Garden Bridge: lease decision upheld by Lambeth councillors

Lambeth's overview & scrutiny committee has resolved by five votes to four not to block the council's controversial decision to allow South Bank land to be used for the Garden Bridge.

Thursday night's meeting was scheduled after the three Labour councillors for Bishop's ward – Kevin Craig, Ben Kind and Jennifer Mosley – requested that a recent decision to allow council-owned land on the South Bank to be sub-leased to the Garden Bridge Trust be 'called in' for detailed scrutiny.
