Section 17 - Compliance notices
31.This section deals with the breach of a site licence condition. It provides that, where it appears to a local authority that an owner of land is failing to comply with a licence condition, the local authority may serve a compliance notice on that owner, which contains the information specified in subsection (1), including the steps that the owner must take to ensure that the licence condition is complied with.
32.The provisions provide the owner with a right of appeal against the compliance notice to a Residential Property Tribunal. They also provide the local authority with a power to revoke a compliance notice or to vary it by extending the time period specified for compliance with the notice. This extension can be given in response to an application made by the owner of land on whom the notice was served, or on the local authority’s own initiative.
