9ZB Heritage partnership agreement: supplemental
65.New section 9ZB makes supplemental provision in relation to heritage partnership agreements. Section 9ZB(1) specifies that such agreements must be in writing and must make provision for review, termination and variation by the parties.
66.Section 9ZB(2) makes it clear that more than one scheduled monument can be the subject of an agreement, provided that in each case the Welsh Ministers and the owner are parties to the agreement.
67.Section 9ZB(3) places a duty upon the Welsh Ministers to make regulations to provide for: the consultation and publicity required for the creation or variation of a heritage partnership agreement; terms that must be included in a heritage partnership agreement; and the termination of a heritage partnership agreement or any provision thereof.
68.Section 9ZB(4) and (5) specifies the persons who must be consulted under the consultation arrangements for the creation or variation of a heritage partnership agreement. The consultation arrangements differ for a heritage partnership agreement that covers a scheduled monument and for one that covers land adjoining or in the vicinity of a scheduled monument.
69.Section 9ZB(6) provides that the regulations made by the Welsh Ministers enabling the termination by order of a heritage partnership agreement can contain supplementary, incidental, transitory, transitional or saving provision.
70.Section 9ZB(7) allows the regulations to disapply, apply or reproduce, with or without modification, any provisions of the 1979 Act for the purpose of heritage partnership agreements.
71.Section 9ZB(8) provides that heritage partnership agreements will only be binding on parties to those agreements. Future owners of the scheduled monument will not be bound by a heritage partnership agreement, nor will they be able to benefit from any scheduled monument consent granted by the agreement.
