Uniwersytet Mikołaja Kopernika w Toruniu en-US Polish Yearbook of Environmental Law 2084-8595 Personal scope of the obligation to maintaining cleanliness and order on the property https://apcz.umk.pl/PYEL/article/view/36015 <p>Pursuant to the Act on Maintaining Cleanliness and Order on Real Estate, the statutory obligations related to maintaining cleanliness and order on real estate – including the payment obligations resulting from the legal model of municipal waste management – have been assigned to the real estate owner. At the same time, for the purposes of this particular legal regulation, the legislator has introduced a separate definition of the real estate owner, thus including not only the owner from the civil perspective, but also other entities managing the real estate, including co-owners, perpetual usufructuaries and organizational units and persons managing or using real estate. The adoption in the Act on Maintaining Cleanliness of a broad, scope definition of the owner of real estate causes, in specific factual situations, serious doubts as to the actual scope of personal obligations under the Act on Maintaining Cleanliness. The subject of this article is to present the definition of the property owner adopted in the Act on Maintaining Cleanliness as a determinant of the scope of obligations arising from this Act.</p> Małgorzata Szalewska Copyright (c) 2020 Małgorzata Szalewska https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nd/4.0 2020-03-15 2020-03-15 9 7 20 10.12775/PYEL.2019.001 Environmental decision as an obligatory element of road investments in the Republic of Poland https://apcz.umk.pl/PYEL/article/view/29592 <p>Analysis of the effective regulations on the territory of the Republic of Poland allows to assume that the requirements of environmental protection are one of the strategic requirements related to the implementation of road investments.

This Act provides for a division of public participation into: public participation in decision making (Art. 33-38) and public participation in the preparation of documents (Art. 39-43). The author describes one by one the solutions that ensure public participation in procedures in individual matters settled by way of administrative decisions, and the solutions that ensure public participation in the process of preparing documents for which this participation is obligatory. In conclusion, the author presents specific rights of environmental organisations related to public participation, as environmental organisations, by referring to their statutory objectives and declaring their willingness to participate in procedures requiring public participation, participate in these procedures as a party.</p> Anna Folgier Copyright (c) 2020 Polish Yearbook of Environmental Law https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nd/4.0 2020-03-15 2020-03-15 9 33 50 10.12775/PYEL.2019.003 Administrative and legal aspects of hydraulic engineering (selected issues) https://apcz.umk.pl/PYEL/article/view/36014 <p>The subject of analysis in the article are selected administrative and legal issues of hydraulic engineering.
