Spurs £400m ‘silver ring’ stadium approved

Tottenham Hotspur’s £400m plan to redevelop White Hart Lane has got the thumbs up from Haringey Council’s planning committee.

After a four-hour long meeting last night, the planning committee voted unanimously for the club’s plan to build a landmark 56,250-seat stadium, alongside a 150-bedroom hotel, 200 homes and a big supermarket.

The Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment, which initially declared it was “disappointed” with the Northumberland Park development, is now fully backing the project after the revised planning application took on board its criticisms about surround buildings.

Spurs now face a nail-biting two-week wait while London Mayor Boris Johnson takes the final decision on whether the scheme can go-ahead.

Supermarket giant Sainsbury’s will build an 110,000 sq ft megastore on the 20-acre Northumberland Park site in Phase 1 of the programme.

If approved, work could now begin on this as early as this year, while Spurs secures £250m funding to build the new ground.

The club hopes to be playing at the new ‘silver ring’ stadium by the 2013-14 season.

At the same time Spurs submitted a surprise bid yesterday to move into the Olympic Stadium.

The north Londoners have teamed up with AEG, the American operator of London’s O2 Arena, for a joint application to lease the arena after 2012.

The move came while all eyes were on West Ham’s well documented proposal, submitted yesterday.

Daniel Levy, Spurs chairman, said: “It is only prudent and good management that we ensure that we investigate all possible options for the club.

“We were informed by the Olympic Park Legacy Company that were we not to register an interest at this time, there would not be an opportunity at any future date.”

    Stadium Phasing and Delivery

    Spectators will be closer to the pitch than at any other new UK stadium.  A new “home end” single tier is designed to generate the atmosphere and  a wall of sound.

    The new stadium location and designs ensure that Spurs can continue to play at White Hart Lane even during construction. This phasing plan explains how the change from the old to the new stadium is made over the course of one season and that at no stage is capacity less than that of the current ground.

    PHASE 1

    New stadium build commences to the North of the existing stadium. The existing stadium remains in use at full capacity.

    Phase 1

    PHASE 2

    Out of season, the North Stand of the existing stadium is demolished and the new pitch is laid.

    Phase 2

    PHASE 3

    The partially completed new stadium is in use for one season with a capacity in excess of the current ground. The remainder of the existing stadium is demolished.

    Phase 3

    PHASE 4

    Out of season the remainder of the new stadium is completed, ready for the start of the following season. The public square and remaining public space is created and the rest of the development begins construction.

    Phase 4
