This seems to be proceeding at a snail's pace.

Yes, they both are unfortunately. They would have been perfect sites to build tall residential towers with large podiums for shopping.

I HATE the viewplanes legislation. It constricts building too much and the tabletop in the skyline is boring.

I think the ramparts rules is more responsible for the tabletop than the view planes. If it was just view planes alone, it theoretically could have pushed buildings not within a view plane to be higher.

I agree with this. I think there is value in seeing the harbour from the Citadel, but the ramparts rule is just archaic.
