The Environment Act 1995 is a landmark in the development of environmental law in the United Kingdom. The creation of powerful, wide-ranging new environmental agencies for England, Wales and Scotland is a central feature of the new legislation. This book provides a single source detailing the extensive functions of these new bodies, and examines their significant powers of conservation and pollution control.;The book also explains the other important changes made by the Act, including: powers to enforce land owners to clear up contaminated land; new law on abandoned mines; new powers for local authorities to control atmospheric pollution from cars; regulations on recycling and grants for conservation; and the establishment of new authorities to run the national parks.;The book should be of interest to all student and practitioners involved in environmental, planning and local government law. Peter Lane and Monica Peto are co-authors of ""Blackstone's Guide to the Transport and Works Act 1992"".
