Coal vaults – FAQs

We get asked a lot of questions about coal vaults: who actually owns them, who is responsible for them and how practical they are to convert into habitable space. The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea has published this leaflet which gives a useful insight into how they are dealt with by local authorities. If you are thinking of converting your coal vault and would like further information, please contact Duncan Eastland (Tel. 01296 739431).
