This plan shows a proposed new street near Bedford Square on land owned by the City of London. In the notes on the left side of the sheet the rationale behind the different colours is explained. Gentlemen's houses are to be built with gardens, at the opposite end of which will be houses for shopkeepers. The shops will have large fronts opening on to Tottenham Court Road. The rear wall of the shop keepers houses are to have no lights or other openings, presumably so as not to overlook the gardens of the gentlemen.
