  • Comment on: Architects reject government plans for garden cities

    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.
