Tottenham submit planning application for new stadium

Tottenham have confirmed that the Northumberland Development Project planning application has been submitted to the London Borough of Haringey. The ambitious project is to be delivered on the current site and adjacent land, thus ending any concerns about a move out of the Borough while providing major regeneration of the area.

A change to final plans sees one major improvement to the stadium design - the inclusion of a single-tier stand.

Spurs, who have played home games at White Hart Lane since 1899, hope to move into the new ground within five years.

The new stadium will house a 56,250 capacity, with the promise that spectators will find themselves closer to the pitch than at any other comparable stadium in the UK.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy said: "The submission of the application is a hugely important step for the club.

"This is a multi-million pound investment in the area which brings with it housing, retail, a hotel, a supermarket, expanded community services and jobs and an exceptional public square. We have designed what will be a vibrant area 365 days a year and not a stadium with dead space surrounding it.

"Our desire from the outset has been to create a scheme of major benefit for local people and to deliver the most fan-friendly stadium in Europe.

"The inclusion of a new single tier stand combined with a fantastic stadium design demonstrates our absolute commitment to create the most atmospheric stadium for our supporters.

"Every fan will have an exceptional view of the action and will find themselves closer to the pitch than at any other comparable stadium.

"We have also embraced environmental sustainability as part of the plans, delivering a 40% reduction in carbon emissions against current building regulations which will make it one of the best performing of its kind in the UK.

"Tottenham Hotspur is proud of its roots in Haringey and the Northumberland Development Project will act as a powerful catalyst for the uplift of the wider area. We have had an exceptionally positive response to our consultation activities and I am personally delighted to have reached this stage."
