High Court upholds minister's refusal of 32-storey west London tower on heritage grounds

The High Court has upheld the former housing secretary's refusal - against an inspector's recommendation - for a 32-storey mixed-use tower in west London, ruling that the minister was entitled to reach a different conclusion from the inspector in assessing the scheme's harm to nearby heritage assets, including Kew Gardens.
