Detailed plans for the redevelopment of the area between Parliament Street and Cannon Row are now well advanced. Construction work is expected to start next year for completion in 1990. The overall cost is estimated at £31·5 million at cash prices. Plans for the second phase, comprising the area between Cannon Row and the river, are still at an early stage. It would be premature to give a figure of the likely cost.
