An opponent of Squire & Partners’ Shell Centre development has launched a legal challenge in the High Court. Activist and writer George Turner claims communities secretary Eric Pickles’ decision to approve the £1.3 billion scheme last month was flawed and will unleash a planning free-for-all on the South Bank. He served the challenge on Pickles, as well as the mayor of London, Lambeth council, Shell and developer Braeburn Estates, a joint venture between Qatari Diar and Canary Wharf Group. The defendants now have two weeks to respond. They are expected to contest the validity of Turner’s challenge.
