Report: Plans concerning Tottenham up for approval today

White Hart Lane 6

Tottenham Hotspur are set to find out whether they will be able to build a players lodge facility.

The Enfield Independent has reported that a decision over whether a player lodge at Tottenham Hotspur’s training ground will go-ahead will be made this evening.

The London Evening Standard previously reported that the 45-room lodge would be used to house the club’s younger players as well as providing facilities for other teams and other players to use at the club’s permission.

The lodge would be useful because it would allow Tottenham to work closer with their young academy prospects, taking the edge off of parents and those connected to younger players, in terms of ensuring they make training sessions and various meetings.

That should ensure that younger players, possible signings and trialists among other individuals will all have greater chances to work with the club to aid their personal and professional development.

Tottenham also deserve credit for going about their application in a responsible way with the EI’s report suggesting the club have tried to take in all viewpoints and will go about their plans for the lodge in a sustainable and responsible manner.

Enfield Borough Council are set to make the final call.
