Absolutely. 60,000 seats? That's a lotta four by twos eh Bozza? Just kidding. Pretty big but if Spurs ever got back into gear they'd test it.

And good on them for increasing public transport se when visiting WHL.

With 70,000 Club members and 22,000 people on the waiting list for a season ticket
I presume that is the motive. At first I was thinking this is crazy, your oldest stand is only 20 years old and look how constrained your site is. Then you see plans and it really is a grand plan, the local council would have to work with them to ensure they can buy all the properties they need.

If the plan could be executed by 2018 it could be London's second stadium for the world cup. It would be a close contest between it and Arsenal's Emirates stadium.

One difference would be this one will probably get built :lol: But its a much needed upgrade in capacity, because as bj said they have alot of people that simple just can't get into their games.

Difference is this is being funded by a private organisation.

Not a Government organisation.

Agreed there public transport to the ground is impressive.

Oh and good to see James posting again 8)

The local council has refused Tottenham Hotspur permission to build a new ground on Northumberland Park . A council official says, ‘A fun fair once a year is one thing but a permanent circus is out of the question’.

Back to the drawing board, wait until the next elections or find another site I guess.

A good stadium with the right capacity. They can fill it for all games.

THe whole project is great. I like stadiums in built-up areas with facilities that serve a purpose every day and where match days are then special occasions carefully planned to manage the crowds.

Its a balance between the traditional too-confined stadiums many of which have been abandoned in England and the sad ugly out-by-the motor way stadiums like Bolton or Reading

Egan, have you ever tried to get to WHL by public transport? Worst in London - so it'll need huge improvements.

Tottenham Hotspur have submitted a planning application for their new 56,000-seat stadium and hope to be playing at the venue by 2012.

I also saw a blog a few weeks back about the plans involving the demoliton of a building that formerly housed the club offices, even though it's not a necessary part of the redevelopment.
