The Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000 ("CRWA 2000") made a number of fundamental changes to the law governing the notification and management of Sites of Special Scientific Interest ("SSSIs"). These were not only controversial, but also considerably strengthened the power of the Nature Conservancy Councils (English Nature, the Countryside Council for Wales and Scottish Natural Heritage) to impose mandatory management obligations on private landowners. Little wonder, then, that they should have been challenged under the Human Rights Act 1998 in several recent cases, in which the alleged incompatibility of the new powers with the European Convention of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms has been explored. © Sweet & Maxwell and Contributors.
