There are around 12 million people living in London, but i know what point your making.
Affordable housing in London is probably the most important issue and biggest challange. De bottons arguement emphasized the aesthetics of Londons current building developments, more so unfortunately than affordable housing. This descusion is about the quality of our architectural environment.. he's arrogance as to what we should find beautiful is what prompted me to write. Sorry to bang on!

I wouldn't pay too much attention to those, they're rarely accurate.

Thanks SE9 , i wouldn't really know because I've been on this forum for around 11 months.

Since plots; A,B,D and E are only seeking outline planning permission would they need to seek detailed planning permission for those plots too ?

Is it true that London's inner city center is expanding thanks to this sort of construction boom and to the predictable large scale refurbishement of existing buildings in decay ?

That's right, although it would be a relatively swift process.

It can be viewed that way. Take the King's Cross for instance, a scheme at the edge of central London which has established itself as a district and destination in its own right. The likes of Nine Elms will look to do the same.

So , we could argue that London will sorta' develop like Tokyo , decentralization and development of alternative centers : CW , King's Cross etc around the city core , quite interesting though ...

Schemes like King's Cross, Nine Elms, Elephant & Castle are all parts of the central core, albeit the edges of it.

A few kilometres east of that central core you have the fast developing eastern districts of the Docklands, Greenwich Peninsula and Stratford.

A few kilometres west of the central core, there's the developing districts of White City, Earls Court and Old Oak Common.

Very interesting - I was under the impression that Britain's falling out with this architectural style was so deep that such a building would never be built again, nevermind appreciated. Good stuff.

Britain has fallen out with virtually every architectural style with the exception of International and a few other tedious, difficult-to-distinguish modern styles.

Seriously why bother wasting your time posting the same repetitive post, each and every time.

Be constructive, take a look at these nice old pictures, have a cry at how it ain't what it used to be and have a nice cup of tea to make you feel better.
