Northumberland Development Project (NDP) Update
The progress of the Club’s new stadium scheme has been evident both to visitors to the Lane and those who have logged on to watch the webcam (www.tottenhamhotspur.com/newscheme/stadiumtv), as the Club builds out the basement.
We received planning permission from Haringey Council on 16 December 2015 for the revised updated stadium scheme. We are awaiting a number of further planning confirmations within the next month, including the White Hart Lane station delivery timetable and public realm improvements.
The Club has shown a huge commitment to the area having already delivered over 250 affordable homes on nearby developments and is conscious that the stadium scheme plays a key role as a catalyst for wider regeneration.
We shall continue to provide updates as matters progress.
Player Accommodation Lodge at the Training Centre
Construction has commenced on this facility which will provide high quality accommodation for the First Team and Academy, allowing the Club to provide a controlled, consistent and familiar environment for our players to optimise rest, rehabilitation, recovery and diet alongside our world-class Training Centre.
Chairman, Daniel Levy, said: "This financial period saw a consolidation of the squad and substantial progress on capital projects.
“Mauricio and his coaching staff have created a great team spirit in a stable squad that encompasses both experience and youth. The results speak for themselves.
“We are continuing with an ambitious growth strategy. Our player development, on pitch performances, enhancements to our highly rated Training Centre and commencement of the new stadium scheme which will also host NFL, signify an exciting future for the Club.”
