As a general approach, unsuccessful litigants seeking to enforce environmental legislation in the public interest ought not to be ordered to pay costs unless, of course, they litigate unreasonably, frivolously or vexatiously. Furthermore, the courts will only grant applications for security for costs against litigants seeking to enforce environmental legislation in the public interest, if good grounds exist to do so.
