Product description

Environmental and Resource Management Law is a major component of modern legal practice. Legislative changes, especially the Resource Legislation Amendment Act 2017, along with recent litigation and trends have necessitated this comprehensive sixth edition. The authors introduce environmental law, its sources and institutions; before turning to focus on the Resource Management Act 1991 and other key pieces of environmental legislation. A wide range of topics are addressed, including: land use and subdivision, the resource consent process and appeals; the coastal environment including the EEZ Act; forests; mining and petroleum; water; marine pollution; air; hazardous substances; new organisms; noise; Maori and environmental law; heritage; landscape and visual; and climate change.
