Other areas of environmental law are similarly concerned, from the long-standing issue of the definition of “waste” and its application to the scope of environmental assessments, to the legitimacy of approval of water quality projects. If the jurisprudence on which all these foundations are shaken, all this and much more becomes uncertain and the impact of legal protection on the environment. Their importance is twofold. First, any legal uncertainty can be worrisome and increase the number and complexity of litigation that ends up in court – good news for lawyers, but less so for others, entrepreneurs, investors or environmentalists. But, more importantly, the potential to overturn the jurisprudence of the Court of Justice risks dismantling important areas of environmental legislation as it is applied today. in the absence of the European Commission (Commission) and the European Court of Justice (ECJ), how would the government be held accountable for its environmental performance and its success or failure to achieve the objectives? The “removal of control” from the law was a key part of the Brexit business and the new proposal could mean that EU legislation will have much less clout after the UK leaves the European Union. But this will have a price, uncertainty and a possible weakening of environmental protection, supported by the ECJ. The European Court of Justice has played an important role in ensuring that the protection measures agreed by The Member States are effectively respected. If national courts are free to take a different approach and opt for it, the impact of much of our environmental legislation could be compromised without the legislation being changed. Should they be given such control and, if so, how will they exercise it?
