Garden Bridge

Commenting on the Mayor’s decision not to sign a guarantee to support the Garden Bridge, Iain Tuckett (chief executive of Coin Street Community Builders) says:

“Coin Street Community Builders has always said that decisions on how public money is allocated and whether the Garden Bridge should go ahead should be made by the relevant public authorities. Sadiq Khan inherited a situation where a large amount of public money had already been invested in this scheme and we understand the reluctance to see that money wasted. However we welcome the Mayor’s decision to end uncertainty and ensure that further time and money is not expended.”
