Planning matters

8 Albert Embankment

Developers are holding an initial consultation event about their plans for the former headquarters of the London Fire Brigade at 8 Albert Embankment. The site is in three parts - the landmark building on the riverside, a large site between Whitgift Street and Southbank House (pictured), and a small carpark site at the corner of Black Prince Road and Newport Street. Developers are proposing a mixed use development providing a new fire station, homes, retail and commercial space.

They are holding an exhibition at the Fire Station at the following times:
Thursday 25 June, 4pm - 8pm
Friday 26 June, 3pm - 6pm
Saturday 27 June, 10am - 1pm

Planning permission is being sought for a 42 storey building just outside Prince's ward at Vauxhall Cross. Lurking About SE11 Blog has a good summary of the issues with links to the application and the Viva Vauxhall group's objections.

Have you any more information about what type of structure is proposed at 8 Albert Embankment?

I don't quite follow. Surely no-one is proposing to demolish that (as you put it) landmark building? Please say it isn't so.

I'm pretty sure the riverside building will be kept. It will be interesting to see what the developers are proposing for the rear of that building, and for the other two sites. The Whitgift Street site is very large indeed. Once I've met with the developers I'll let you know!
