The Court of Appeal has granted permission to appeal against the planning approval for the demolition and redevelopment of the Elephant and Castle shopping centre.

The permission to appeal follows an unsuccessful High Court challenge in October 2019, when Mr Justice Dove refused to quash the planning approval after a two-day hearing.  No date has yet been set for the Court of Appeal hearing.

The case raises a number of important legal issues regarding how local authorities handle planning applications.
