Tottenham Hotspur Football Club (Spurs) has received final approval for its plans to build a 58,000-capacity stadium in north London.

Communities minister Eric Pickles has now approved a compulsory purchase order – made by London Borough of Haringey – which will enable the £400m Northumberland Development Project (NDP) to continue to proceed.

In a statement, a club official said: “We’re pleased to announce that the Department for Communities and Local Government has confirmed the Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) made by Haringey Council in respect of the remaining land required for the stadium. This is a very significant step in the CPO process.

“We’ve used the intervening period productively and have refined detailed design of the stadium in order to ensure it is future-proofed and optimised. We shall provide our supporters with a further update and timeline on the NDP as soon as we are able to do so.”

NDP is being developed in partnership with Spurs and local authorities and includes the stadium as well as 200 homes, a hotel, a retail area and a public square for community events such as ice skating or street markets.

Spurs is hoping to have its new stadium ready for the start of the 2017-18 season.
