2. The person issued with the environmental easement may request the court to—

(a) grant an environmental restoration order;
(b) grant any remedy available under the law relating to easements in respect of land.
3. The court shall have a discretion to adapt and adjust, so far as seems necessary to it, the law and procedures relating to the enforcement of the requirements of an environmental easement.
