Tottenham Hotspur gains planning permission for new stadium | 22 September 2011
Tottenham Hotspur football club has pledged to invest £17 million into local transport and infrastructure as town planners accept its proposals to build a new stadium.
The agreement was thought to be the last in a series of hurdles the club had to undergo in order to gain permission to build its new £400 million, 56,250-seat stadium adjacent to the current White Hart Lane ground, fm-world.co.uk reports.
Plans for the new stadium also include the building of 200 homes, a 150-room hotel, a supermarket and a public square in which to hold local events across a site that will stretch over 20 acres.
Despite gaining planning permission from local councils, Tottenham Hotspur may not even build the club; as it is still challenging a decision to award the Olympic Stadium to West Ham for it to use from the 2014/2015 season onwards.
Speaking to constructionenquirer.com, a Spurs spokesperson explained: “The club can confirm that the Section 106 agreement in respect of the Northumberland Development Project has now been completed and planning permissions have been issued.
“This enables discussions with the London Borough of Haringey, the Mayor of London and central government to continue as we seek to make the development viable and deliverable. As always, we shall keep all our supporters updated as these progress.”
