A bookmaker will take the council to court this week as it appeals against a decision to refuse it a betting licence.

Betting firm Paddy Power applied to Haringey Council for a licence to open a new Wood Green branch in April, but the application was refused following widespread objection from residents.

The company wanted to open a shop on the site of the disused Lordship pub at 606 Lordship Lane, near the junction with Dunbar Road.

However, the council’s licensing committee said that it felt a new betting shop on would add to anti-social behaviour problems in the area.

The appeal hearing will be heard at Tottenham Magistrates Court on Wednesday.
