Bermondsey & Old Southwark MP Simon Hughes has used a debate in Westminster Hall to urge Thames Water to avoid digging up the Alfred Salter Playground in Druid Street when it builds its proposed 'super sewer'.
The Ministry of Sound has asked the Local Government Ombudsman to investigate Southwark Council's handling of two planning applications for high-rise buildings on Newington Causeway near Elephant & Castle.
The controversy over the future of Hopton's Almshouses was raised in the House of Lords earlier this month when Lord Shipley tabled an amendment to the Localism Bill to force almshouse owners to consult their residents on any change of control.
Three years ago the Government spent £2.9 million converting one of the five former Eurostar platforms at Waterloo Station for use by domestic trains, but the platform has never been used, the House of Lords was told last week.
