Will the historic Stangate name for the area be lost when the Founder's Place development demolishes the block of flats at the corner of Royal Street
Survey of London Volume 23 Chapter 20 wrote:
The name Stangate, attached to a wharf and river stairs just south of the site of Westminster Bridge, dates at least from the mediaeval period, and it is possibly of Roman origin
Does it makes more sense to transfer that name to this new development, which is closer to the original location of Stangate Street and the gardens of Stangate Triangle. Or should Stangate remain as a name in Founder's Place as a reminder that the northern extension of Archbishops Park replaces the lost open space?
