Tottenham's Trojan Horse? The book.


This blog is about the creation of Tottenham's Trojan Horse - a non-fiction graphic novel by Amanda Lillywhite and Dr Mark Panton due to be published in early 2018.

The book is based on one of two case studies in Dr Mark Panton's doctoral thesis ‘How do Stakeholders Influence Stadium-led Regeneration? The story from East Manchester and Tottenham’. It is funded by the Birkbeck School of Business, Economics and Informatics, University of London (UK).

In 2010 Haringey Council in London granted planning permission to Tottenham Hotspur Football Club for a new stadium and other linked developments. In 2012 Haringey unveiled regeneration plans for the borough that included demolition of homes and businesses to make way for a proposed fan’s walkway from a relocated train station to the site of the new stadium. A process that was already challenging for the football club, the council and the local community now became tortuous. Those most affected by the proposals felt left out of the decision making and had to find a voice.
