Developing the South Bank of the Thames continues to spark considerable debate for Londoners. Rob Gregory has written us a helpful reminder of what London's south side is and what it can be, without looking north for inspriation and validation. He outlines some of the more contentious developments that have taken place there in the past fifty years, and concludes that the area should turn its focus inward on its communities.

With large-scale development proposals for Elephant and Castle, not to mention last year's announcement that the Tate Modern would expand and open up to the south, recent projects indicate that many share Gregory's vision for the South Bank, and that its time is not too far off.
