Comment: Boris needs to take Andrew Boff and Create Streets a lot more seriously

We at Bugle Towers are fans and broad supporters of the Mayor of London. We have written before and remain concerned over a lack of distinctiveness from his predecessor over high rise building, especially in outer London. Andrew Boff AM is a huge champion of street based developments, as is the Mayor of London - at least on paper - but notnecessarily in practice.

At Mayor's Question Time on 23 July Andrew Boff took Boris to task and thought he'd secured a concession and made some progress.


However returning to the matter on 17 September Andrew Boff was clearly annoyed by the tenor and content of the the Mayor's reply and somewhat dismissive attitude. Many supported Boris amongst other reasons on the back of his claim that, unlike Livingstone, he wouldn't just be a Zone One Mayor. One the attitude to outer London suburban development it's not always easy to see much to differentiate the current Mayor from his predecessors.

We wish Mr Boff well is tenaciously pursusing this matter on behalf of Londoners and fully support his efforts.


Finally is this the same Cat Hill high rise development that Boris prayed in aid as one of the few examples of low rise 'street based' developments in suburban outer London? It is no such thing and was rightly condemned by Theresa Villiers MP.
