Planning and Environmental Law in Ireland provides clear guidance on the laws of sustainable development in Ireland and explains how these laws should be implemented in practice. It draws your attention to the necessity for sustainable development and the underlying principles in this area of Irish law.
This book is intended for everyone involved in planning and environmental matters and helps you to decide, on a day-to-day basis, whether the implementation of a particular plan is appropriate or not.
Planning and Environmental Law in Ireland is completely up-to-date and deals with developments such as:
- The fundamental changes made by the Planning and Development (Amendment) Act 2010 affecting virtually every area of planning law
- Additional planning control on land and buildings, especially quarries
- The new provisions covering refusal of planning permission for past failures and taking estates in charge
- The latest legislation dealing with major accident hazards
- The effect of the ECJ decision in the Derrybawn Landslide case
- The fundamental changes in the law on environmental impact assessment and environmental impact statements
- The effects of the Planning and Development (Strategic Infrastructure) Act 2006
- The many new developments affecting conveyancing transactions including proposals to revise the Law Society's Standard Requisitions on Title
- Many EU cases including how professionals need to learn from past failures and avoid future pitfalls
This is an essential title for conveyancers, local authority planners and those in private practice, as well as lawyers dealing with the enforcement of planning and environmental law, or judicial review.
Members of the general public who have an interest in planning and environmental law, or who would like to know what rights they may have to participate in the process, will also find this a useful title.
