Example text

The chapter concludes with a brief consideration of ways by which a reformed economic order might contribute to the change, and of the role of certain legal mechanisms in that process. Chapter 2 then introduces jurisdictional questions into the spatial issues that are central to the sustainability discussion. It envisages that mechanisms for the delivery of more ecological policy making must be conceived and supported at global, regional and local levels. The primary concern is to investigate how far a framework for sustainable development through international processes can be achieved.

These questions interweave at every stage with legal explanations, justifications and even capacities for change. To these indeed must be added new questions about the nature, value and efficacy of other rights systems, including human rights, recognised by law. As its title suggests, the book is also about land use. This is put forward as being at the fulcrum of attempts to find sustainable solutions. 3 By ready analogy for a lawyer, a special emphasis is laid upon relationships, although these are conceived as wider in scope than is generally the case: such as between the achievement of economic growth and sustainability; as likewise between environmental degradation and regulatory policy.

This therefore turns attention to the relationship between planning and environmental controls. As the inadequacy of markets, and their related legal mechanisms, has become gradually more apparent, xxxviii Introduction the response of political decision makers, as in other fields, has been to formulate a succession of regulatory approaches. For all the concern at the efficacy of commandand-control approaches, referred to above, the most recent decade has ushered in a new era of more comprehensive environmental regulation, characterised by increasingly integrated approaches to pollution control.
