Under threat of demolitionEdit
In 2013, Lambeth Council and Transport for London announced plans to demolish the bus station to build a new High Street, as part of Vauxhall's regeneration plans. The Vauxhall Society is campaigning against the demolition and set up a petition to pressure the government not to demolish the bus station. An attempt to get the bus station Listed building status failed.
