Response to Tottenham Hotspur Football Club funding story
Haringey Council spokesperson said:
All decisions regarding investment in Tottenham or in relation to THFC are a matter of public record. In no way are we talking about £30m. In February 2012, our Cabinet approved a £27m investment package to fund a variety of projects in North Tottenham. The funding comprised of £18m of funding from the Greater London Authority (GLA) and £9m funding from the council. This was the joint funding package agreed for Tottenham following the 2011 riots.
From this funding, the council entered into a grant agreement with THFC earlier this year to contribute £7.5m for the public realm and heritage improvement works the club will be undertaking as part of its scheme. Again, this is a matter of public record. No other funding commitments have been made by the council or the GLA.
