Expert Answer:

A wide variety of steps were taken to clean up the city of London in the 19th century. Explicit efforts were made in order to decongest neighbourhoods, plant trees in open spaces, cut down on the pollution and create a better landscape for the city. Large blocks of apratments were built, emulating what had been done in cities like New York and Berlin which had a similar housing problem. The onset of the First World War also saw the introduction of rent control which was aimed at easing the effects of the chronic housing shortage in London. The drive to improve the atmospheric conditions of London also saw the creation of a 'Green Belt' around the metropolis.
