The capacity of Tottenham Hotspur’s new £800m stadium is to grow after an application to increase its size was accepted by Haringey Council. The club’s initial planning application was for a 61,461-seater stadium but design changes to the roof and seating layout has meant that an extra 98 seats can be installed in the ground. After submitting an amended planning document to Haringey Council the changes have now been given the go-ahead by its planning officers.A club statement said: “Improved seating layout design has meant that we have been able to increase seating in several areas of the stadium. This will now see our official capacity rise to a total of 61,559.” According to Spurs, the biggest change will be in the stadium’s South stand, which under the new plans will be able to accommodate 17,500 spectators, an increase of 500 from original plans.
Spurs’ £800m new stadium takes shape
Major development work is well under way at Tottenham Hotspur’s new £800m stadium, see CN’s gallery documenting progress. When originally drawn up the new stadium was expected to hold 56,000 but this was revised up to 61,461. It will be the biggest in London and have more than 1,000 seats more than Arsenal’s 60,432 Emirates stadium. Mace was appointed as main contractor project in November 2015, beating Multiplex and Sir Robert McAlpine to the job. Since then the construction costs for the stadium have skyrocketed from a reported £400m in 2014 to £800m earlier this year, with the club attributing this partly to design changes and Brexit.Construction is expected to be completed next year, with Tottenham playing at Wembley next season as the existing White Hart Lane stadium is demolished.
