Tottenham Hotspur submits planning application for stadium featuring Martha Schwartz-designed landscape

Football club Tottenham Hotspur has submitted a planning application for its new club to Haringey Council.

Tottenham Hotspur Football Club has confirmed that the Northumberland Development Project planning application has been submitted to the London Borough of Haringey.

The move marks a major milestone in the delivery of the Club's regeneration proposals that include a new public square designed by landscape architect Martha Schwartz.

Martha Schwartz Partners has designed a square containing two distinct but connected spaces — an active space for events and performances and a smaller, quieter space.

Each space is defined by stepped landforms for seating, new planting and a ribbon of Astroturf that connects the landforms and provides softer places to sit.

Tottenham Hotspur Football Club chairman Daniel Levy said: "The submission of the application is a hugely important step for the Club.

"This is a multi-million pound investment in the area which brings with it housing, retail, a hotel, a supermarket, expanded community services and jobs and an exceptional public square. We have designed what will be a vibrant area 365 days a year and not a stadium with dead space surrounding it.

"We have also embraced environmental sustainability as part of the plans, delivering a 40 per cent reduction in carbon emissions against current building regulations which will make it one of the best performing of its kind in the UK."

The existing 36,000 capacity stadium has remained unchanged for more than a decade.

Haringey Council will now undertake its statutory consultation process before determining the application.
