Extract from LVMF: Golden Jubilee/Hungerford Footbridges: downstream 17B.1 and 17B.2.

Foreground and Middle Ground
309 The intensification of river activity will be welcomed as a counterpoint to the distinct middle ground of Waterloo Bridge.

310 There are opportunities for additional development in the background if it is of a high quality, and if it makes a contribution to the existing characteristics and composition of the view. In particular, proposals for tall buildings in the Waterloo Opportunity Area should be designed to relate to and strengthen the composition of the group of buildings in the middle ground on the South Bank without overpowering other elements of the view.

311 High buildings seen in relation to St Paul’s Cathedral should be grouped with either the eastern or northern cluster of tall City buildings.
