Extract from LVMF: River Prospect: Tower Bridge 10A.1

Foreground and Middle Ground
186 Landmarks which enable an appreciation of the scale and geography of London should not be obscured by inappropriate development in the foreground. This applies to The Monument, in particular, which is closely associated with Tower Bridge in the view, owing to their proximity and visibility. This relationship should be maintained.

187 Views from this place include the relationship between the Tower of London and the City in the background. It is important that the background of the landmark in these views is managed sensitively. Development should not breach the skyline of the four towers of the White Tower or its castellations.

188 It is anticipated that the cluster of tall buildings in the City of London and the cluster of tall buildings at London Bridge Station will be consolidated over time, and will add considerably to the character and stature of the view. Any proposed building which would add to the skyline, must take account of the way it relates to existing skyline features.
