application.

While conservationists and local campaigners are unconcerned by its contents, it goes some way to explaining why no major work has yet started on the site.

Parkview, together with a plethora of architects, including Grimshaw and Arup Associates, won planning for the development over 18 months ago.

If and when the scheme finally gets off the ground it will be a vast mixed-use retail-led development. It will also include housing and a hotel.

But the new application shows that not all planning issues have been settled. It is understood that the new planning application includes changes to the original proposals for the boiler houses.

Meanwhile, local groups protesting against the plans to demolish the chimney stacks and then rebuild them appear to be upping the ante.

The Battersea Power Station Community is planning a public demonstration against the proposals on Monday outside the power station's gates.

Among many claims the group makes - many of which can't be repeated for legal reasons - is the accusation that it would be cheaper to retain the towers.
