The Greater London Authority's (GLA) London Plan sets the city’s planning framework with policies relating to the massing, density and height of new developments. These apply across every borough and a 3D digital platform, such as VU.CITY, can demonstrate the much-needed context and impact of every new project in a visual and easily digestible way.
VU.CITY London is the largest, most accurate interactive model available of the capital, helping the built environment make better, faster and more cost-efficient planning and design decisions about the city’s future. VU.CITY London covers the entire 1,619 sq km to 15cm of accuracy, with a combination of functionality and data.
Over 80% of London boroughs already use VU.CITY: improving pre-app through open, transparent conversations about density and height; giving planning submissions and committees better insight on how a scheme will work in context; and allaying anxieties by helping citizens understand a scheme’s impact and merits in public consultations.
Architects such as Foster + Partners, BDP, Allford Hall Monaghan Morris, Bennetts Associates and Farrells have also seen the many benefits of using VU.CITY on projects. VU.CITY London has helped them improve communications with clients, win contracts, and create an inclusive narrative with all stakeholders – local authorities, project teams, politicians and communities – on how schemes will work and succeed.
