The Labour London Mayor has just reviewed the proposed 14-storey development of Canbury Business Park.
Conservative councillors at Kingston Council performed a dramatic U-turn last week, backing down on the abolition of paper parking visitor scratch cards in the face of a large Lib Dem petition and residents' concerns.
