Councillors in Borough and Bankside have welcomed the decision of a Government inspector to uphold Southwark Council's proposal to require developers of purpose-built student accommodation to provide affordable housing.
Southwark Council has warned that Boris Johnson's proposals to raise £300 million towards the cost of Crossrail from a community infrastructure levy could seriously reduce the amount of development, including affordable housing, at Elephant & Castle.
A refrigerator discarded by a Southwark resident has been plucked from obscurity and given a starring role at the Brit Insurance Designs of the Year exhibition at the Design Museum.
