Make sure to click on the link in order to find out how they designed this. Amazing stuff.

New London Architecture and the London Communications Agency have compiled a visual guide (pdf) to public bodies, councils, ministries etc that run our city and the relationships between them.

In light of the government’s proposal of a Decentralisation and Localism Bill, which aims to “devolve greater powers to councils and neighbourhoods and give local communities control over housing and planning decisions”, NLA and the LCA have put together this guide that makes clear the relationships between our governing bodies for reasons of accountability and transparency, with a view to considering their merit within the framework of the Bill. The guide is accompanied by a glossary that provides general, as well as contact, information for each of those bodies.
