Extract from LVMF: River Prospect: Waterloo Bridge Waterloo Bridge: upstream 15A.1 and 15A.2

Foreground and Middle Ground
262 New development in the foreground and middle ground should not compromise the existing riverscape character or obscure significant landmarks.

263 New clusters of tall buildings may emerge within the Waterloo and Vauxhall/Nine Elms Opportunity Areas. Tall buildings are already consented at Vauxhall/Nine Elms and it is important that further proposals are designed to relate to and strengthen the composition of the emerging cluster there. New buildings visible to the right of Millbank Tower should not detract from the dominance of the Palace of Westminster in the view.

264 The full length of the Palace of Westminster is afforded a Protected Silhouette when viewed from any position at or between Assessment Points 15A.1 and 15A.2 (as defined by the purple lines on the photographs).
