Lidl (UK) GMBH v Janet Ryder (Valuation Officer) [2013] UKUT 348 (LC)

DATE: 03 Oct 2013

A valuation officer had therefore underestimated the adverse effect the presence of four supermarkets in a town might have on another supermarket when she had adopted the approach that the competition demonstrated a greater demand for space which would increase the value.
