PM to back move from Parliament for £4bn upgrade



Prime Minister Theresa May is set to back plans for MPs to move out of the Houses of Parliament for at least six years as part of a £4bn restoration project.

Major work to save the crumbling grade I listed Palace of Westminster is scheduled to start in 2022. It will be the first time MPs have moved out since the Blitz.

Vacating the building for the refit is the cheapest solution of three considered by a special Parliamentary Committee of MPs and peers. This is expected to be recommend by the committee today as its favoured option.

The other choices are a partial move-out, which would take 11 years and cost £4.4bn. The third option would allow the MPs to stay put – which would cost £5.7bn and the work would last 32 years.

A study by Deloitte last year highlighted the appalling condition of the Palace of Westminster, with potentially deadly fire risks, collapsing roofs, crumbling walls, leaking pipes and large quantities of asbestos.

According to The Times today, the Prime Minister will back the call, increasing the chances that it will happen, but the final decision still rests on a parliamentary vote.

MPs would relocate to the Department of Health while the House of Lords would decamp to the Queen Elizabeth II conference centre in Westminster.

Charing Cross ticket hall to shut for months in major upgrade project

Ticket halls at one of London’s busiest Tube stations will close for more than a year for a major upgrade, it has been announced.

Two ticket halls at Charing Cross Underground station will shut to undergo refurbishment and make more space for commuters.

The Northern line ticket hall will close from September 26 until July 2017, Transport for London said.

During that time, passengers are advised to use Embankment station to access the Northern line, while those wanting to use the Bakerloo line should enter via the subway at Trafalgar Square.

The 1970s style ticket hall will be upgraded with new tiles, improved CCTV, lighting and new ticket barriers to make more space at the top of the escalators.

The smaller Bakerloo line ticket hall, which is currently similarly outdated, will also close for refurbishment from July 2017, after the Northern line ticket hall has reopened.

It will remain closed until December 2017.

Mark Wild, Managing Director of London Underground, said: “The Northern line ticket hall at Charing Cross was opened in the 1970s, and now feels tired and unwelcoming. This work will improve the ticket hall, making it bright, modern and a better place for our customers to pass through.

McGee set for 5-floor Claridges mega basement



London luxury hotel Claridges has unveiled plans to create a five-floor ‘iceberg’ basement beneath the Art Deco portion of the grade II listed Mayfair building.

The deep basement will house a new swimming pool and spa in the first lower level, which the hotel says its needs to retain its place for the next 50 years as a five star luxury hotel.

A new second basement level will house Claridges’ in-house bakery and chocolatier as well staff changing and dining, kitchen prep area,.

Unsightly roof top plant will also be relocated in the lower basement levels along with a boiler room allowing the top floors of the building to be rebuilt and extended for 40 more rooms and suites.

The ambitious basement and roof extension plan follows previous proposals for a two-floor basement extension, which because of ground conditions required piles to extend to the same depth as the newly proposed five floor basement.
