EU Environmental and Planning Law Aspects of Large-Scale Projects

Edited by: Bernard Vanheusden, Lorenzo Squintani

Governments, companies, environmental associations and citizens all over the EU are struggling with large scale projects. On the one hand large scale projects can contribute to economic development, on the other hand they often also raise environmental concerns. Consequently, large scale projects are excellent examples of the difficulty in balancing economic development with environmental protection. In order to promote the legal thinking about all kinds of environmental and planning law aspects of large scale projects, the second European Environmental Law Forum (EELF) Conference was held in September 2014. The conference's central topic was "Environmental and Planning Law Aspects of Large Scale Projects," with a focus on: the role of spatial and environmental planning; permitting and review procedures; critical sectoral regimes; and horizontal measures.
