Archway Sheet Metal Works were objecting to a compulsory purchase order made by the club in March 2012, describing the order as “unlawful and invalid.”

The company’s site is situated just yards from Spurs’s current White Hart Lane ground, but was damaged in a fire in November last year.

Mr Justice Dove ruled that there was, “no legal flaw” in the ruling on the decision.

The new stadium complex is due to cost around £400m and is planned for completion by the start of the 2018/19 season.

The judge has confirmed that Archway have no right to appeal following the case, but can appeal within 21 days directly to the Court of Appeal.

The costs of the case have been awarded to the Secretary of State rather than either the football club or Haringey Council.
