Will you give consideration to a London View Management Framework that focuses not on particular points but rather on unfolding views, which are revealed as one moves through the cityscape?

The current London Views Management Framework has a number of kinetic views which are intended to operate as the viewer moves through areas. Such views are included in the River Prospect and Town Scape views. The protected silhouettes of the World Heritage Sites are key protected kinetic views.

Improving the understanding and management of these kinetic views will form part of a future review of the London Views Management Framework Supplementary Planning Guidance.
