Driscoll House, arguably the most imposing and interesting building on New Kent Road, could reopen as a hostel if plans are approved by councillors next week.
Plans to install girders from the ruins of New York's World Trader Center as an artwork in Potters Fields Park to coincide with the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks have been put on hold amid mounting controversy.
A long-running planning saga moved closer to resolution this week when Southwark's planning committee unanimously resolved to grant planning permission for Berkeley Homes' One Tower Bridge development on the Potters Fields coach park site.
