NEW BOOK PUBLISHED 2ND DECEMBER 2013


NUISANCE LAW AND ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
A study of nuisance injunctions in practice

By Dr Ben Pontin

FOREWORD by

Lord Carnwath JSC

This book about the common law's important contribution to environmental protection takes a practical - and novel - approach to nuisance law. It focuses on the social and environmental consequences of the enforcement of nuisance injunctions.

Quoted in the SUPREME COURT Judgment of 26 February 2014 in


Coventry and Others (Respondents) v. Lawrence and Another (Appellants)

"176. Ben Pontin in his valuable recent book Nuisance Law and Environmental Protection (2013) shows how since the middle of the 19th century common law nuisance has played an important complementary role to regulatory controls, one hand stimulating industry to find better technical solutions to environmental problems, and, on the other, stimulating the legislature to fill gaps in the regulatory system. He sees the present appeal as an important opportunity for the Supreme Court to review the proper role of this part of the law of nuisance in the modern world (p 184)."
