- Chelsea's £1 billion Stamford Bridge redevelopment is due to start next year

- Local residents opposed the plans claiming it will restrict sunlight on their homes

- The Blues purchased the air rights to Stamford Bridge and can begin work

Chelsea have moved closer to starting the £1 billion redevelopment of Stamford Bridge after securing a council deal to bypass the right to light injunction row which has threatened to block their plans.

A full cabinet meeting of Hammersmith and Fulham Borough Council gave the recommendations on Monday night which circumvented an earlier court injunction.

The injunction was imposed when well-heeled local resident Nicholas Crosthwaite, 69, and his family argued their right to light would be impaired by the redevelopment of the famous west London stadium.

A Chelsea spokesman said: "We are grateful to Hammersmith and Fulham Council for their decision, which is the latest step on our journey towards redeveloping of our historic home.

"The new stadium at Stamford Bridge will ensure the long-term future of the club in Fulham, create a world-class match-day experience for fans and allow us to increase our investment in the local community.

"It will be a new destination that compares to other great stadia around the globe and strengthen London's iconic status as the world's leading city of sport."

Workmen can now begin the £1 billion development of Stamford Bridge, which is 122 years old and one of the oldest stadiums in the world.

Once what the Councillors have agreed is enacted, only a judicial review can stop the work.
