Legislating for sustainability: a framework for managing statutory rights obligations and restrictions affecting private land

By Pamela O'Connor, Sharon Christensen and William Duncan


The ad hoc growth of administrative controls on land use has produced\ud an information management problem. Land registries face growing\ud demands to record on the Torrens register particulars of rights,\ud obligations and restrictions created under public law statutes, in order\ud to reduce information costs, promote compliance and inform planning. As\ud sustainable management of land and natural resources will require more\ud legislative regulation, this paper proposes a framework of principles for\ud the more coherent and consistent management of public law controls on\ud private land use
