Huge Update – Tottenham Secure Green Signal To Build Controversial Training Ground Plan Approved

published :

Tottenham have managed to get a controversial training ground plan approved by the Enfield Council. Spurs have been keen on building new education facilities on the modern training ground that they have occupied since 2012. This 77-acre piece of land has been a subject of lots of issues with the ecologists, who have been against the proposal to build new buildings in this region, which has a load of grass snakes and great-crested newts living.

The club proposed an educational facility along with classrooms in order to develop it as a world-class teaching facility for coaches and spectators alike. This would be built apart from a sports pitch and parking area for the coaches.

Spurs have made sufficient alterations to the project so that it now includes wildflower walks, ponds, meadows, and boardwalks along with stands and pitches. Chairman Daniel Levy says that he is delighted with the council’s decision to approve the project. He was quoted as saying by the Enfield Today:

“The location of the Club’s Training Centre has provided us with an unrivalled and unique opportunity to deliver something truly outstanding for the young people of Enfield. Through our section 106 commitments in Enfield we have already been able to engage and enhance the lives of thousands of young people from across the borough.”

We clearly have benefited a lot from this new training ground and its world-class facilities. It is not a coincidence that Tottenham have been registering immense progress on the field in the last 5 years.

After a third place finish in the 2015-16 season, we have managed to go one better and finish as runners-up in the Premier League campaign this season. Being able to finish ahead of clubs that have a high budget, like Manchester City, Manchester United, and Arsenal is some feat indeed. The club clearly see the extension of the training ground as a key part of the increasing the progress going forward.

One of the main activists against the scheme has been Jill Simpson, who claimed that the region has never allowed new buildings considering the ecological importance. On a positive note, this move is expected to benefit the children of the Enfield region with world-class teaching facilities that would help them get better at the game. Spurs already have one of the best youth setups in the division.
