Le service public environnemental

Abstract : The notion of public service is primarily functional and environmental law is purpose driven. Public service and environmental law rally around the concept of public interest. Such rallying makes sense in that it gives life to environmental public service. As such, recognition of public interest in environmental law is the bedrock of environmental public service’s existence and the environmental purpose of this public interest makes it possible to distinguish, in existing law, environmental public services from those which are not. The specificities of environmental law feed into the concept of public interest to create a heritage interest. The latter involves processes of public power, which aim to sustainably correct the use of environmental goods. This heritage dimension is found in the legal framework of the environmental public service whether it is with respect to the terms of organisation of this environmental public service – imposition of a particular territorial framework using the planning tool – or with respect to the terms of management of this public service – spatialisation of the laws of public service and the finalized types of finance. Overall, this study shows the true specificity of environmental public service – a category in itself within public services – resulting in particular features related to its purpose of environmental interest.
