which equivalent spaces has it been compared with? Do those spaces work round the clock at full tilt?- pretty much 2-3 times more hours of activity per day than most offices or businesses. Have they really managed to exclude the specialist spaces and equipment from comparisons? Extra powerful editing computers running round the clock? Office areas used for broadcasting out of round the clock. Not really sure I believe it to be honest. Sounds like someone hasn't really thought about what the BBC actually does in its buildings.
Is anybody promoting these micro homes actually living in one long term while expending absolutely every spare penny they have on it? The answer to London's housing problem is to find a solution that deals with it, not to provide an answer which simply compounds and perpetuates it. Find a way to reduce the demand by making the rest of the country a better option.
Comment on: Boris approves Garden Bridge
Its another bloody development in London, lets face it,while the rest of the country goes down the toilet the money for this will be found.
Any number of other towns and cities across the country could see massive and substantial regeneration projects for the cost of yet another project in London that simply contributes to its congestion, its drain on public funding, the increased desire of business to locate there instead of across other areas of the country and the subsequent impoverishment of the rest of the UK. London is a bit like the biggest out of town shopping centre in the entire UK, maybe the world.
Could the AJ please clarify just who (if anybody) at what is presumably one of the biggest and most succesful practices in history was getting less than the living wage? If this is a commitment to paying support staff and workers such as cleaners then its a great commitment. If this relates to any level of qualified professional staff then it's of some serious concern.
