EPL Side Tottenham Baffled By Government's Delay To Stadium Go-Ahead

Tottenham is "growing increasingly frustrated by the length of time it is taking public officials to make a key decision" on its plans to build a new stadium, according to Tom Collomosse of the London EVENING STANDARD. Tottenham hopes to move into a £400M ($670M), 56,000-seat ground in time for the start of the '17-18 season but, in order to make progress, it is "awaiting news from the Department for Communities and Local Government." The club is "involved in a wrangle with a local metalwork business, Archway Sheet Metal Works." It needs to be granted a Compulsory Purchase Order by Secretary of State for DCLG Eric Pickles. If Pickles ruled in Tottenham’s favor, "it would allow relocation terms for the family-run business to be determined." Tottenham believes that there will be a verdict this month but is "perplexed that it has taken such a long time for DCLG to draw its conclusions." The saga "began in April 2013." DCLG said only that "the matter was under consideration, and would give no timescale about a decision" (EVENING STANDARD, 6/3).
