Stadium Scheme – Local Impact
Delivering for the local community
Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium development scheme is widely acknowledged as the catalyst for the regeneration of North Tottenham, creating a new sports, leisure and entertainment destination for London.
It will become a hive of activity 365 days a year, with a new museum, an innovative Skywalk, 21st century retail experiences, first-class conference and banqueting and high-quality leisure facilities including restaurants and a hotel – and will attract in excess of two million visitors per year.
Furthermore, the Club has created 2,508 new jobs for local people as a direct result of its ongoing new stadium development scheme and sport-led regeneration of the area. Jobs have been delivered across a range of industries, including retail, education, construction, hospitality, IT and security, with all going to local people.
Once complete, the stadium development scheme will have created 3,500 new jobs and pump £293 million into the local economy each year – almost double the impact of our previous stadium.
• The London Academy of Excellence Tottenham – a new state-funded Sixth Form, financially supported by the Club and delivered in partnership with Highgate School, bringing expertise and first-class teaching from eight further top independent schools, giving the area’s brightest students the best possible access to leading Universities
• A new 78,000 square foot Sainsbury’s store at Northumberland Park – employing 280 colleagues from the local area
• The Cannon Road Development - 100% affordable, 222 new homes and the new Brook House Primary School on the site of an old rubber factory
• Berland Court – An affordable housing development nearby Northumberland Park rail station, incorporating the relocation of a Jehovah’s Witness Kingdom Hall and a new Club merchandise store
The Northumberland Development Project represents an investment of hundreds of millions of pounds into Tottenham.
Not only will we be ensuring there will be improved access to jobs for local people, our investment in the area will enable and encourage local businesses to grow.
The Club currently works with a number of local businesses and organisations including local cheesemongers, breweries, drinks makers and others. As we move towards the opening of our new stadium, we shall look to expand on these relationships and collaborations.
