Tottenham's planned building of a new 56,000-seater stadium have hit a stumbling block over fears from local residents.

As part of the development Spurs want to build a 'Wembley-style' walkway, demolishing several local business and houses in the process.

Officials at the North London club believe they've out-grown White Hart Lane, and are looking to press ahead with building their £400million new home.

The site is situated adjacent to their current stadium and the Europa League club have already acquired the land.

The full report in the Guardian addresses the problems facing current occupiers of space that Tottenham wish to redevelop.

Several local business owners are objecting the plans, and will look to put as many obstacles in the way as possible for Spurs to complete the move.

Tottenham will be looking to raise the approxmately £400million pound needed by selling naming rights and borrowing substantial amounts from the bank.

Along with the stadium Spurs want to attach several mega-stores, as well as building a podium around the exterior of the ground - similar to rivals Arsenal.

With Spurs splashing the cash this season, their free-spending days will have to come to an end whilst they finance the move.
