You may have noticed that work has finally started on Stockley house at the top of Wilton Road behind Victoria station.
The complicated scaffolding was completed just after Christmas and demolition is now underway. They anticipate taking the building down to ground level by mid-May.
These works are taking place under their existing 2015 planning permission to replace the existing eight storey building with a 15 storey tower, with retail or restaurant premises at street level and residential flats above.
Whilst we are delighted that this site is finally being improved, we have written to object to a proposed alternative scheme with a 23 storey tower above ground level which would be much taller than anything else around: they should build what they already have permission for.
