Townscape View: St. James’s Park Bridge

Viewing Location 26A: Assessment Point 26A.1

Page 222: Paragraph: 428

“In particular, buildings that appear above the central third of the Duck Island trees would damage the viewer’s ability to see these groups of buildings in conjunction with the landscaped foreground and should be refused.”

OBSERVATION / QUESTION: The statement is a mixture of objective and subjective judgement. "One third" is objective, but measuring the 'width' of the trees on Duck Island is somewhat subjective. Winter? Summer? Before or after they are cut (etc?).

QUESTION: How would they damage the viewer's ability to see these groups of buildings?
