Gehl force

  • Comment

Let's hear it for the Central London Partnership, the public/private group headed by Patricia Brown, which launched its report by Jan Gehl on public realm policies for the capital at a glittering event in Paddington Basin a fortnight ago.

The report was a reminder that the future planning of London is not just about the Thames Gateway but about the way in which the environment affects millions of Londoners every day - and could be better.

The sort of opportunities we need to seize were well illustrated this week by Sir Terry Farrell, who formally launched his 'Nash Ramblas' project, to develop a walking route from Primrose Hill to St James's Park, Trafalgar Square, and across to the South Bank. We need more initiatives like these, preferably with some overarching (but lighttouch) vision for how London could be?
