NOTES: This, the largest housing scheme by Westminster City Council, was built in four sections between 1946 and 1962. The pumphouse for the district heating scheme was located at the base of the heat-accumulator tower which was used to store the hot water brought in a tunnel below the river from Battersea power station. The heating consultants were Kennedy & Donkin and the structural engineers were Scott & Wilson.
