High Court dimisses challenge to Tottenham Hotspur stadium CPO

Tottenham Hotspur have been given the all-clear to begin planning a new stadium after a local business’ appeal against a compulsory purchase order was rejected by the High Court.

The application against the CPO from Archway Sheet Metal Works was thrown out, paving the way for the Premier League club’s proposed 56,000-seater stadium.

The Department for Communities and Local Government had confirmed the CPO for the £400m stadium project last July after 95 per cent of the site had been acquired by agreement.

But the family owned sheet metal company began legal proceedings to challenge the order last September, delaying the prospective opening of the new stadium.

The club had intended to move into its new home in time for the start of the 2017/18 season, but it is now unlikely to do so until 2018/19.

McLaren Construction has already built a new supermarket and commercial/educational space to the north of the stadium site
