Only time can tell how the park will be used, and what people will do to it, but at the moment, it looks as if it really will become the 'special place with its own clear identity' which the LDDC

The LDDC was formally established in July 1981, covering 5,000 acres of largely redundant port land and docks.
The setting up of the LDDC did of course offer the local authorities the opportunity for a new regeneration partnership with government.
The diversion of view between the LDDC and local authorities in the first half of the 1980s was further indicated by very different views about local planning of Docklands' areas.
In recent years, fortunately, there has been a growing together of the local authority and LDDC approaches and there is now a much greater commitment to partnership than there was in the early years.
The LDDC itself has changed through its life, trying to adapt to new issues and pressures as they emerge.
What seems clear, however, is that the market-led approach of the LDDC, which welcomed the massive growth of office accommodation in the later 1980s, would no doubt have met a barrage of planning restrictions under a municipal non-Enterprise Zone regime.
