Planning & Traffic Management

Covent Garden Planning

Here are links to a number of publications and articles which provide a broad background to the history of the redevelopment of Seven Dials and Covent Garden as a whole. We've included some documents which we believe are not to be found anywhere else on the web. 

This section starts with currently relevant proposals for traffic management, first proposed by the Trust in 1991, to remove rat-running and through traffic. The traffic management pages are shown for each of the older documents.
