A Premier League side has had its proposal for an underground basement beneath its stadium approved…
Tottenham Hotspur announced that following a meeting of the London Borough of Haringey Planning Sub-Committee, its application to incorporate a basement on the new stadium site had been approved.
The permission would allow the club to move the already approved car parking into the basement level, alongside plant and storage to allow more space on the ground floor for media facilities and player changing rooms.
Daniel Levy, Chairman of Tottenham Hotspur, said the club was delighted the application had been approved and were grateful for the continued council support for the ‘landmark’ project.
“We shall, in the coming weeks, be providing further information on these updated elements with the intention of carrying out a period of consultation during the summer and submitting planning applications later in the year,” said Daniel.
“These updates will be running in parallel with the works continuing on the ground.”
Work is currently progressing on the stadium site and Tottenham is continuing to refine the detailed design of the stadium which was originally produced in 2008.
The club explained this was to ensure it was optimised and that it met the latest technical requirements and improvements in stadia design.
