Wheels turning

  • Comment

Will the London Eye get its permanent planning permission following its recent application to Lambeth council? The council has been friendly to the wheel and its architects, David Marks and Julia Barfield, from the outset. But Lambeth does not have the final say. That honour is reserved for Lord Falconer, planning minister, following the Article 14 direction issued in November 1996. Naturally he cannot give a view publicly, but is unlikely to oppose it. In Britain, as Cedric Price once said, it does not take long for something to become traditional.
