Tottenham Hotspur Football Club (THFC) has moved closer to transforming its White Hart Lane ground, as Haringey Council approved a land deal for the clubs new stadium.

The 56,250-capacity stadium is being built as part of the wider regeneration of Tottenham, North London, following a pledge by THFC and Haringey Council.

Under the deal the Council will acquire land for the development to remove the risk of owners of neighbouring properties seeking an injunction to prevent construction of the development.

The Council will then grant a 999-year lease of the land to THFC.

The Northumberland Development Project's (NPD) proposal for the stadium covers a 20-acre area, which includes the site of the current ground and the industrial land to the north to create a larger area in which the new stadium can be built.

It also includes plans for a hotel, 200 new homes, shops and leisure facilities

The design will feature using flowing lines of external cladding, an undulating roof and the club colours to create a visually striking building.

The Council said in its report to the Cabinet that the scheme would provide a focal point for the regeneration of Tottenham and act as a "catalyst for the long-term physical regeneration of Tottenham."

The Council granted planning permission to the scheme in 2010 and approved a revised scheme last year. It also pledged to invest £9m towards improvements of the area.

London mayor Boris Johnson has also pledged £18m of public money towards the scheme.
