Dear Ms Adams,

Re: Freedom of Information Act Request ref: LBH/6147717

 

Thank you for your request for information received on 29 March 2017, in
which you asked for the following information:

 

A breakdown of public subsidy to Tottenham Hotspur.

 

My response is as follows:

 

In February 2012, Cabinet approved a £27m Funding and Investment Package
for North Tottenham. The funding comprised of £18m of funding from the
Greater London Authority (GLA) and £9m funding from the council. This
included a decision to allocate £8m of funding for ‘public realm and
heritage improvements’ linked to the Northumberland Development Project
(the new stadium and associated development currently underway by
Tottenham Hotspur) scheme.

 

Via a Cabinet Member Decision to be taken in April 2017, we will be
seeking approval to enter into formal grant agreements with THFC to
contribute £7.5m (£500,000 of the £8m funding has previously been used to
contribute to the North Tottenham Heritage Initiative) for the public
realm and heritage improvement works Tottenham Hotspur Football Club
(THFC) will be undertaking as part of the NDP scheme. 

 

Since February 2012, the Council has also undertaken the following funding
transactions with THFC:

 

§  £32,898 to THFC for services such as room hire

§  £644,215 to the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation (THFC’s charitable
foundation)  for the delivery of programmes relating to health, social
care, community development, education and employment

§  £4,000 to Tottenham Hotspur Ladies Football Club for sports and
activity programmes

 

You can access a copy of the original 2012 Cabinet report in the Cabinet
meeting pack here:

 The report specific to the funding package for Tottenham Hotspur can be
found on page 143 of the document (page 149 of the pdf).
