The site is located within the administrative boundary of the London Borough of Hackney. Planning policy for the site is therefore contained primarily within The London Plan – Spatial Development Strategy for Greater London (adopted July 2011) and the London Borough of Hackney Core Strategy (2010).
Haggerston Baths is Grade II listed (ref: 1235838). The listing encompasses the whole property and includes reference to a number of the internal features, including the old brick chimney and historic slipper baths. The property is not located within a conservation area, but is located within an archaeological priority zone. There are no other land use designations that cover the site.
A conservation report commissioned by the London Borough of Hackney in 2005 highlights a number of areas that are of particular architectural, heritage or historical interest. These include the north and south façades, the coal fired boilers, main chimney stack and the pool hall roof. A full copy of this report is available within the data room.
Until the baths’ closure in 2000, the property was in leisure use as a public bathing facility, swimming pool and offices with an ancillary caretaker’s apartment.
