Environmental and resource management law has become a major component of legal practice throughout New Zealand. A key factor of the development has been the introduction of the Resource Management Act 1991 and the Hazardous Substances and New Organisms Act 1996. New or amending legislation continues to occur on an almost continuous basis. The Courts, especially the Environment Court, are also issuing many decisions that are influencing the interpretation and application of our environmental laws in a significant manner. It is no coincidence that one of the first decisions of the new Supreme Court was on the Resource Management Act notification provisions. All of these changes have necessitated a third edition of this text which brings the law current up to 31 August 2005, including the Resource Management Amendment Act 2005.
The 3rd edition of Environmental and Resource Management Law features three new chapters, Coastal environment, Maori and environmental law, and Environmental law and heritage, and as with the previous edition, the work provides a comprehensive introduction to modern environmental law. The book then focuses on the Resource Management Act, and substantive topics of environmental law, before providing chapters on procedural aspects of environmental law important to practitioners. A discussion of resource consent procedures is to be found early on in the text and there are separate chapters on environmental assessment, environmental litigation and statutory remedies. This book is intended primarily for practitioners working in environmental and resource management law. The text will also be useful for students, since it covers the same ground as many environmental and resource management law courses taught in New Zealand universities and other educational institutions.
