High-quality environment for workers, residents and visitors to the Chancery Lane area

Burns + Nice were commissioned by the Chancery Lane Association (CLA) to produce a Strategic Development Plan for the Chancery Lane area.

Following approval by the City of London and funding from Transport for London the subsequent Chancery Lane Area Enhancement Strategy has seen the creation of a new public realm along Chancery Lane including the widening and repaving of footpaths, an exercise to declutter the street and the resurfacing of the highway. This has created a high quality street environment for workers, residents and visitors to the area. The improvements built upon the unique character of the Chancery Lane area as the City's legal quarter, emphasising its rich architectural and cultural heritage and encouraging its growing retail and leisure facilities. The project was shortlisted in 2013 for the New London Awards - Public Spaces.
