The sale of the Rotherhithe Police Station building in Lower Road has been agreed in principle, Mayor of London Boris Johnson confirmed this week.
“Further approval will be sought before the property is marketed for disposal,” said the Mayor.
Mr Johnson has gone back on his earlier promise not to close any police station front counters until a replacement facility was provided in the same area.
All the Mayor will now say is that “every borough will have at least one 24 hour counter”.
A police inspector recently told Borough, Bankside and Walworth Community Council that Southwark’s 24-hour police station is likely to be Peckham.
