Tottenham get planning permission for new £400m stadium - pictures of how their new ground may appear

Tottenham have been given the green light to build the biggest club stadium in London, after Haringey Council approved plans for the new 61,000 capacity ground.

Spurs were waiting on the council's verdict for three applications before pushing ahead with the £400m development which they hope to have ready for the 2018-19 season.

Spurs only need final approval from the London Mayor's office before building can begin and Boris Johnson has previously signalled his enthusiasm for the project.

The stadium will have a bigger capacity than Arsenal's 60,432 Emirates Stadium and is being built to cater for NFL teams and a potential home for a London American football franchise.
