Spurs pledge to build a new stadium

Tottenham has pledged to build a new stadium in North London after a £27m deal was secured for publicity funded infrastructure improvements in the area.

 The new commitment comes after Haringey Council’s assurance that they will invest £9m towards new and improved public space, heritage work and environmental improvements in North Tottenham.

 Another £18m towards the regeneration of the area has been promised by London Mayor Boris Johnson, this includes £8.5m towards a new stadium approach.

 A joint statement by the club and Haringey Council said Spurs are now “seeking to deliver an iconic, new Premier League stadium development and a host of local improvements.”

Tottenham Hotspur Chairman, Daniel Levy, said: “As a major employer and business in the area we are delighted with this commitment from the Mayor and Haringey Council.

“We have long said we could only invest in the area if we could see our commitment supported by others and that there was a real need to maximise the regeneration benefits and lift the wider area.

 “We therefore see this as a commitment from the public sector to the Tottenham area and one which strengthens our ability to deliver a new stadium scheme with the potential to kick-start the long-term regeneration of North Tottenham.”
