Tottenham to Submit New Stadium Plans to London Mayor in a Month

Tottenham Hotspur F.C. are hoping that they would be given the opportunity to submit the plans for their new stadium for approval by the mayor of London – Boris Johnson – in a month. Still, the London mayor has already hinted that he fully supports the stadium project by calling the football club plans “amazing” in January.

As a matter of fact, the Premier League club were given a permission for the project estimated to £400 million by Haringey Council in the middle of December 2015. So, after the permission was received, work on the 61,000-seater stadium has already begun. It would be situated beside Tottenham’s current home at White Hart Lane and would be also home to a London NFL franchise.

Last week, at the board-to-board meeting with the football club Supporters’ Trust, which was especially attended by the chairman of The Spurs Daniel Levy, Tottenham Hotspur were asked if there had been a reason for the delay in handing the plans to mayor Johnson.

According to the protocols of the board-to-board meeting, the club were asked by the Supporters’ Trust for an update on the new stadium plan’s second stage conclusion. The board of the football club reassured that re-checking every detail caused the delay and the plans are expected to be presented to the mayor within the next month.

The completion date of the project remains the same and is still maintained for August 2018. Still, more details were promised to be presented on the next board-to-board meeting that is scheduled for May 2016.

Considering the fact that the upcoming 2016/2017 campaign is likely to be the last one for Tottenham at their current home stadium, the club’s Supporters’ Board wanted to learn what plans are made by the squad to mark their departure of White Hart Lane. In addition, the board confirmed that a special committee had been established in order to organise special events and memorabilia for the club’s last year at the iconic stadium.

According to Tottenham Hotspur chairman Levy, the football club were effectively running a couple of different businesses up to date, including the football club and the new stadium project. Mr. Levy also shared that more than 70% of Tottenham’s staff are now engaged in the project that he described as an extremely complex one.

If everything goes according to plan, The Spurs would need a temporary stadium over the 2017/2018 campaign. This is why the club have been negotiating with the local Football Association about playing at Wembley Stadium until their new home is finished.
