Tottenham Hotspur have been given the go-ahead to remove the final trader standing in the way of their £400million stadium redevelopment.

Last week, Haringey Council’s Cabinet agreed to carry out a compulsory purchase order (CPO) of land belonging to Archway Sheet Metal Works, enabling Spurs to build a new 56,000-seater stadium in its place.

The family-run business currently operates from a number of units in Paxton Road, which runs parallel to the North Stand of Spurs’ White Hart Lane stadium.

It is the only business in the redevelopment area that has yet to agree to a handover of its land to Spurs, as part of the Northumberland Development Project, which also includes plans for new flats and a supermarket.

At the Cabinet meeting on March 20, councillors also approved proposals to hand over council-owned land, situated in the redevelopment area, to Spurs.

Under the plans, a proportion of the Wingate Trading Estate, in High Road, owned by the council, will also be transferred to the club.

In addition, Spurs will also gain ownership of Paxton Road and Bill Nicholson Way, which have yet to be transferred.

It is understood the CPO will take effect in around 12 months.
