Lambeth Council vote to build Garden Bridge

Posted on

After great coverage by twitter page SE1 , Lambeth Council voted at 9pm this evening during a planning committee to go ahead with the building of the Garden Bridge at Waterloo which will cost tax payers a large sum.

This does not mean the bridge will be built however, as this falls to another meeting by Westminster Council who also have to vote next month.

Various Lambeth Councillors expressed these views about the bridge:

“It is not difficult to cross the river – lots of bridges nearby”
“I just do not think this proposal is going to add to the amenity and enjoyment of the South Bank”
“we need to beg the Garden Bridge Trust to do much more to genuinely work with local people”
