Battersea Power Station is one of the longest-running development stories in London. For years it seemed an inevitability that the site would be redeveloped and that the power station and its chimneys might be lost. I wrote in these pages in 2012 about the importance of keeping Battersea Power Station and the challenge of developing a viable scheme that satisfied all of the desired planning obligations for the area. I worried that no developer would be able to develop a scheme that both met planning obligations for the area and reused the power station itself.
