  1. Brilliant. One persistent campaigner is always on to me about the wind effects of high blocks at pedestrian levels. Have you come across any research or circumstantial evidence on this matter?

  2. Cllr Tony Belton> I have no particular information. However as Upper Richmond Road is a sort of “canyon”. It does not seem to me that a couple of buildings might change drastically the current wind effect (contrary to, let say two 42-storey skyscrapers in the middle of Victorian and Edwardian houses).
    Although would it create a precedent for taller buildings on the street, the addition of future constructions might definitely have impacts.
