Allies & Morrison and Levitt Bernstein take different stances on draft proposals
Proposals to encourage London boroughs to create their own definition of a tall building have prompted differing reactions from architecture practices.
The latest draft London Plan suggests that local authorities in the capital should have development plans that “define what is considered to be a tall building, the height of which may vary in different parts of the capital”.
In the absence of a local definition, the draft London plan gives a definition of 30m, unless a building is in the Thames Policy Area – where buildings of 25m or higher are classified as “tall”, or in most of the City of London, where the definition is 150m.
