    Abstract

    Evaluates the effectiveness of existing rules governing statutory duty in an environmental context. Comments on the shortcomings of the regime revealed by the House of Lords ruling in Marcic v Thames Water Utilities Ltd and the Outer House decisions in Weir v East of Scotland Water Authority and Magnohard Ltd v United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority. Discusses the statutory duties for sustainable development introduced by water law reforms, the extent to which these are likely to be enforceable and whether a more strategic approach is required to improve access to environmental justice.
