Should the law of the seas apply to the subsurface?

With competing demands on the subsurface, including from the infrastructure needed to make our cities smarter and more sustainable, is it time for legislative frameworks to govern development of the subsurface? Liz Reynolds from Think Deep UK (and author of Underground Urbanism) talks about the group’s ongoing, cross disciplinary research into the spatial planning of the subsurface. With parallels to the UK’s Marine and Coastal Access Act 2009 & Marine Policy Statement, Elizabeth will look ahead to the potential for similar guidance to support the delivery of future urban infrastructure.
