Tottenham have suffered yet another frustrating setback in their redevelopment project, this time regarding their plans to regenerate the area around the new stadium.
The stadium itself has been heavily delayed, way past its original opening date of September 15 against Liverpool.
Now they have received no decision from Haringey Council over Tottenham’s proposal to build 330 new homes just outside White Hart Lane railway station.
This could provide a major source of income for the club, who have now sought to appeal to the planning inspectorate over Haringey’s apparent ‘non-determination’.
The Council refused to comment on the grounds that they were unable while an application was still in progress.
They will instead take a formal view of the development and submit a report to the planning inspectorate, who will then take the matter forward in the following months.
Spurs were entitled to appeal after Haringey failed to make a decision after 16 weeks.
Tottenham feel that it is key to keep the ‘positive effect’ of the new stadium moving.
A club spokesperson said: “Our plans for the Goods Yard site, which is owned by the club, would deliver up to 330 new homes, including 40 per cent affordable housing, with new employment, retail and leisure spaces at the ground floor and are in line with the adopted Area Action Plan for the area.”
