Tottenham Hotspur FC and Haringey Council issued a joint statement today (February 1st), in which they pledged their commitment to a regeneration project in the north London.
The club has committed to the Northumberland Development Project (NDP), which will see the development of a new football stadium, homes, shops and leisure facilities in Tottenham.
Subject to approval, the council will invest £9 million towards new and improved public spaces and the Mayor of London Boris Johnson has also committed £18 million to the north Tottenham regeneration programme.
Of this fund, £6 million will be invested in highways and parking improvements and a heating and power scheme.
Tottenham Hotspur Chairman, Daniel Levy, said: "We therefore see this as a commitment … which strengthens our ability to deliver a new stadium scheme with the potential to kick-start the long-term regeneration of north Tottenham."
The area was at the heart of the London riots last year and the Mayor said yesterday (January 31st) that "Tottenham should never feel forgotten again".
