Environmental law, corresponding regulations and liability for criminal environmental offences affect not only those that live in towns and cities, but also those lucky enough to inhabit rural areas. If you have been charged with an environmental offence, then there are steps that can be taken to improve your situation, whether you have been prosecuted by the Environment Agency (EA) or by the local authority.
Richard Wood of Criminal Matters advises on all issues relating to environmental law (such as contaminated land). He also has experience of dealing with offences arising out of marine or waterway pollution incidents.
Asbestos has become somewhat of an ‘Achilles Heal’ for numerous business sectors, but most particularly those concerned with constructions and demolition. The regulation of these issues is understandable, and if you think you may have been affected by a liability relating to the use and/or disposal of asbestos, then you might wish to take some expert legal advice about your situation.

If you have a problem with environmental nuisance issues, then Richard has extensive experience of dealing with enforcement measures undertaken by local authorities. These include enforcement notices in respect of noise nuisance, smoke pollution, and noxious smells emitted from commercial premises.
You may also need expert assistance to deal with breaches of enforcement or abatement notices in respect of pollution and nuisance issues. The potential criminal liability for these types of breaches can be extensive. Offences carry with them prison sentences, or in the case of corporate liability, heavy fines.
