Urbanite is correct in that the tubs are there during the day. I'm sure it is also the case, as he says, that the area is a vehicle drop-off zone for the future hotel.
I'd be very surprised, however, if ths area has been granted planning consent as a car park. Maybe the planning experts at Southwark Council
will be able to quickly clarify.
