Business plan for Garden Bridge 'fundamentally flawed'


For all those who work professionally the lack of due diligence on this vain wasteful saga is a precedent which not only blights all Londoners, but diminishes our country and our profession. To ensure confidence can be restored this project must be halted and an independent inquiry established with a remit to uncover the full facts surrounding the apparent systemic distortions by TfL and others . London’s procurement must also be reviewed and reformed to ensure better practices and opportunities are fairly delivered, on a level playing field, with improved access, transparently, and on a best value quality agenda, with design commissioning processes instigated only after a business case can be made, projects are aligned to the London Plan and in consultation with all relevant stakeholders and authorities. £60m cheques through the back door are not acceptable.
