Westminster says Garden Bridge would be thrown out if it was ‘private development’

Despite its ‘significant harm’ to views, council says it should be approved tomorrow night because it is open to public

Westminster council has admitted that Thomas Heatherwick’s Garden Bridge would be thrown out if it was a private development – but is instead recommending it be approved because it is a “public facility”.

Planners at the council will vote tomorrow night on the plans, which have already been OK’d by the other planning authority involved in the £175 million scheme, Lambeth.

Trevor's comment: It gets my VOTE. What say ye???
