Experts, experts, experts.
That’s the motto of the village that’s currently being built on a piece of land on the outskirts of London’s South Bank.
Called ‘the world’s first traffic-free village’, the project, which has a projected opening date of 2020, is being funded by the UK government and a consortium of local authorities including the British Association of Village Consultants (BAVC), and will be the first of its kind in the world.
The £40 million ($55 million) project aims to bring together a mix of experts, engineers, architects, landscape architects and others to help the village design and construct its way around London’s traffic grid.
It is a project of the UK Government’s ‘World Village 2020 Strategy’, which aims to develop a ‘Worldwide Village for Future Generation’, and the UK has been keen to create a world village for the past 10 years.
The village will include a number of different buildings, including a large green garden, a community hall, two restaurants and a bar.
The area will also include the village’s own sports centre, a playground, a gymnasium, and even a community cafe.
The plan is for the village to be completely free of traffic in the area, as the UK’s traffic is not limited to the roads that link the UK to other parts of the world, but it will also be able to run on a mix for pedestrians and cyclists, and to create alternative ways for local people to enjoy their time on the streets.
The new village will be built on land that will be used for a large park, which will be opened up to visitors and local residents.
It will be located near the town of Crouch End, and is a £20 million ($31 million) scheme.
There will also, of course, be a large pedestrianised walkway along the edge of the park.
“This village will have the potential to be a beacon of hope for Londoners and the wider world,” said British Transport Secretary Andrew Adonis.
“A village of this size will be one of the first that has been built anywhere in the UK and it will create a new kind of village in a small area that could be a catalyst for other villages to follow suit.”
It’s a vision that has already caught the eye of local architects, and will help to shape the future of this village.
One of the key architects involved with the village is the British-based architecture firm Gendler, which specializes in community gardens and sustainable design.
“It’s a very exciting development for the area and we’re looking forward to working with Gendlers team to make this a reality,” said Richard Gendelman, a Gendel Architecture partner and a principal at the firm.
“So it will be a place where people will go if they want to go out and have a nice meal or enjoy the outdoors. “
“People will walk and cycle in this village because it’s such a safe, safe environment. “
“There will be an outdoor fitness centre and a lot of gardens in the village so that there is a great environment for children and families to have fun and enjoy their summer.” “
A huge amount of work has already been put into the village. “

“I think it will take time to get it all right, but we’re really pleased with the progress that’s been made,” said Adonis, “I’m sure that people who live in the town and the surrounding area will really enjoy it.”
There’s a lot to do to make it happen and that’s one of those things that people want to do, especially with such a big project, but as it’s been decided by local people, they will have to make the most of what they have.
“They’re the people who will be deciding when it’s done,” said Gendell, “They’ve got a huge amount to get right, and we want to make them feel as comfortable as possible.”
