Tottenham Hotspur have been granted permission to build 72 homes and a new cinema on the site of a former printworks factory, according to the Enfield Independent. 

It serves as the club’s latest project to rejuvenate the area around the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, which was officially opened in April 2019. 

The stadium scheme also saw Spurs build more than 400 new homes near the ground and the latest proposal sees the club’s housing proposal in the area exceed the 900 mark. 

The Enfield Independent reports Spurs have requested to build more affordable housing on Tottenham High Road, with the plans approved by Haringey Council on Monday. 

The scheme is set to focus on an area opposite the club’s stadium called The Printworks, and will provide up to 23 affordable homes, with seven set aside for low-cost rent and 16 for intermediate rent. 

13 three-bedroom homes and a four-bedroom unit will also feature, while the rest of the plans will be filled by an assortment of one and two-bedroom flats. 

The development is also set to boast a new cinema with up to four screens, with its intention to be multipurpose for commercial and business uses. 

Spurs Web Opinion 

Spurs look like they are continuing to show Haringey Council that they are keen on improving the area around the stadium and this is another step in the right direction. Hopefully, as the stadium continues to be functional the way it is that can go a long way to achieving that too.
