I agree that the view to the Infirmary from RHK terrace is not much at the moment, but it could be restored, as the NCR vista to the Wellie Monument was restored recently, pic below.

Other than that, gunter I’m surprised you’re fixed on the idea of developing the boundary of the gardens. The cone of vision was the right thing to do. The context of RHK is that it’s a 17th cen public building in a natural landscape setting. It can be argued that development has come to close to the building and its gardens, or that the site has been overdeveloped (though an argument for 6 years ago) but there’s no basis, in historical context terms, for developing along the edge of the formal garden.
