Plans to redevelop Tottenham Hotspur’s former training ground would see 60 houses and a school for children with autism built on the site.

A total of 43 three-bedroom houses and 17 houses with four or five bedrooms could be built as an ‘enabling development’ to facilitate the construction of an autistic spectrum disorder school.

If successful, The Anderson foundation will build a 3,800sqm school to accommodate up to 128 pupils, aged four to 19, on the site in Luxborough Lane, Chigwell.

There would also be a mixed use games area, playing fields a minibus drop off area and 218 car parking spaces.

The school will employ 45 full-time and 155 part-time staff.
