TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR NEW STADIUM: ARCHWAY OPT NOT TO APPEAL HIGH COURT

The £400 million redevelopment of Tottenham Hotspur’s White Hart Lane home can now proceed after local business Archway Sheet Metal Works decided not to appeal a high court ruling.

Last month, Archway, located by the north stand, took Spurs to the high court in a challenge against relocation due to a compulsory land purchase order.

The high court rejected the challenge, and Archway have now announced they will not appeal.

It means the Premier League club, having successfully relocated 70 business around White Hart Lane already, can now press ahead with the development of a 56,000-seater stadium in time for the start of the 2018/19 season.

In a statement, Archway said: “Whilst we were disappointed and surprised by the judgement, we have decided not to appeal against his decision. 

“We have always been willing to negotiate with the club on a reasonable basis. We will continue to try to achieve a proper settlement by agreement if possible.”
