Wandsworth Guardian: Labour says locals will be put before developers

25 October 2022 0

Wandsworth Labour said developers’ interests will not be put ahead of locals after taking control of the authority for the first time in 44 years in May. Schemes like the famous Embassy Gardens -with a Sky Pool in the air between two buildings – were approved under the council’s old Conservative leadership but have long faced criticism from Labour councillors.
