'Tate Tower' judgement postponed until January

A High Court judge has postponed judgement on the appeal by Bankside residents against the planning inspector's decision to grant the go-ahead to a 20 storey tower next to Tate Modern.

A group of Bankside residents argued in court that their right to the enjoyment of their property under the European Convention on Human rights would be breached by London Town plc's planned development.

The judge took the view that any ruling on this case might set a precedent that could affect the planning process, and has reserved judgement until late January.
