The key changes in this edition concern planning and assessment, energy and climate law. The book continues to provide effective integration of planning and assessment provisions with environmental law topics such as pollution control, broadly defined; the protection of biodiversity and heritage; natural resource issues such as energy and water; global and domestic attempts to deal with climate change; and corporate social responsibility. The focus goes beyond NSW to take account of international as well as national developments, including detailed analysis of the relevant Commonwealth law.

Reviews of previous editions:
The book warrants a close reading for those interested in the subjects it covers. Cross-sectoral links are made which provide genuine insights into what the law does, or does not do, about particular issues, based on careful consideration of the policy framework underpinning those issues. For example, concern about climate change impacts appears as a major driver towards action in several contexts throughout the book, not just in the energy law and climate change chapter. … The strengths of the book are clear…a welcome addition to your environmental law library.
