I'm back for some controversy and input

Ok there are 3 main policies that British planners have used to channel London's growth into compact forms of development (as opposed to the sprawling development seen in the U.S.). The 3 British policies are: (1) establishing a Greenbelt around central London, (2) Regulating new retail development, and (3) building Docklands to accommodate more offices, retail and residences within London. Correct?? Do u you think any of these 3 would have any chance working in U.S. metropolitan regions.

I think that it would take some getting used to, the setup is not something that americans are acustomed to. And offices on Docklands?? i don't know, can't think right now, GO YANKEES!!!
let me know what you think

It sounds like a good plan I guess...

Portland currently has a greenbelt around the city and the results have been a more urban compact environment. So it can work in America.
