  • Comment on: Architects reject government plans for garden cities

    david gurtler's comment 23-Jan-2014 5:06 pm

    The ideas are hardly bold, rather they are unrealistic and the pipe dream of BoJo plus his sidekick Daniel Moylan. Consider the airport side, which would: - require massive compensation to LHR, - devestate employment in west London (Hounslow, Ealing, Hillingdon) and the A4-M4 corridor, - involve astronomical cost for new hub plus infrastructure (exceeding £112M), - prove difficult (or impossible) to provide new train lines into London, - result in obliteration of major habitats protected by EU directives, - not have the backing of NATs, being described by their CEO as is in the 'worst possible place', - require consultation with other govts due to trans-national EIA implications Gosh the list goes on. Then why would you build a new garden village in West London when there were no more jobs in that area to justify it. The TCPA's concepts produced last year showed a lack of connection with reality.
