One of the most recognisable buildings in the UK is to be offered for sale on the open market for the first time in its history.

Battersea power station, in south London, has been vacant since it was decommissioned in 1983. Planning permission for a £5bn development including homes, offices, a hotel, retail and leisure facilities was secured for the site from Wandsworth council last year.

The scheme includes a £200m contribution towards connecting the power station to the London tube network by extending the Northern line from Kennington.

It would also mean the creation of 25,000 jobs – 15,000 within the power station building – and the construction of 16,000 homes.
