According to a report in the UK’s Daily Mail, Wandsworth Council in south-west London has granted planning permission for the estimated $30 million (£20m) scheme, which would provide space for 114 cars, as well as offices, bathrooms and five-star accommodation for staff.

The super car park will have two basement floors and six above ground. More info
