Now in its fifth edition, Environmental and Planning Law in New South Wales has become a standard reference work for academics, students and practitioners alike. Environmental and Planning laws continue to be among the most dynamic in terms of new developments at the State, national, and international levels, and the distinguished team of authors has thoroughly revised and updated this classic text. For the first time, the fifth edition brings together an authorial team of academics, judges, a Commissioner and solicitors to share their expertise and fresh insights. The book continues to provide an in-depth analysis of: managing environmental conflict; development, planning and assessment; biodiversity and heritage protection; energy, climate and water law; pollution control; and corporate social responsibility. The focus goes beyond NSW to take account of international as well as national developments, including a detailed analysis of the relevant Commonwealth law.
