The initial number of seats in the planning application was for 61,461.

And the plans have been approved by the local council after consultation – ensuring that the ground will be house more supporters than bitter rivals Arsenal.
The biggest change made by Tottenham to the plans is an increase of 500 seats to the single-tier south stand.
That redesign of the seating arrangements ensured that their new overall capacity increased by 0.16 per cent.
A statement confirming the news said: “Improved seating layout design has meant that we have been able to increase seating in several areas of the stadium.
“This will now see our official capacity rise to a total of 61,559.
“The biggest gain will be in the single-tier South stand, which will now be able to accommodate 17,500 spectators, an increase of 500.
“The new stadium will be the largest capacity football club stadium in London.”
The news caps off a fine week for Spurs and their supporters.
They are still rejoicing in last weekend’s 2-0 Premier League victory over Arsenal that ensured the White Hart Lane side will finish above their rivals for the first time in 22 years.
