Il documento presentato oggi dal sindaco di Londra rivela il progetto di pianificazione urbanistica per i prossimi 20 anni, identificando zone della capitale scelte dal sindaco per una rigenerazione non solo architettonica ma anche sociale.
A blueprint for creating thousands of new homes along the River Thames has been published by the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson. The draft London Riverside Opportunity Area Planning Framework (OAPF) sets out the planning, regeneration and design guidance that will lead to the creation of 26,500 new homes and up to 16,000 jobs across the boroughs of Barking and Dagenham and Havering, and a small part of Newham.The Mayor has identified 38 Opportunity Areas across the capital. Opportunity Areas are London's major source of brownfield land with significant capacity for new housing, commercial and other development linked to existing or potential improvements to public transport accessibility. The London Riverside Opportunity Area stretches from the Royal Docks to Rainham Marshes, a total distance of 12 kilometres.
