Environmental law


Environmental law incorporates a broad range of legal topics, in general terms to do with the use of private and commercial property and its relationship with air, water and land. Planning law is the main component of environmental law that the general public and business come into contact with.

Other major topics include: air pollution regulation, waste management, water use, conservation and heritage, noise pollution and contaminated land. More technological areas of environmental law include those on biotechnology and nanotechnology.

In this section we outline some of the major ways in which these laws relate to private individuals and business, including the regulatory provisions of UK, EU and international environmental law.
