Section 9 Variation or revocation of quality partnership scheme
23.This section provides for the variation or revocation of QP schemes. This will give flexibility both for future changes and for any circumstances where it may be necessary to revoke a scheme. The local transport authority may revoke a scheme before its end date, but only if all participating operators consent. Consent cannot be unreasonably withheld. If a variation requires the making of a traffic regulation order, then the variation will be subject to the procedures set out in section 5 and 6 of the Act. Unless modified by regulations made under section 11 any other variation or revocation is also subject to the procedures set out in sections 5 and 6.
