Welcome to our website for the dismantling of the Imperial Road gasholders, Fulham.

The Site

The disused gasholder site is located in Sands End, and falls within the LB Hammersmith and Fulham's South Fulham Riverside Regeneration Area. The gasholders are located between Imperial Road, Michael Road, Gwyn Close and the London Overground rail line at the rear of the site. The site is currently accessed from Imperial Road to the South and Michael Road to the West.

Our plans

National Grid was granted planning permission by the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham on 12th November 2014 to dismantle five of the six gasholders at Imperial Road, Fulham.

By removing the gasholders, National Grid will make way for the long-term regeneration of the site.

The four Grade II listed buildings on the site, including Gasholder No. 2 – the world’s oldest gasholder – will be preserved and incorporated into a new outline masterplan for the site. This will set out a long-term vision for the redevelopment of the site with new homes, shops, offices and public spaces.

Work on the gasholders will start in late 2015 and will be completed on a phased basis over a number of years.

Our dismantling works are an important first step towards regenerating the site and delivering an exciting future for the Imperial Road area, in the heart of Fulham.
