Arsenal FC's plans for a new stadium in north London have received a mixed reaction, says the local council. Islington received 2,200 responses to its consultation on the HOK Sport design. Some 381 people supported the arena, 436 opposed it, and two petitions against the scheme were also sent in. Safety was the main concern along with design and quality of life, transport, traffic and parking fears. Plans for a nearby waste transfer depot were also opposed.
