British architect Sir Terry Farrell is to oversee plans to develop some of London’s suburban areas under a new regeneration scheme launched by the City’s Mayor Boris Johnson.

Terry, who has previously designed the MI5 building in Vauxhall has been offered the challenge to revitalise the outskirts of the city.

The Outer London Commission, established to advise on planning policy for the project, represents Johnson’s move away from previous mayor Sir Ken Livingstone who concentrated on building up inner city areas.

Sir Terry has said he will begin by looking at Croydon and areas of the Thames like Canary Wharf and Woolwich.

The Mayor has expressed his desire to improve quality of life through new green spaces and bringing underground rivers back to the surface.
