This practitioner work provides an account of environmental law, regulation and enforcement in the UK. It brings within one volume all the fast-evolving law in the field, presented and indexed in a way which enables even those not specializing in the area easily to find out what they need to know.;It deals, for example, with the law on pollution of all kinds, the control and management of waste and hazardous substances, including genetically modified organisms, and the relationship between environmental law and planning controls. Additionally, there are sections on European environmental law, and court, tribunal, and inquiry procedures.;The general editors and other contributors are all practising barristers who specialize in environmental and planning law. While offering insights for the specialist, the book aims to be of use to lawyers and others whose work is either general or lies mainly in other areas, but who are confronted from time to time by problems of environmental law.
