Council relaxes transport and housing targets for new Spurs ground

Haringay council has relaxed its housing and transport commitment to help secure Tottenham Hotspur Football Club’s plans for a new £400M stadium.

The council’s planning committee gave the green light to amended plans for the Northumberland Development Project in Tottenham, north London, which will deliver a new stadium, homes, business and employment.

They also agreed to changes to the Section 106 agreement - which outlines some of the wider benefits of the scheme including highways and transport improvements - to help make the scheme more financially viable. This includes Spurs abandoning a commitment to invest £15.5M in improving the surrounding area.

The planning committee’s unanimous decision to grant permission follows last week’s decision by the Greater London Authority to pour £27M into the scheme.

New plans will see:

  • a 56,000-capacity Premier League stadium
  • more than 280 new homes
  • a refurbished heritage square
  • public space including a podium for community events
  • improved highways and public transport
