Speaking to the AJ this morning, the borough's executive member for planning accused the mayor of bullying councils who did not agree with his vision for housebuilding.
His comments follow a speech yesterday in which Livingstone singled out Lambeth, telling delegates that the council was purposefully blocking badly needed housing schemes in the capital.
Livingstone said the council - which is run by a Liberal Democrat and Conservative coalition - was responsible for keeping housebuilding rates dangerously low in the inner-city borough.
But Andrew Sawdon, the councillor who heads up planning and regeneration, said Livingstone was too close to developers.
'His speech yesterday was completely over the top - he is just hectoring and bullying the councils that he does not like,' Sawdon said.
'He has a really close relationship with the developer St George and has attacked us in the past for turning down four of their schemes.
'The fact is we have a very large number of projects that will improve housing conditions on the borough, but they are all a little unglamorous,' he said. 'We are less keen on schemes such as [Broadway Malyan's] Vauxhall Tower, which at 50 storeys does not include any element of social housing at all.
'We are now stuck in a row with Livingstone until the next election, and I really can't see peace breaking out,' he added.
