Restrictions on the Use of Land covers the law and practice in a number of fields which impact on the use of land and there is considerable focus on remedies for the infringement of rights in, on or over land.

The areas covered include easements, town and village greens, public rights of way, restrictive covenants, assets of community value (and the right of community groups to bid for listed land) along with selected elements of planning law.

Coverage in the case of the latter is broken down under three heads, namely the fundamentals of development control, appeals and enforcement, together with a wide ranging review of the law and practice affecting conservation and enhancement of both natural and man-made environments.

The book aims to provide readily accessible answers to a whole range of problems which commonly arise in the day to day practice of land lawyers, developers and other professionals involved in the development and/or realisation of valuable land assets in either the private or public sectors.

Its advantage lies in the fact that it is a single up to date reference book covering a broad range of topics which might otherwise only be found in a number of standard specialist texts.

"a valuable guide for those involved in the development and use of land"

The Journal of Planning and Environmental Law

The clear benefit of a book such as this for practitioners is its ability to offer a wealth of information at your fingertips, so that it can be quickly referred to or read in detail, depending on need. It is a handy signpost for legislation and case law, so that users can go on to explore topics in more detail if required.
