What is environmental law?
Environmental law is a set of regulations that covers everything from climate breakdown to new developments in your town. If used properly, it can help protect the environment from harmful proposals like incinerators or new motorways.
Friends of the Earth's Legal and Planning Team has decades of experience using environmental law to support individuals and communities standing up for the environment. We help and defend people's right to:
- Take part in the government's land-use planning system.
- Use the law to protect the environment and public health.
- Get hold of environmental information.
