Tottenham Reach Stadium Agreement

By on September 22, 2011

Tottenham have taken a small step forward with regards to the Northumberland Development Project after they signed a planning agreement with Haringey Council.

The section 106 agreement means the club have agreed to pay money towards local facilities in the area if they opt to remain in North London.

Spurs have continuously challenged the decision to give West Ham United the Olympic Stadium following the culmination of the 2012 Olympics next summer.

The club were already given planning permission to re-develop White Hart Lane in a site adjacent to the current home of Spurs but were hoping for local and central government funding to help facilitate the area, one of the most run-down in London.

They are now hoping to convince London mayor Boris Johnson and other central government figures to come to an agreement in regards to re-vamping and improving the area.

“The club can confirm that the S106 agreement in respect of the Northumberland Development Project has now been completed and planning permissions have been issued,” a club statement read.

“This enables discussions with the London borough of Haringey, the Mayor of London and central government to continue as we seek to make the development viable and deliverable.

“As always, we shall keep all our supporters updated as these progress.”
