First impressions – after a brief look at other pages, I went straight to the Area Index. My quick observations:

  • Islington – map p76 – shows growth areas and our Town Centre – no projects in the borough are listed
  • interestingly they don’t identify Andover’s masterplan
  • Haringey – map p61 – doesn’t identify our Town Centre or the Park as Metropolitan Open Land (as I far as I could determine)
  • Hackey – map p55 – doesn’t include our Town Centre – includes King’s Crescent Estate as a project.
