Historic buildings saved as Spurs submit new plans

Three buildings which the Society campaigned to save will no longer be demolished under revised plans put forward by Spurs football club.

The Victorian Society has welcomed Spurs' revised plans for its major new stadium development in Tottenham.

The club plans to build a new 56,000 capacity stadium at the heart of a 20-acre development to the east of Tottenham High Road. New houses, offices, a hotel, a supermarket and a new museum are all planned for the site.

But the first application, submitted back in December, put a number of historic buildings at risk of demolition. These included the Red House (the historic former club headquarters), the White Hart pub and an attractive Edwardian dispensary. The buildings were to be replaced by a public open space between Tottenham High Road and the new stadium. But the proposal was criticised by the Victorian Society, SAVE Britain's Heritage, CABE and English Heritage.

Now the club has submitted a revised scheme which sees these three buildings restored rather than demolished and incorporated into a new public plaza to the south of the new stadium.
