Restoration, BBC2's architectural Pop Idol, presented by former Not the Nine O'Clock News star Griff Rhys Jones, seems to be winning the ratings war.

New research has confirmed that the government and CABE mantra 'mixed use is better' is the right one. Surveyor FPD Savills has produced statistics showing that office, retail and residential developments sited next to one another attract 2.5 per cent more revenue than single-use projects.

New research by Deloitte & Touche has showed occupancy rates in London's top hotels at 69 per cent, the lowest figure on record.

Ken Livingstone's congestion charge is winning over some of its most serious critics.

According to American survey company Georgeson,40 per cent of the capital's business community believe the charge is working well and has had a positive impact on the economy, while only 19 per cent disagree.
