Radical changes to Westminster's planning blueprint have been approved that will curb commercial and leisure development.
The revised unitary development plan, approved on Monday, enshrines Westminster's hard line on tall buildings, ruling there are "no appropriate areas for tall buildings unless they are of exceptional quality and design".

Other revisions to the land use plan include an increase in affordable housing targets from 25% to 30%, with 5% set aside for key workers.

The revised plans underline the need to restrict development in "stress areas", such as Soho and Covent Garden, but will review the case for expansion of the boundaries of these areas and the arguments for extending or restricting hours.
