Pease, Chitty and Cousins: Law of Markets and Fairs cover


Containing in-depth commentary and analysis on the history of market and fair rights together with current developments in the law relating to franchise and statutory markets in the UK, this is the leading authority covering this complex area of law in the UK.

Concentrating on certain aspects of practice and procedure, it provides practical guidance for local government and land law practitioners in the UK and Ireland, local authorities and private market officers.

Offering legal analysis of all relevant UK and European legislation and case law, coverage includes:

- practice and procedure in relation to rival markets and car boot sales by use of the tort of disturbance
- UK regulation and control by means of byelaws, street trading and the laws relating to pedlars, tolls and stallage, and highway obstruction
- the law of markets, fairs and street trading in the Republic of Ireland

This new edition also provides a practical toolkit of model byelaws and precedents for market officers and local authorities as well as analysis of EU implications post Brexit.
