A new paper launched today, Heathrow Garden City, proposes a re-invention of the pioneering Garden City concept on the Heathrow airport site. Authored by Graeme Bell, this audacious paper argues that Heathrow occupies a strategic situation in the outer London suburbs adjoining the Green Belt and is ideally situated for such a proposal, which could provide homes for up to 30,000 people.
Adding to the debate over improving Heathrow comes this rather radical proposal to ditch the site and turn the enviable location into better housing for Londoners. No word on where they’ll fit the replacement airport, though.
