Extract from LVMF: Linear View: King Henry VIII’s Mound, Richmond to St Paul’s Cathedral 9A.1

Foreground and Middle Ground
176 A Protected Vista has been defined between the Assessment Point and St Paul’s Cathedral. Development that exceeds the threshold plane of the Landmark Viewing Corridor should be refused. Development near the Protected Vista should not compromise the viewer’s ability to recognise and appreciate the Cathedral. It should not dominate the landmark, or cause a canyon effect. Landmark Lateral Assessment Areas are included as part of the Protected Vista to strengthen foreground and middle ground management of the view.

177 Atmospheric conditions have a considerable effect on the visibility of the landmark due to the length of the view. It is essential that development in the background of the view is subordinate to the Cathedral and that the clear sky background profile of the dome remains.
