High Court Greenlights M&S Challenge Against Government’s Refusal for Marble Arch Store Redevelopment

Today, the High Court granted Marks & Spencer’s (M&S) permission to challenge the government’s denial of planning permission for revamping their store at Marble Arch.

M&S sought this review because they believe the government misinterpreted planning rules, citing heritage and environmental concerns as reasons for rejection.

Stuart Machin, M&S’s CEO, expressed satisfaction with the Court’s decision, noting that the existing store couldn’t be refurbished. This marks the beginning of a lengthy process to contest the government’s decision, which obstructs the sole retail-focused transformation on Oxford Street.

Despite investing and having promising plans for a modern, eco-friendly building, Machin expressed surprise at facing this challenge after securing two years of support and approvals.

However, M&S is unwavering in its commitment to ensuring a brighter future for Marble Arch, benefiting their loyal local customers and the community.
