Barclays Premier League club Tottenham Hotspurs has been growing in leaps and bounds and with plans in place to have a new stadium erected, the targets have received a massive boost after Haringey Council approved the plans setting pace for aggravated construction plans.

The new stadium, a 61000 seater, is close to the White Hart Lane, and Spurs have been granted permission by Haringey Council for the £400 million Northumberland Park project in mid-December.

ESPN reveals that London Mayor Boris Johnson has approved the plans with the club confirming on Friday that the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government Greg Clark had added his approval, leading Haringey Council to rubber stamp the project.

“The Club can confirm that the Secretary of State has written to the London Borough of Haringey stating that he does not propose to call in the planning application for the Northumberland Development Project and Haringey Council has today (15 April 2016) granted permission for the scheme, read the club statement.

Next season will be Spurs’ last at White Hart Lane and they will spend the 2017-18 season playing their home matches most likely at Wembley or Milton Keynes Dons’ Stadium while the old ground is demolished and the new stadium is completed.
