Boris Johnson gives Tolworth Tower expansion the final green light
29 January 2016
Mayor of London Boris Johnson has given the final green light for building work to start on four new high-rise blocks next to Tolworth Tower.
A spokesman for the mayor’s office said: “As London’s population continues to grow apace, the mayor has been clear about the importance of building the homes the capital so urgently needs.
“This development not only provides a good mix of office and retail use, but will deliver 308 new homes for Londoners.
“His planning team have carried out a detailed assessment of the plans, which includes securing a £3m contribution to off-site affordable housing, and the mayor has agreed that in this case the decision by Kingston Council to approve the application should stand.”
