Up creeks with paddles – kayaking for environmental information

11 September 2011 by

This time, not a post about the Environmental Information Regulations (posts passim), but a celebration of the North Norfolk sea, wind, and saltmarsh, by me and nearly 30 other kayakers on Saturday, in order to raise money for a fantastic website, Law and Your Environment. 

This site explains environmental law, a notoriously convoluted set of statutes and common law in simple terms; as the home page puts it,

The kind of problems covered are: fly tipping; noisy neighbours; graffiti; litter; dog mess; pollution; planning; wildlife; rights of way. You can find out where to go for help, who the regulator is and how to approach them, how the legal system works, and follow links to the original laws.

It is firmly designed for non-lawyers, but lawyers will find that they learn a thing or two. So it was worth us all getting wet, muddy and tired, albeit on a warm September evening, to try and keep the website up to date in a fast changing field. So this post is to spread the word about the site, and, if any reader, who thinks it is as good as I say it is, were to be so inclined, further sponsorship would not go amiss – follow this link
