Tottenham given green light for redevelopment plans

Tottenham Hotspur Football Club have cleared what could be the final hurdle in their bid to redevelop White Hart Lane after the London Mayor gave their plans the green light according to the Press Association.
Boris Johnson had the power to overturn last month's decision by Haringey Council to grant Spurs planning permission to build a 56,000-seater venue on the site of their current ground.
But the mayor decided to back the council, meaning the £450 million project can go ahead unless the Government decides to intervene.
Spurs had considered a move to the Olympic Stadium in Stratford should their plans to redevelop White Hart Lane be turned down. They faced stiff competition from London rivals West Ham who hope to acquire the venue after the games in 2012.
The news is sure to please both clubs and now that the plans have been given approval Tottenham can press ahead with the redevelopment of their famous old ground.
