Plans by Network Rail to relocate the Union Theatre and create a row of new restaurants in the railway arches south of Union Street have been approved by Southwark planning officers.
Councillors are expected to approve plans for a 26-storey tower of luxury flats alongside the Shard next week, but there will be no on-site affordable housing provided by the scheme.
Figures published this week show that the number of alcohol related calls to the London Ambulance service in Borough and Bankside increased by 30 per cent in 2013 compared to the previous year.
