Abstract

This article focuses on the interaction between the current law relative to water exploitation and the projected post-WEWS Act regime. In particular, it examines the question as to whether the imposition and operation of the licensing system will raise any human rights concerns, primarily under Article 1 of the First Protocol, and also Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR). Clearly the present extent of private property rights in Scotland's waters is a crucial issue.
