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
