The latest plans for what to do with Battersea Power Station have been rejected by the Mayor's office for, among other things, not including enough affordable housing (PDF). The application, by Real Estate Opportunities, needs more work to bring it into line with Boris's London Plan (which seems a bit harsh given the plans were submitted before the Plan was finalised). But City Hall is generally very encouraging about the scheme, which looks like it just needs a bit of tweaking before it'll be acceptable and then who knows? It may even be somewhere we can afford to live.
