Maybe I'm just being boring.. but my favourite would be the 2nd proposal.. despite being very square and a bit bland.. I think its best suited.. the others look tacky to me, except design 4..but that looks like it belongs more in a theme park :S

I like the second one, it looks mature and subtle, fitting for the area. You don't want anything taking away from the Eye, just complimenting it :yes:

Does this mean any of the more ambitious plans, such as a new sub-terranian film theatre have been scrapped completely?

The ampitheatre idea (which was the best out of all these pathetic ones) was scrapped because the local residents didn't want the extra tourists in the area.

Ah yes, living next door to London's top tourist attraction. Geat idea.

These ones are just fancy gardens.

I'd rather keep it how it is - just a big open grassy space.

Yeah the new home for the NFT was going to be built on the ugly as **** car park next to the jubilee gardens, that shrine to council estate greenery... and the residents (where did they spring up from?!) complained that they wouldnt have any car parking space and that the developments would encourage too many tourists in the area... did they actually look up from the pavement? All rather depressing, these plans just seem second rate in my opinion and will tart up rather than address the problems of the South Bank

The whole area needs a massive regeneration and masterplan project - which could of been a perfect slot in part to the Olympic Regeneration Projects.

But no, once again, no one has any vision and London is left as piecemeal developments.

It's next door to the top London landmark for crying out loud! Would the French simply lay down a bit of paving and 'be done' with the gardens next to the Eiffel Tower?

3 Is the best in my opinion, A fountian and a cafe sound good to me! 2 is ok but the boardwalks will age quickly and look crap after a few years!

It's had masterplans done for it. The problem is that there's no-one with a coherent vision and energy to push it through. I mean of course the local residents will object (wherever they are), the local residents ALWAYS object if they haven't been consulted. A propoer consultation programme normally doe sthe trick. Ask them what they want to see, incorporate as much as you practically can and away you go. I can't beieve that remodelling the park is THAT controversial.

I completely agree, number 2 is the best, but number 3 looks good too.

Yeah the area needs redeveloping, everything practically along from the IMAX along to Westminster Bridge needs to be totally redeveloped - prime site for some classical works methinks!!!

The Summer beach planned for the car park may be scrapped - not enough time to build it thanks to the usual Lambeth bureaucracy.

Pathetic.
