Details of a multi-million pound regeneration scheme which promises around 200 new homes in a riot-hit area are expected to be revealed next week.
The detailed final application of Premier League football team Tottenham Hotspur’s Northumberland Development Project – which also plans to build a new stadium and rejuvenate the area - should be released next week.
The application – including type and tenancy of the homes - is scheduled to be discussed at a Haringey Council planning sub committee meeting on Monday 13 February. All files due for discussion are released online a week before the meeting.
So far, Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London, has pledged £18 million to the regeneration plans which will also provide new shops, leisure facilities and improve public spaces and infrastructure. Subject to cabinet approval, Haringey Council will commit £9 million to the regeneration.
Tottenham was the starting point for a series of riots in towns and cities across England in August last year.
Claire Kober, Haringey Council leader, said: ‘We are investing in the regeneration of Tottenham and supporting Spurs’ Northumberland Development Project because we know that together we can bring new employment opportunities to Tottenham, significantly improve the area and attract investment for a successful and sustainable future.’
Both the club and council have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding which sets out the intentions of each to support delivery of the regeneration.
