Tottenham unveils stadium proposals

Tottenham Hotspur Football Club has announced plans for a 60,000-capacity stadium that it said will regenerate the area surrounding its north London home.

The new ground is planned at the existing 36,000-seat White Hart Lane site. The plans cover 8ha including the ground and an adjacent industrial estate. The club wants to add shops, homes, a club museum, a base for the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation and public space.

Club chairman Daniel Levy said: "We believe that this scheme has the potential to create a truly inspirational environment for both the club and the community as well as acting as the catalyst for the uplift of the wider area." He also announced plans to auction the stadium's naming rights to the highest bidder.

London Borough of Haringey leader George Meehan said: "We have been working extremely hard to revitalise the Tottenham area, which suffered so much from industrial decline. Real progress is being made and it is extremely pleasing that the club, as one of Haringey's prime assets, has demonstrated that it shares our commitment to this continuing regeneration by remaining in the borough."

The area lies in the Tottenham High Road regeneration corridor and is identified in the Haringey unitary development plan as a major site for potential redevelopment to act as a catalyst for prime regeneration. The club's consultation programme on the proposals will begin with a public exhibition to be launched on 14 November.
