The inquiry, which is expected to sit for a total of 12 days between now and mid-December, is being held at Hercules House near Lambeth North Station.

Planning inspector John Braithwaite has been appointed to report to communities secretary Eric Pickles on the proposed redevelopment of the Shell Centre.

Plans by developers Braeburn Estates to demolish most of the oil company’s office complex apart from the main tower and build new offices, shops and nearly 900 homes on the site were approved by Lambeth councillors in May.

In September the case was ‘called in‘ by the Department for Communities and Local Government due to concerns about the impact of the redevelopment on the setting of the Westminster world heritage site.

The inquiry heard opening submissions on Thursday.
