Arthur Gelling and Tom Green from landscape architects Hyland Edgar Driver, talk through their development of a Public Realm Design Guide for Nine Elms on the South Bank. The Guide will incorporate the new Linear Park which will form a ribbon of public green-space running from Lambeth Palace to Battersea Power Station and Park. As well as serving the new communities in Nine Elms, the Linear Park will establish a new environment for children’s play, promoting healthy, active lifestyles, leisure and nature. The Public Realm Design Guide will outline the aspiration to make Nine Elms on the South Bank an international exemplar in public realm design within the context of high density urban districts. The guidance sets out how the partnership will achieve a shared vision for liveable streets and public spaces, for people, businesses and wildlife.
