A hearing to decide the future of Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium is due to begin tomorrow.

The High Court will hear the appeal against the decision to grant a Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) on Archway Sheet Metal Works in Paxton Road, Tottenham.

Eric Pickles, Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, granted Haringey Council permission to issue a CPO on Archway’s property, forcing them to move, in July 2014 but the Josif family, who own the company, appealed against the decision.

Since then the business has said it has been the subject of “animalistic” abuse and threats from Spurs fans angry at their refusal to be forcibly moved on to make way for the new stadium.

The business was also hit by a fire in November of last year which damaged large areas of both floors of the building.

The hearing had been due at the beginning of January but had to be postponed as not all parties were ready to proceed.

Archway Sheet Metal Works is the last remaining obstacle to ‘The Northumberland Development Project’ which is Tottenham Hotspur’s vision for a new 56,000 seat stadium and redevelopment of the surrounding area.

Planning permission for the project was granted by Haringey Council in 2010 but has been delayed several times with the new ground now unlikely to be ready for the start of 2017/2018 season.

The hearing is expected to last two days with a decision due in the next two to four weeks.
