Train4TradeSkills News: What effect would new Spurs’ stadium on the construction industry?

Spurs secure planning rights for new stadium despite Olympic row.

Tottenham Hotspur FC have been granted planning permission this week to build a new £400 million stadium in North London.

Despite being embroiled in a fierce battle with West Ham over the Olympic Stadium in Stratford, Tottenham have secured planning consent to build a new stadium next to the club’s existing ground at White Hart Lane.

Spurs have not yet committed to the move or the new stadium and will likely wait to see what happens with the Olympic Stadium before making a decision.

The Olympic Stadium was given to West Ham to occupy after the 2012 Olympics, and Spurs have disputed that, launching a legal battle over the move.

That’s why they have launched a back-up plan with this new stadium, which would have a greater capacity than the 36,000-seater White Hart Lane.

Tottenham have released a statement saying:

“The club can confirm that the S106 agreement in respect of the Northumberland Development Project has now been completed and planning permissions have been issued.

“This enables discussions with the London borough of Haringey, the Mayor of London and central government to continue as we seek to make the development viable and deliverable.”

What effect would a new stadium for Tottenham have on the construction industry? Obviously a good one, as the new stadium and surrounding facilities would create jobs for contractors in London.

The other positive news is that the original plans included 434 new homes, a 150-room hotel, supermarket and other facilities, which would create jobs for plumbers, electricians and other contractors in the area.
