This guide is intended to lead the reader through part of the ever-increasing maze of environmental legislation. It provides information on planning, conservation, pollution, the system of building control, statutory responsibilities of the builder, water services, compulsory purchase and financial aid. The book offers a brief outline of the procedures and policies relating to English law, and points out the key requirements in each area. The provisions are scattered throughout a large number of enactments, statutory orders and instruments. This book has collected together these dispersed provisions, and should therefore provide a useful first point of reference for all those seeking information, and who need to advice on the legislation affecting the built environment. There are also details of secondary sources of information.
