The Environment Bill is set to receive Royal Assent in the Autumn this year. It is a landmark piece of legislation creating a new governance framework that will regulate how the nation manages biodiversity, water resources and air pollution to name just a few, and introducing conservation covenant agreements as an option for developers. This new regime will lean heavily on the planning system with environmental considerations, becoming a key factor in planning and development decision making. This means everyone involved in considering or advising on new developments needs to know how the new regime could impact on those plans. The Environment Act 2021: A Guide for Planners and Developers will be one of the first books available to provide a comprehensive overview of the Act specifically for the planning sector. Written by Tom Graham, a practising lawyer with many years of experience in environment and planning law, it answers the questions that planners and advisors will need to consider such as:
* What is an environmental impact assessment and how do you carry one out?
* What is net biodiversity gain and how is it calculated?
* When should you create a conservation covenant agreement?
* What planning obligations might arise from the need to manage air quality?
As well as practical commentary, the book includes the relevant sections of the Act, annotated by the author, so you will have the sources you need in one, handy volume. Due for publication soon after Royal Assent is granted in the Autumn, it will be the essential, practical guide to help navigate the new regime efficiently and profitably.
