Olympia car park could be part of 'Pergola London' chain

The White City pergola attracted 230,000 people during 2016 and 2017.

A car park beside the historic Olympia Exhibition Centre could be transformed into a temporary restaurant.

The team behind the popular Pergola on the Roof pop-up restaurant at the former BBC car park at White City want to open an eatery at the 1930s multi-storey car park.

The Incipio Group plans to put a pergola on the building roof at Maclise Road and run a restaurant there and on the fifth floor with a capacity of 500 for three years.

It runs a pergola restaurant in Paddington, which has self-service dining, two bars and DJs at the weekend and attracted 180,000 visitors last year.

The White City pergola attracted 230,000 who soaked up the sun on the roof during 2016 and 2017.

But English Heritage is considering making the Olympia car park a listed building in its own right as it is one of London's first multi-storey car parks, built in 1936-37.

It was designed by Joseph Emberton and is in the Grade II* Olympia Exhibition Centre complex which he created.

The centre's status was only just increased to Grade II* in May.

The plan will be considered by Hammersmith and Fulham council's planning and development control committee on 10 July.

'No plans to close Charing Cross Hospital'

There are no plans to close Charing Cross Hospital 'in the foreseeable future,' councillors and campaigners working to save it have been told. The £7.2 million funding Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust has sunk into redeveloping the hospital's accident and emergency department (A&E) showed it was investing in the hospital's future, a senior staffer said. Medical director Professor Julian Redhead was speaking at the Hammersmith and Fulham Council (H&F) health, inclusion and social care policy and accountability committee meeting last night.

H&F and Save our Hospitals Hammersmith and Fulham (SOH) have been campaigning against any reduction of services at the hospital.

Designs for an arts centre in a park in Fulham are in the running for an architecture award.

The project for the Sands End Arts Centre has been shortlisted in the people's choice category in the New London Architecture awards.

Commissioned by Hammersmith and Fulham Council, the plans are aimed at transforming the site of the disused Clancarty Lodge in South Park, which is off Clancarty Road.

The centre, which has been partly been funded by Chelsea Football Club as part of their proposed new stadium, is set to open in spring next year.

Other contenders for the award include the Bethnal Green Memorial to people who died in a disaster at the Tube station during World War Two.

The new Bridge Theatre in Southwark, the Herne Hill Velodrome and the Walthamstow Wetlands are also in nominated.

A council is to conduct dry runs of its emergency responses to burst water mains after repeatedly flooded residents and businesses with in Hammersmith and Fulham.

Families were evacuated and the water supply to two hospitals was affected due to multiple floodings in King Street and Goldhawk Road earlier this year.

An estimated 250,000 people could have lost water while repair work was carried out, according to the annual emergency planning report presented to Hammersmith and Fulham Cabinet on Monday.

A surface water flooding exercise is planned for September with key partners to test its emergency responses, the Local Democracy Reporting Service found.

The review found council staff were quickly on scene during the flood, working with emergency services and Thames Water to ensure residents and businesses were cared for.
