A judicial review into the Elephant and Castle regeneration scheme due to go take place this week has been adjourned by the High Court.

The hearing, which had been slated for Wednesday and Thursday this week, will now take place at a date later in the year to be confirmed – likely in September.

The decision is believed to be an administrative one rather than as a result of any party involved.

Although the shopping centre landlord and developer, Delancey, has said delays to the eventual demolition cause uncertainty to traders, campaigners have strongly refuted this implicit criticism, arguing: “If they gave us a scheme that included space for Elephant traders and enough proper social housing we would not be in this position.”
