Oh deep joy!
We've now got a Guardian reading, intellectual from the Museum of London with ideas of turning the Square Mile into a cultural hub to mirror South Ken & the South Bank!
The Barbican & Museum of London want to transform the City. They want it to be a place with more green spaces, public art and events; less traffic and wider pavements; and somewhere people will come knowing they can always visit a museum, have some food and see a film, a show, an exhibition or a concert.
No mention of repairing some of the pot holed roads that resemble a warzone...
No doubt Taxi trade orgs will be frozen out of any forthcoming consultations.
Cultural hub' proposed for London's Square Mile
Barbican and Museum of London propose to join forces to turn financial district into 'exciting, accessible, open place'
