Mayor gives green-light to White Hart Lane redevelopment
Fans will be hoping this now means the club will now commit to staying in Haringey
PLANS to keep Spurs in Haringey received a boost this afternoon after Mayor Boris Johnson approved the plans to redevelop White Hart Lane.
Haringey Council approved plans for a �400million scheme to redevelop White Hart Lane into a 56,000-seater stadium, but the Mayor had the power to overturn that decision and send planners back to the drawing board.
In the meantime, it was revealed Spurs have also reached the final two to take over the Olympic Stadium in Stratford following the 2012 Olympics, with West Ham.
This sent loyal fans into a spin, as well as council officials, who had hoped the new development would bring a new lease of life to Tottenham, along with hundreds of jobs.

However, this afternoon, the Mayor approved the plans, reigniting fans’ hopes that the club will remain in the borough - unless the government decides to intervene.
Haringey Council has made numerous efforts to ensure the club stay in the borough, most recently offering developers permission to begin Compulsory Purchase Orders around the ground - but only if they promised to stay in Tottenham.
