Tottenham's new stadium plans have moved a step closer after the club confirmed that the Northumberland Development Project planning application has been submitted to the London Borough of Haringey.

The ambitious project is to be delivered on the current site and adjacent land, thus ending any concerns about a move out of the Borough while providing major regeneration of the area.

A change to final plans sees one major improvement to the stadium design - the inclusion of a single-tier stand.

The stand is reminiscent of the steep Sudtribune at Borussia Dortmund's Westfalenstadion, which accounts for 25,000 of the stadium's 67,000 seats.

Spurs, who have played home games at White Hart Lane since 1899, hope to move into the new ground within five years.

The new stadium will house a 56,250 capacity, with the promise that spectators will find themselves closer to the pitch than at any other comparable stadium in the UK.

Spurs 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.

Fan friendly

"Our desire from the outset has been to create a scheme of major benefit for local people and to deliver the most fan-friendly stadium in Europe.

"The inclusion of a new single tier stand combined with a fantastic stadium design demonstrates our absolute commitment to create the most atmospheric stadium for our supporters.

"Every fan will have an exceptional view of the action and will find themselves closer to the pitch than at any other comparable stadium.

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

"Tottenham Hotspur is proud of its roots in Haringey and the Northumberland Development Project will act as a powerful catalyst for the uplift of the wider area. We have had an exceptionally positive response to our consultation activities and I am personally delighted to have reached this stage."

Levy's words have been echoed by club captain Ledley King, who believes the new stadium will retain the 'electric' atmosphere of White Hart Lane.

"Spurs has been my life - the current matchday atmosphere is unrivalled, it's electric, players can almost reach out and touch it. The fans have such a key role to play and I'm delighted the new stadium has been designed to maintain that atmosphere. It's what makes Tottenham Hotspur what it is."

in response to Chris Plaster (Arsenal Fan), just because you haave a good stadium it doesn't make Chelsea an average team because their stadium is smaller than yours. even with 60,000 its still like a library. and how many trophies you won since moving there? new spurs stadium does however look very good.

Stadium looks amazing. It will be one of the best in the country and could even be apart of the world cup bid. The flats look abit ugly tho, and the only bad thing about the staidum is the lack of expand ability. But theres diffiantly gonna be a better atmosphere at the new ground than the emirates.

I have to say, the plans for the Spuds new stadium do look good. It'll be good to have the first & second best stadiums in london (with the Emirates obviously no.1). Should make Chelsea realise that they're just an average london team alongside the likes of West Ham, Fulham etc. The spuds though are still some way short of their much superior neighbours up the road, who still have a better stadium and a much superior squad....this season and any other season.

The new ground looks great and I'm glad to see the majority or Arsenal fans are being pretty positive about the new ground!

The stadium is amazing, our season tickets will rise to 30 odd thousand from the current 22,000, which is great for the club. Its great to see our club listening to the fans views and giving something back to the fans. The atmosphere is going to be electric with the fans in mind. The champions league is not the be all and end all. Our club is ran with excellence and we will always play the Spurs way, we may not always get the correct results, but i would not change us for the world.

the single tier looks awsome cant wait, we need to keep the famous cockerel perched on top of one of the stands. and if we are to change the name of the ground one of the stands should be named in memory of the the magnificent white hart lane. Naming rights seems to be the way with new stadiums these days lets just hope we dont end up with something rubbish like emirates! i quite fancy saying are you going down 'The Mansion' this weekend. Shame its not going to be built quicker as think we will need it for the champions league x 5-1 .

Lewis Robins (Manchester City fan) says...

This Spurs ground looks great! It may be smaller, but this will almost definately get one over the Emirates. With all our money, instead of buying worthless, disloyal players like Robinho, Manchester City should build a bigger, better stadium like this one, hopefully bigger than Old Trafford! We should call it "The City of Manchester Stadium II."

This will be a major step in the regeneration of a club that, lets be fair, has been a sleeping giant over the past 20 years, In my opinion, Daniel Levy is the best chairman in the League in terms of business, he has been able to finance not only the building of a new stadium, but a training ground as well. I love the way that the new stadium has a single tier stand like the kop at Anfield. Also the public square lokks great with a hotel, a new club shop, a club museum and even a supermarket, White Hart Lane has been a great stadium but the club needed this move for the regeneration as the stadium is getting old.
