Thanks Head of DM. Looked, but the results meant nothing to me. I think my concerns are really about the effect one building has on another. With all the planned tall buildings in that area, surely one must have an effect on the other, so measurements and interpretations done at the planning stage may be okay, but the result may change when another building goes up.
My pleasure. In answer to your question, wind modeling includes the baseline (existing built form) plus any planning permissions that are implemented (made a start however small) or capable of being built. This gives proper consideration of the impacts of tall building on the environment. New proposals have to take account of built form and planning permissions in the same way. The result is you have a reliable model even in an emerging or changing urban landscape like Blackfriars Road
