English Premier League club, Tottenham Hotspur’s has been granted permission to build a new 61,000-seater stadium.
The Haringey Council at a meeting on Thursday, gave the club the green light for their revised proposal for a new stadium, in which they hope to be playing in from the start of the 2018-2019 season.
In a statement on Twitter, the north London club said: “Stadium Update: We can announce that Haringey Council’s Planning Sub Committee has approved the Club’s new stadium proposals.”
The £400 million stadium will be built adjacent to the club’s present White Hart Lane ground where they have been since 1899.
“This marks yet another milestone in what has been a long and often difficult path,” chairman Daniel Levy said.
“We are grateful to all those who expressed their support for the scheme. It is crucial that we now clear the final steps in the legal process. The application is due to be considered by the Mayor early next week.
“This new scheme carries enormous public benefits and will play a key role in kick-starting place change, bringing exceptional opportunities for the local community and wider stakeholders.
“We are very proud to be part of this important step forward for an area that has been our home for more than 130 years and where we shall continue to live and play our part,” Levy added.
The proposed stadium which will have a hotel, sports centre, health centre, homes and a Tottenham Experience, housing a museum and club superstore will become the largest home ground in London.
