London Family Could Derail New £1 Billion Stamford Bridge

Stamford Bridge West Stand

The Crosthwaite family live in a cottage right on the outskirts of Stamford Bridge and have been doing so for 50 years.

With London teams' Tottenham redeveloping White Hart Lane and West Ham moving into the 57,000 Olympic Stadium, this is a much-needed desire for the club.

The family, who have lived in the three-bedroom house for 50 years, are understood to have rejected a six-figure sum in compensation from the football club.

They're relying on a United Kingdom law called "Right to Light", which stipulates that "the owner of a building with windows that have received natural daylight for 20 years or more is entitled to forbid any construction or other obstruction that would deprive him or her of that illumination".

A three-bedroom property on the same street as the Crosthwaites sold for £1.18m previous year.

Their property sits in the neighbouring Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, which they say is firmly opposed to the development, so Chelsea's attempt to enlist the help of Hammersmith and Fulham council to sidestep their objections is not in the public interest and possibly illegal.

Tom Hanks is Executive Editor Ben Bradlee who holds his ground when Mrs Graham tries to intervene in the nitty gritty of coverage. Just after the New York Times did an expose on the study, McNamara sort of leans on Graham to not do the story in her paper.

But recent months have brought considerable added costs and complications to the project, which will require Chelsea to play in a temporary home while Stamford Bridge and the surrounding buildings are demolished and the new stadium is constructed.

They would then lease the land back to Chelsea and railway operators Network Rail, meaning the property owners would be entitled to compensation but would not be able to prevent the redevelopment.

They could even use that argument to persuade Hammersmith and Fulham council to acquire the Crosthwaites land if it contributes to their mission.

The plans have already been granted approval by the Mayor of London, with a consultation of 13,000 residents gathering 97.5% support. Other local residents have already been compensated over their "right to light".

The Premier League club is pretty insistent on getting the stadium upgraded, saying it will "further enhance the economic, cultural and social services they provide".
