This section has no associated Explanatory Notes

(1)Where an owner of land is convicted of an offence under section 18(1), the local authority which issued the compliance notice may—

(a)take any steps required by the compliance notice to be taken by the owner but which have not been taken, and

(b)take such further action as the authority considers appropriate for ensuring that the condition specified in the compliance notice is complied with.

(2)Where a local authority proposes to take action under subsection (1), it must serve on the owner of the land a notice which—

(a)identifies the land and the compliance notice to which it relates,

(b)states that the local authority intends to enter the land,

(c)describes the action the local authority intends to take on the land,

(d)if the person whom the local authority proposes to authorise to take the action on its behalf is not an officer of the local authority, states the name of that person, and

(e)sets out the dates and times on which it is intended that the action will be taken (including when the local authority intends to start taking the action and when it expects the action to be completed).

(3)The notice must be served sufficiently in advance of when the local authority intends to enter the land as to give the owner of the land reasonable notice of the intended entry.

(4)In a case where the local authority authorises a person other than an officer of the local authority to take the action on its behalf, the reference in section 32(1) to an authorised officer of the local authority includes that person.

(5)The requirement in section 32(2) to give 24 hours’ notice of the intended entry, in its application to a case within this section, applies only in relation to the day on which the local authority intends to start taking the action on the land.
