Small business owners in Tottenham fear a huge regeneration scheme could push them out of the area and destroy their livelihoods. Local enterprises, some of which have been run by the same family for generations, say their futures are at risk from the £1 billion High Road West development – a plan to build thousands of homes on sites opposite Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

I think these are fair points. We need to support the existing community and not just drive them out and replace them

Just a further reminder that nothing stops the ENIC property portfolio company from achieving its dream unfortunately the FC died some years ago.

Sadly gentrification is a fact of life in London.

Tottenham has been in serious need of regeneration for many years. They definitely need to knock down buildings and rebuild the area. They do also need to support local businesses and families around the area though.
