Battersea Power Station developer Parkview has requested clarification on the terms of its section 106 agreement

It has asked Wandsworth Borough Council to clarify the terms of the agreement related to the repair of the power station before it begins work at the site.

A spokesman said it hoped the section 106 agreements would require Parkview to take the power station to a ‘fit-out and Shell’ stage, which will include repairing brick work, replacing floors, chimneys, ceilings and the roof, as well as the west wall.

Other section 106 obligations include redeveloping Battersea Park station, highway improvements and redeveloping the south Thames walkway.

Other elements of the site, including residential and commercial development, cannot be let or occupied until the section 106 agreements are met.

Parkview plans to begin the residential phases of development next to the power station once it agrees and completes its section 106 obligations.

Wandsworth Borough Council is expected to discuss Parkview’s requested clarification at a meeting in November.

Parkview was awarded detailed planning consent in August 2000. The remainder of the site was granted planning consent in May 2001. Parkview signed a revised section 106 agreement in January 2005.
