See thisislondon.co.uk/lite Its Light Hart Lane IT will be all light on the night when Tottenhams new stadium is up and running. Spurs have submitted a planning application for their new 56,250-capac- ity stadium on land adjacent to White Hart Lane where they will continue to play during the construction. The project includes plans for a publicsquare,hotelandsupermarket, as well as a 63-row, single-tier Kop- style stand in an attempt to maximise the atmosphere inside the ground. The club are refusing to reveal the cost of the project, with reports sug- gesting a figure similar to the 400m Arsenal spent on the Emirates. Spurs intend to move into the par- tially-built new stadium for the start of the 2012-13 season, with the ground being complete in time for the follow- ing campaign. Harry Redknapp believes the move isvitalinbringingChampionsLeague football to the Lane. A new stadium is all-important. It is a must for the club, he said.
