Extract from LVMF: London Panorama: Greenwich Park 5A.1 and 5A.2

Foreground and Middle Ground
144 Development on the river edge at Deptford should help to reinforce the composition of the existing view

145 The relationship between Tower Bridge, the Monument to the Great Fire and St Paul’s Cathedral are important elements of the view. Development should preserve and enhance this visual relationship when seen from the Assessment Points.

146 Views of St Paul’s Cathedral and Tower Bridge are paramount townscape features in the view. A Protected Vista between Assessment Point 5A.2 and St Paul’s Cathedral recognises the requirement to protect the visual relationship between these two landmarks.

147 The composition of the view would benefit from further, incremental consolidation of the cluster of taller buildings at Docklands and the City of London.

148 The dome and peristyle of the cathedral are seen against clear sky in this view.The current level of definition should remain and where possible be enhanced.
