Battersea Power Station plans win 82pc public support

Developers behind plans to transform Battersea Power Station said they have now got more than 80 per cent public support for their plans.

Real Estate Opportunities and Treasury Holdings hosted a third public exhibition at Battersea Power Station in December to present the masterplan that was officially submitted to Wandsworth Council in August 2009.

Eighty two per cent of visitors to the exhibition supported the overall masterplan, representing a twenty per cent increase in support since the last exhibition in June.

Ninety per cent were supportive of the design of the scheme and 97 per cent of attendees also supported the proposed extension to the Northern Line.

For more than a year the Nine Elms site has seen one of the most comprehensive consultation programmes ever for a UK property development and the submitted masterplan reflects the ongoing dialogue between the developers and local residents, Wandsworth Council, and many other stakeholders.

Treasury Holdings managing director Rob Tincknell said: “Throughout the entire planning process we have been mindful to create a scheme which represents the aspirations and concerns of all the stakeholders involved, not least the Battersea community, so we are delighted to have received such overwhelming public support.

“We look forward to delivering this scheme which will both preserve the iconic Power Station building and create a vibrant new urban quarter in London.”
