Tottenham Hotspur £400m stadium plans given boost

Plans to build a new stadium at Northumberland Park for Tottenham Hotspur have been given a boost after a Compulsory Purchase Order was confirmed by the government.

The Department for Communities and Local Government confirmed the CPO for the project. Tottenham Hostpur said it had “refined detailed design of the stadium in order to ensure it is future-proofed and optimised” while awaiting the CPO confirmation.

More than 95 per cent of the 3 ha site has been acquired by agreement and work has already begun on the first of the three phases of the redevelopment plan.

McLaren Construction was appointed as main contractor to build a new supermarket and commercial/educational space to the north of its proposed new stadium.

The CPO was requested to allow the final two phases to proceed and follows a public inquiry.

Communities Secretary Eric Pickles said:  “This scheme is supported by the locally determined development plan for the area and has received strong local support.”
