When Does Land "Relate To" A Development Application? North Sydney Council V Ligon 302 Pty Ltd, Michael Weir 2010 Bond University

When Does Land "Relate To" A Development Application? North Sydney Council V Ligon 302 Pty Ltd, Michael Weir

Michael Weir

Extract: A development application normally relates to land which is wholly within the control of the developer. Complications arise when an aspect of the proposal, for example access or a buffer area, requires some use of adjoining land which is not within the developer's control. If the developer is obliged to obtain the prior consent of the owner of the adjoining land in all cases, there will be a significant impact upon the development potential of land. The High Court will be considering the issue on 20 June 1996. Their decision may clarify the position in NSW, with implications ...

Customary International Law In The 21st Century: Old Challenges And New Debates, Roozbeh (Rudy) B. Baker 2010 University of Surrey

Customary International Law In The 21st Century: Old Challenges And New Debates, Roozbeh (Rudy) B. Baker

Roozbeh (Rudy) B. Baker

This Article will survey the new scholarship that has emerged in international law to challenge the two traditional sources of customary norms, state practice and opinio juris. With the recent growth, in the international system, of self-contained international criminal tribunals, new challenges facing international law have emerged. Institutionally structured as self-contained legal regimes, international legal tribunals such as the ICTY, ICTR, and now the ICC have nevertheless contributed to a new paradigm within international law. The jurisprudence of these international criminal tribunals, on a wide range of international legal questions, has slowly begun to be elevated into norms of customary ...


Green Building Regulations: Extending Mandates To The Residential Sector, Mariel S. Dator 2010 Boston College Law School

Green Building Regulations: Extending Mandates To The Residential Sector, Mariel S. Dator

Boston College Environmental Affairs Law Review

As global warming has garnered significant attention in recent years, sustainability and green campaigns throughout the nation have become more common. Efforts to mitigate the human footprint have led to important developments in sustainable building design and construction. Although much attention is paid to other industry sectors such as transportation, buildings are a major source of greenhouse gases. Green buildings are more efficient and employ a variety of both construction techniques and renewable materials that result in less environmental harm and increased energy efficiency. Municipalities have encouraged large-scale green building projects through mandates or tax incentives. However, the residential sector ...


The Constitutional Interpretation/Construction Distinction: A Useful Fiction, Laura A. Cisneros 2010 Golden Gate University School of Law

The Constitutional Interpretation/Construction Distinction: A Useful Fiction, Laura A. Cisneros

Publications

Part I briefly describes the interpretation/construction distinction as an artificial construct - a fiction." The many commentaries on the subject encompass such a wide range of positions that the distinction, to the extent it truly exists at all, does so in the eye of each individual beholder. In Part II, I argue that the distinction, even if understood as a fiction, is nevertheless relevant because it can be used to bridge the expanse between originalist and nonoriginalist (or, if one prefers, between "strong" and "weak" originalist) theories of American constitutional interpretation. Put another way, the fiction is useful. In Part ...
