Pellings police station axed

  • Comment
The London Metropolitan Police has scrapped Pellings Architects’ proposals for the redevelopment of Wood Green police station in the London Borough of Haringey.

The Met took the decision following ‘lengthy consultations’ with local residents, who voiced concerns over the design of the building.

The plans for the glass-fronted building – designed to house 40 cells – would have seen the demolition of the old Edwardian station.

Richard Wood, assistant borough commander for Haringey, said: ‘Following the recent public consultation on the plans, we have withdrawn the original planning application and the proposals are now being reconsidered.

‘We are procuring a new commission for architects to address specific issues, including the design of the proposed facade and how the redevelopment scheme fits into the character of the local area.’

The Met hopes to resubmit a new planning application by the autumn.
