The fourth edition of Agricultural Law covers all aspects of the law governing agricultural property. This unique book gives detailed coverage of both farm tenancy law and the law governing land use in one easy-to-read and accessible text.

The General Permitted Development Order 2015 and changes to agricultural development rights
The Conservation of Habitats and Species Regulations 2010, and their impact on agricultural land use
Environmental permits under the Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2010
The introduction in 2015 of the Basic Payment Scheme, changes in the law of the EU's common agricultural policy, and their impact on farming in the UK
The 2015 changes to farm tenancy law recommended by the Tenancy Reform Industry Group (TRIG)
The 2015 Model Clauses on the maintenance and repair of fixed equipment for farm tenancy agreements
