Heritage watchdog aids Elephant & Castle redevelopment

Elephant & Castle Delancey

Boost for Allies & Morrison proposals as Historic England grants immunity-from-listing certificates

Allies & Morrison’s proposals for the wholescale redevelopment of south London’s Elephant & Castle Shopping Centre have taken a step forward with a decision from Historic England to rule out the listing of key existing buildings.

The government’s heritage watchdog has issued two five-year immunity-from-listing certificates covering the main 1960s shopping centre, the Hannibal House office building above it, and the neighbouing Coronet Theatre.

Also included in the main immunity certificates are two pubs – The Charlie Chaplin and the former Butts pub in Newington Butts, two Victorian buildings next to the Coronet and one of the entrances to the Elephant & Castle Underground Station.
