London Road Station adopted as a Local Heritage Asset

London Rd Stn 2

From Ted Power, The Round Hill Society

I should like to thank Southdown Rise Residents Association, individuals and Councillors from your ward  who supported the nomination I made two years ago for SHAFTESBURY PLACE, LONDON ROAD STATION BRIGHTON to be added to our city’s Local List of Heritage Assets. 

The good news is that we have succeeded. From 2015 SHAFTESBURY PLACE, LONDON ROAD STATION BRIGHTON has been included in the local list, as confirmed here.

It would be misleading to give the impression that a local listing offers as much protection against ‘unsuitable planning’ as a national listing, but getting our Local Council to value the station and its setting formally is at least a start.

With best wishes,

Ted

    Thank you Ted and all who helped with this. I made representations too. This station needs protection, it is beautiful as it is and cared for – not least by the Partnership, but anything to stop individual people with bright ideas messing with it is a tremendous help. Well done you.
