  • Considers case law including Rylands v Fletcher, R v Goldstein, and Hunter v Canary Wharf Ltd, questioning court decisions which sit uncomfortably with accepted principles of nuisance
  • Addresses the impact of the Human Rights Act 1998 on private nuisance and in particular on local authorities
  • Includes relevant sections of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 making this a comprehensive and in-depth resource
Providing a detailed overview of the law of nuisance this book addresses contentious issues such as the distinction between the rule in Rylands v Fletcher and the law of private nuisance; the law that excludes personal injuries from the remit of nuisance, and the relationship between public and private nuisance. The book also considers statutory nuisance and the extent to which it can be seen to exceed private and public nuisances as well as utility of nuisance as an environmental tort. This book provides the most up-to-date and comprehensive treatment of the law of nuisance, drilling down todistinctions between these different types of nuisance as well as examining in detail the overlaps between them.
Readership: The primary market will be solicitors and barristers in all sizes of firms dealing with tort claims such as damage to land and buildings, or interference from noise pollution, etc. It will be particularly relevant for solicitors and barristers dealing with property disputes, and as public and statutory nuisance is also addressed, local authority solicitors and environmental lawyers will also form part of the relevant market. Academics specialising in tort form a small secondary potential market.
