Each site identified single or multiple options that would optimise development on the site. The illustrated options considered the optimisation of capacity on the site based on identified constraints from the urban context, site history, planning policy, and engineering risks. The study results assume that the same methodology and deliverables will be adopted for further TfL sites, throughout London.
