The Custom House (7)

Following my last post, I have discovered that I am behind the times. The City of London Corporation has indeed already recognised the weaknesses of what was proposed for the redevelopment of the Custom House and has endorsed the alternative plans put forward by the Georgian Group before Christmas as economically viable. So, hats off to the Georgian Group for not only effectively objecting to the scheme on historical grounds at the Inquiry, but for then putting forward a realistic and fully costed alternative, which retains the integrity of the historic fabric and will allow much better public access. Let’s hope the current owners will move forward on the basis of the Georgian Group’s proposals.
