Tottenham receive council green light for new stadium

Spurs are on course to be in their new home at Northumberland Park by 2018 after Haringey Council's approval of the club's revised stadium plans

'Tottenham confirmed the club's £400million renovation of White Hart Lane has been approved by Haringey Council.

The Premier League side confirmed the news via Twitter on Thursday:

Tottenham hope to be able to move into the new 61,000-seat stadium in time for the 2018-19 campaign.

The club submitted a revised plan to the Haringey Council which included the provision for NFL games to be hosted at the stadium, with NFL-specific facilities, such as a retractable roof and larger changing rooms as well as extra facilities for injury recovery.

The Northumberland Park stadium is set to be biggest in London, and feature a single-tier stand, similar to Borussia Dortmund's infamous 'Yellow Wall'.

Tottenham will also need to find a new home ground for the 2017-18 season with Milton Keynes Dons' stadium:mk and Wembley being considered.

The plans still require the approval of London mayor Boris Johnson, who has been on record supporting Tottenham's plans to redevelop the area.
