Biographical / Historical

London County Council accepted the axioms of the County of London Plan (1943) by John Henry Forshaw and Sir Leslie Patrick Abercrombie, in 1945. Thereafter they produced the Administrative County of London Development Plan (1951) . Effectively this was the statutory plan required by the Town and Country Planning Act (1947) . This provided the framework for city development, and its recommendations constituted the assumptions underlying planning decisions. The Plan was subjected to reviews, and in this respect proposals were collected and advanced for consideration. The Minister of Town and Country Planning approved the revised Plan in 1955, with the next review following in 1960.
