Spurs stadium plans approved

spurs stadium approved 2by3

Tottenham Hotspur Football Club has received planning permission to build its 61,000-seater stadium in north London.

Spurs, currently fifth in the Premier League, received the green light from Haringey Council for changes to its proposed scheme.

The project will include a retractable pitch as well as 600 homes, a 180-bed hotel and a community health centre.

American football games will be played at the stadium as well as league and cup football.

Haringey Council leader Claire Kober said: “We’re delighted to see these exciting plans approved which will support our long-term regeneration plans and write a new chapter in Spurs’ long and successful history in our borough.

“These proposals are about more than just a new stadium – they bring much-needed new jobs and a boost to the economy, with thousands more fans spending money in local businesses.

Ten listed buildings will be restored, including Warmington House on Tottenham High Road, which will become an interactive club museum.

Mace was last month appointed construction partner for the project.
