The Club's plans to retain historic buildings and incorporate them in to a thriving new courtyard as part of the development plans has received strong backing from local and national heritage groups.

The Club's plans to retain historic buildings and incorporate them in to a thriving new courtyard as part of the development plans has received strong backing from local and national heritage groups.

The decision to retain the buildings as part of an improved design and landscaping approach are the culmination of consultation and discussion with a number of organisations and groups. The changes directly reflect the Club's desire to find the best solution for the Club and the local community.

Matthew Bradby, Chair of the Tottenham Civic Society said:

"We are delighted that the four historic buildings at the south of the site will now be saved and incorporated into a dramatic new landscape. This is sustainable regeneration that balances heritage on the one hand and high quality new development on the other.

"The contrast between old and new will make this one of the most dramatic streetscapes in North London. These new proposals really do have the 'wow' factor that local people have been hoping for."

Marcus Binney, President of SAVE Britain's Heritage said:

"We are very pleased to have been able to cooperate so constructively with Spurs and believe the result is a much improved scheme."

William Palin, Secretary of SAVE Britain's Heritage added:

"Tottenham's response to our concerns has been extremely positive and we are hugely encouraged by the revised plans."

Jim Tuite, Save the Red House Campaign said:

"Tottenham Hotspur should be congratulated for their ingenuity in coming forward with plans that have enabled them to combine the retention of their important Victorian past with twenty-first century world class design.

"This unique solution is a tremendous addition to the overall plan and will be a major asset for the High Road and the whole of the Tottenham area."

As the new planning application process moves ahead, it is important to be able to provide a strong demonstration of support for the scheme.

The former application has been withdrawn, therefore, if you signed the petition for the former application it will not apply.
