English Heritage looks set to toughen up its planning advice on designing tall buildings, its London planning and conservation director has said
The organisation – alongside Design Council Cabe – has recently completed a consultation on revising the guidance, which the two organisations first produced in 2007.
Nigel Barker said: ‘The key message coming out of the consultation was that people felt the advice needed to be stronger. Over the last few years the guidance is not being adhered to as we’d hoped.’
Barker’s comments follow AJ’s Skyline campaign, which called for a more demanding planning system for tall buildings in London.
