3D modelling of constraints and growth capacity

City of London

Entrant's Summary: The City’s 3D Digital modelling project holistically maps the immensely complex, kinetic and interlapping three-dimensional heritage and protected views that criss-cross and are within the City and models geometric view protection policies as well as visualising view management guidance. The work informs 3D Growth Capacity modelling developing two tall building policy clusters in the Local Plan to accommodate the floorspace the City needs to maintain its international position whilst minimising heritage impacts. The digital modelling informs policies, strategies, assessment of schemes and demystifies planning policies for the public using digital data proactively for a more effective, efficient, understandable planning system
