Spurs to submit new stadium plans

London football club Tottenham Hotspur is to submit a revised planning application for a new stadium later this week, it has been revealed.

The original design was scrapped after Haringey Council raised concerns about the impact of the development, sited adjacent to the current stadium on White Hart Lane.

Club officials said the new plan took these fears into account by retaining and refurbishing the Grade II-listed Warmington House, along with three other buildings.

The project includes plans to expand the stadium’s capacity to 56,250 and build houses, a hotel and a supermarket nearby.

“Schemes of this magnitude involve much time and effort by many parties and we are extremely grateful to everyone who has taken part in the consultation process to date,” said Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy.

“There is undoubtedly huge support for the development and for retaining the club in the borough. Following the consultation period on these new plans we look forward to proceeding to a Haringey Council planning committee to determine the application shortly.”

The club had originally hoped to move into the new stadium in time for the 2012-13 season.
