Administrative / Biographical History

Holford's report is a part of debates about how to develop the area around St Paul's cathedral after wartime bombing. Emberton disagreed with his proposals and offered alternatives (see related units of description field, 3.5.3). Holford's scheme was realised between 1961 and 1967, and lasted until the late 1990s when the area was redeveloped.
