I never got around to calling anyone, but last month I emailed the mayor's office to ask about the hole in the ground (prompted by an article on this site). I got this reply yesterday:
I would like to thank you for your email to the Mayor dated 12 February 2009. The Mayor's office has asked that we reply to your email with reference the Mayor's street tree initiative.
Please accept my apologies for the delay in my reply to you.
I can inform you that we are in the process of arranging for a tree to be planted at Tower Bridge Road
Once again, thank you for taking the time to contact us regarding this matter and I trust that this addresses your concerns. Should you require assistance with any further issues, please feel free to contact us.

So, that's sorted, then. (Ha ha.)
