Based on "An Essay on London New Towns" II.) 2 by Steen Eiler Rasmussen, I've conducted a (very) small survey on Google Earth - as a purely speculative exercise - simply to retrace Rasmussen's observations regarding an 'English tradition' of managing urban growth » by laying out 'New Towns' outside the urban district « II.) 3 focusing on London’s West End.

 

The twin City of London (commercial centre) and Westminster (political centre since 1060) » propagated itself by healthy offshoots « II.) 4 See: Abercrombie - for the time being without need or intent of restraint.  From 1580 Elisabethinian legislation urged to prevent urban sprawl » […] within three miles from any of the gates […] of the City of London « II.) 5 and restricted urban congestion by imposing a 'one family per house' policy as the urban ideal with long-term consequences. It was not until Charles’ II return from his continental exile in 1660, that developing the city became a - market driven - thriving real estate enterprise with the benefit of royal approval.

 

Bearing in mind that this English practise of urban planning [as described by Rasmussen], roots in the distribution of real-property (as a result of the feudal system VII.) 12) and the economic 'rationalisation' [as 'one' might refer to in order to avoid the term 'exploitation'] of social conditions, allows for some Google Urbanism™.

 

» At the time [Rasmussen refers to the eighteenth century] in London area a normal workman's house had a frontage of 1 rod. [16,5 ft or 5 m] When, therefore, a landowner wished to build a series of houses for his agricultural labourers, the surveyor could go out with his rod and immediately estimate how many houses there was room for. « II.) 6

 

In(tro)ducing the whole from its smallest part, reveals intention and circumstances of this » Parcelling-out technique at the grass roots of urban planning « . By emphasising its [bleak] virtues, Rasmussen identifies 'old English Measures' as indeed (pre)conditional for spatial organisation. Thus explaining the concept of terraced houses.

An example that matches the typology of the 'Terrace' as neatly as Coxwell Road (Eltham, Greater London, UK) at a density of still 38(!) houses per less than one acre, is hard to find though … [Sdoutz 2007]

Compare: 1855 London
Compare: Broadacre City



» […] 1 chain corresponds to the length of four house-frontages anywhere in East London. […] Not 2 per cent of the houses are substantially larger. « II.) 7

» We see from these proportions that the people who made the plans were working with dimensions with which they were intimately familiar. Chains and rods were the tools they used when marking out plots; [… See: London Metrology]
There were working 'traditions' for a whole system of harmonious dimensions, right from the division of the land into miles, furlongs and rods to the building of the houses in feet and inches. […]. « II.) 8 Resulting in a number of harmoniously scaled, undramatic town districts.


Rasmussen is apparently intrigued by the notion of an inherent (simple) organisational structure that is purely rational in design and conducive to standardisation. For it is uniform classification II.) 9 [side effect of enlightenment] in spatial and social terms, that attributes that 'unique' aesthetic quality, setting London [in Rasmussen's view] far apart from its continental peers. VI.) 10

Same for all, strictly segregated.

London Squares by 1799 according to Horwood's map | Franz Sdoutz 2007

The diagram above translates the visual information of Hollar's maps into Horwood's record - resulting in a plausible, though purely speculative 1666 London! [] [Sdoutz 2007]

* "Squares" in the above diagram SIMPLY include all urban spaces with "square" in their name by 1799. Therefore excluding all "places" "courts", "yards" "grounds" "greens" "gardens" "walks" "malls" "fields", "parks", "markets" "wharfs" "closes" … namely different spaces - with an assigned (primary) function, other than that of the formal residential square.

With the notable exception of: Covent Garden (Westminster), Hans Place (Kensington), Lincolns Inn FIelds (Lincoln's Inn Fields - Camden Town) and Moor Fields (Moorfields / Finsbury Circus - City). []

    3 In his essay Rasmussen discusses urban planning efforts during and after WW II  (resulting in the satellite cities [New Towns] of Greater London) as an historic parallel: » […] The idea of developing London by laying out 'New Towns' outside the urban district is not all a new one but a traditional method from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, forgotten in the nineteenth. « (page 440)

    [pages 442, 67 ff.]
    » After [a] drastic description of the bad housing conditions it is declared, that: "her maj., by good and deliberate advice of her council, and being also thereto moved by the considerate opinions of the lord mayor, aldermen, and other the grave wise men in and about the city, doth charge and strictly command all manner of persons, of what quality soever, they be, to desist and forbear from any new buildings of any house or tenement within three miles from any of the gates of the said city of London, to serve for habitation or lodging for any person, where no former house hath been known to have been in the memory of such as are now living; and also to forbear from letting or setting, or suffering any more families than one only to be placed, or to inhabit from henceforth in any house that heretofore hath been inhabitated." […] Breaches of the regulations about one family in each house involves penalty of imprisonment. « (page 68)

    For the entire proclamation see: 'The Beauties of England and Wales; or Delineations, Topographical, Historical, and Descriptive.' by Edward Wedlake Brayley [and others], published in London 1814 http://books.google.at/ [page 50 to 52]

    » The houses were as a rule constructed as purlin houses. The 16,5 foot facade corresponded to a roof timber of 16 feet and twenty two 9 inch bricks. In other words, good, common measurements. « (page 461) See: London Metrology
    7 According to Horwood's map from 1799 (page 460)
    Rasmussen's [preconceived] observation is ultimately depending on Horwood's spatial classifications for his map, which is scaled in chains! [ » Scale of 20 Chains or a quarter of a Mile. « http://www.motco.com/]
    Nonetheless, when looking at Horwood's maps closely [which are sufficiently accurate to disprove Rasmussen] it is all obvious that Georgian houses came in different sizes and shapes throughout London. Very much like today, outlines for commercial architecture were [pre]determined by marketability (size, typology), technological limitations (span width, foundation, economical ways of construction), legal requirements, and [sadly] very last by site. Well-tried and successful developments are and were simply copied and "transfigured" to match a given area … [merely assuming that planning procedures haven’t changed much since then.]
    But it is also true, even in a metric CAD practice (less focused on notions of integer divisions at the very core of old English units) that "nice measurements" complying to grid/ratio/numerology/systems are preferred by planers [and their historians]. See: London Metrology

    9 » The English house from this period [1780] is in accordance with the principles of Industrialism [… it] is not an individual work of art, but a refined industrial product brought to perfection through constant selection during repeated serial construction. « (page 224) » People would choose a house as they nowadays choose a car. « (page 229)

    12 'Besitz und Besessenheit - Strukturen des Grundeigentums in London [Property and possession - structures of real-estate in London]' by Nick Beech and Amy Thomas, published in German, translated by Nikolaus G. Schneider [pages 52-59] PDF
    » 1066 führte William der Eroberer in England einen radikalen Rechtstitel ein, der die Verschmelzung von territorialer Souveränität und privatem Anrecht am Land vorsieht und sich rechtlich bis heute erhalten hat. Faktisch bedeutet es, dass niemand außer der Krone "Eigentum" an Grund und Boden haben kann. Dennoch scheiterten nach dem Großen Brand von 1666 alle Pläne für einen Neuaufbau Londons an den Interessen der größtenteils aus Kaufleuten bestehenden Grundbesitzer der City, die sich weigerten, sich der Autorität der Krone zu unterwerfen. Dieser augenscheinliche Widerspruch löst sich auf, wenn man sich die unterschiedlichen Konzepte von Eigentum und Besitz des common law, also des im gesamten angloamerikanischen Raum üblichen richterrechtlichen Gewohnheitsrechts, und des civil law, des auf dem römischen Recht basierend Zivilrechts, vor Augen hält. […]
    Da nach dieser feudalen Struktur niemand außer der Krone "Eigentum" an Land beanspruchen konnte, führte man die Hilfskonstruktion des estate ein, eines für einen gewissen Zeitraum geltenden Rechtstitels an Grundbesitz. Die Einführung einer zeitlichen Dimension in das Konzept des Grundbesitzes dehnte die Bandbreite übertragbarer Rechte erheblich aus. Zudem ermöglichte es den Handel mit zukünftigen Rechtsansprüchen in einer juristischen Gegenwart, das Binden und Abspalten distinkter Rechte an Land sowie die zeitliche Zerlegung des estate mittels der Verfügungsdauer: zum einen in Form von freehold, der mit seinen zeitlich unbegrenzten Eigentumsrechten dem deutschen Eigentumsbegriff am nächsten kommt, oder zum anderen in Form von leasehold, der zeitlich begrenzten Pacht, die in etwa dem deutschen Erbbaurecht entspricht.
