General information on environmental law


For practical purposes, individuals and business will most likely come into contact with environmental law when they are proposing development of, or change in the use of, their land or property. Planning law and the requirement to undertake an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) are the main aspects that require legal advice.


In this section we set out the basics of these topics, as well as how regulation of air, water and land use might affect you.
