ABSTRACT
The article reports on the decision of the Royal Agriculture Society of England (RASE) and a trust established by the previous owners of Stoneleigh to resolve their legal dispute over the future development of the site of the Royal Show. RASE has put the showground up for sale when the trust opposed the plans to develop the site into a National Centre for Rural Excellence. RASE chief executive John Moverley cites the importance of the Royal Show to the farming and food industries.
