Tottenham Hotspur have formally submitted the planning application for the new White Hart Lane stadium, which has been amended to include a single tier stand.

The new stadium will have a capacity of 56,250 and promises to seat the spectators closer to the pitch that at any other comparable stadium in the UK.

Daniel Levy, Chairman of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club, said: “The submission of the application is a hugely important step for the Club.

“This is a multi-million pound investment in the area which brings with it housing, retail, a hotel, a supermarket, expanded community services and jobs and an exceptional public square. We have designed what will be a vibrant area 365 days a year and not a stadium with dead space surrounding it.

“Our desire from the outset has been to create a scheme of major benefit for local people and to deliver the most fan-friendly stadium in Europe.

“The inclusion of a new single tier stand combined with a fantastic stadium design demonstrates our absolute commitment to create the most atmospheric stadium for our supporters.

“Every fan will have an exceptional view of the action and will find themselves closer to the pitch than at any other comparable stadium.

“We have also embraced environmental sustainability as part of the plans, delivering a 40% reduction in carbon emissions against current building regulations which will make it one of the best performing of its kind in the UK.

“Tottenham Hotspur is proud of its roots in Haringey and the Northumberland Development Project will act as a powerful catalyst for the uplift of the wider area. We have had an exceptionally positive response to our consultation activities and I am personally delighted to have reached this stage.”

Ledley King, Club Captain, said: “Spurs has been my life – the current matchday atmosphere is unrivalled, it’s electric, players can almost reach out and touch it. The fans have such a key role to play and I’m delighted the new stadium has been designed to maintain that atmosphere. It’s what makes Tottenham Hotspur what it is.”
