Derby City Council's attempt to block a proposed shopping arcade by citing the traditional rights of the council's market has been thwarted by a High Court decision.
In Shops Centre had gone to the High Court in October seeking declaratory relief and arguing that its proposed shopping centre would not constitute a rival and therefore contravene the Derby Council's traditional market rights.

Edward Cousins, a barrister of 11 Stone Buildings, acted for In Shops.
