Objections to the Battersea Power Station Planning Application must be in by 31st January and there is plenty to object to.
The developers REO/Treasury Holdings want to:
Demolish the historically interesting and currently listed Pumping House.
Demolish the chimneys and replace (yeah right) with some kind of plastic replicas.
Build some of London’s ugliest and greediest office monstrosities.
Privatise large sectons of land around the power station.
Knock windows into the Power Station so they can build “luxury” flats.
The vast planning application contains many real hidden horrors, obscured by red herrings such as the Battersea extension of the Northern Line which is never going to happen and the ridiculous roof top swimming pool added to the model at the last minute.
