Shell shop plans in doubt

Shell is considering appealing against the surprise rejection of its Waterloo redevelopment plans.

The 160m plan to turn the base of the Shell tower next to Jubilee Gardens into a shopping complex has been rejected by Lambeth Council.

Nearby local residents had objected to the threatened competition to the existing shops in Lower Marsh. The Shell plan included provision for a small supermarket. Residents in the new County Hall flats had objected to the loss of open space and possible noise problems.

The project is a joint venture between Bluewater developer Lendlease and Shell. An appeal by Shell to the Secretary of State is expected to result in a long public inquiry.
