Now confirmed by Archway that they will not appeal.

Within the next couple of months, Spurs will finally take possession of the one remaining plot of land that they need to build the new stadium.

Exciting times.

Northumberland Development Project (NDP) Update

The Club has been actively engaged with developments that contribute to the uplift of the local area. To date we have delivered Brook House, in partnership with Newlon Housing Trust, which has 23 floors of shared ownership housing along with a new primary school. We have also completed Phase 1 of the NDP, Lilywhite House, which comprises a major new Sainsbury’s, a University Technical College and our new Club offices.

Visitors to the stadium will have seen the extensive site clearance work underway in preparation for the new stadium.

In respect of the last remaining property needed to complete the stadium site assembly, the lengthy challenge by Archway Sheet Metal Works Limited to the Secretary of State’s decision to grant a Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) was comprehensively rejected on all grounds after a High Court hearing in February 2015.

Haringey Council has now started the legal CPO process that will culminate with the land price being determined by the Lands Chamber of the Upper Tribunal. On 6 March 2015 the Council published and served a Notice of Intention to execute a General Vesting Declaration in respect of the CPO land (which includes the Archway land). Service of this notice allows Haringey Council to execute a General Vesting Declaration from 7 May 2015. This will allow the Council to take possession of all remaining parcels of land under the CPO from 5 June 2015.

We shall continue to provide updates as matters progress.

Quick update

"In respect of driving higher revenues in order to enable greater investment in players, it is clearly evident that we need a ‘game changer’ to lift this Club to the next level - namely an increased capacity stadium.

Currently we are competing for Champions League qualification whilst driving revenue in the smallest stadium of the top six clubs in the Premier League. The new stadium is, therefore, critical.

Our challenge is to deliver the stadium scheme in a viable manner.

The Public Inquiry and subsequent Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) process has cost us considerable money and time delay. I know you are impatient for its delivery - as are we all – and our objective remains to deliver the new scheme for the start of the 2018-19 season. The scheme, will not, however, be without its challenges along the way.

As announced previously, a more effective, timely build programme can take place when the Club moves away from the Lane for a period of one season.

We are currently undertaking due diligence and holding discussions on alternative stadium options. Consideration needs to be given to several factors, including planning, policing, transport and the impact it may have on the Team itself. Clearly all possible options have pros and cons and we are aware that we shall not be able to find one which will please all. It is, however, a short-term, interim arrangement so that we can ultimately deliver a fantastic new stadium in Tottenham for the long-term future success of the Club. We shall also, at the appropriate time, be sending supporters a survey about their matchday activities, in order to better inform decisions for the season away.

At the top of this page you can see an aerial shot taken earlier this week. It shows clearly the beginning of the boundary of the new North Stand as well as the buildings that were subject to the CPO.

An exciting time - although we are constantly reminded just what a huge and complex scheme it is with legal, planning, financial, property, transport, relocation and regeneration issues.

We know that our North London neighbours experienced delays and setbacks during the delivery of their stadium and their challenges were far less than ours with no site constraints and with significant enabling development.

We have already delivered developments that contribute to the uplift of the local area. These include Brook House, a residential scheme in partnership with Newlon Housing Trust, which has 23 floors of shared ownership housing along with a new primary school. We have also completed Phase 1 of the Northumberland Development Project, Lilywhite House, the T-shaped building which can be seen to the north of the stadium site. It comprises a major new Sainsbury’s, the Tottenham University Technical College, officially opened by Lord Sugar in March and our new Club offices that we moved into in February.

We are currently in the process of activating time-lapse cameras to keep you up-to-date as this progresses. We shall be making planning applications for updated elements and running this in parallel with the works continuing on the ground.

It will be our home for many, many years to come so we are determined to deliver it as the best stadium in Europe. I would therefore ask for your continued support as we work to do this. A further announcement will be made during the summer."

REVEALED: Further changes to Spurs stadium plans WILL be made as permission for amendments granted

As Tottenham Hotspur were granted permission for amendments to their stadium plans tonight, it was revealed there will be more on the way.


At a special meeting of Haringey council’s planning sub-committee, a new basement level providing underground car parking as well as plant and furniture storage areas were all unanimously approved.

Also passed by the committee were changes to the ground floor layout of the stadium including extended player changing rooms, enhanced media facilities and “other associated stadium uses”.

It was confirmed that Spurs will make further applications for changes to their plans which were originally drawn up in 2007.

Haringey council head of development management Emma Williamson said that it was “normal” for projects of this size to submit a series of amendments as they progress.

The club are likely to move for the next set of changes on July 23 at the next meeting of the planning committee.

Northumberland Park councillor John Bevan asked if there were any details on what might be proposed by the club in further applications at which point Haringey council’s lawyer David Merson insisted the committee concentrate on the plans in front of it.

Councillor Bevan also raised the issue of radio reception possibly being blocked out by the new stadium, a consideration not included in original applications, and assurances were made that the issue would be considered as the project moves forward.

And Official Confirmation of this...

Northumberland Development Project Update - Basement Application


Posted on 23 June 2015 - 08:00
The Club is pleased to announce that following a meeting of the London Borough of the Haringey Planning Sub-Committee on June 22, our application to incorporate a basement on the new stadium site has been approved.

This permission will allow us to move the already consented car parking into the basement level, alongside plant and storage, in order to allow us to free up space at the ground floor level to be allocated to other operational requirements including enhanced media facilities and extended player changing areas.

With works now progressing on the stadium site, the Club is continuing to refine the detailed design of the stadium, which was originally produced in 2008, to ensure it is optimised and that it meets the latest technical requirements and improvements in stadia design.

Chairman, Daniel Levy, said: “We are delighted that this application has been approved and are grateful for the continued support of the Council for this landmark project.

“We shall, in the coming weeks, be providing further information on these updated elements with the intention of carrying out a period of consultation during the summer and submitting planning applications later in the year. As we have stated previously, these updates will be running in parallel with the works continuing on the ground.”
