Drawn up by Make, KSS and Townsend Landscape Architects, after the original proposals Martha Schwarz came in for heavy criticism from CABE earlier this year, the plans will see White Hart Lane increase its capacity to 56,520 while redeveloping the surrounding area.

An enlarged public space, 150-room hotel, supermarket and 200 homes form part of the plans, which have been submitted to Haringey Council for approval.

The revised scheme retains the Grade II-listed Warmington House, along with the three other locally listed buildings of Red House, Dispensary and the former White Hart Pub – all of which were due to be flattened under the previous proposals.

Speaking about the changes, Daniel Levy, Chairman of THFC, said: “We have looked again at the overall masterplan and design of buildings in the south, as well as the impact on Tottenham High Road.  We have used this opportunity to make further design improvements to the scheme.”

Ken Shuttleworth, founder of Make, added: “The masterplan balances the old and the new, creating a world-class setting for the new stadium and wider development.  We have designed an exciting scheme that would be an amenity for the whole community, benefiting the wider Tottenham area.”
