(7)Section 61 of the 1845 Lands Act (estimation of purchase money and compensation) shall apply to the compulsory acquisition of such a right as if for the words from “value” to “undertaking” there were substituted the words “extent (if any) to which the value of the land in or over which the right is to be acquired is depreciated by the acquisition of the right”.

15Purchase of specific new rights over land

(1)Subject to section 27 below, the authorised undertaker may acquire compulsorily in or over any of the land shown on the Parliamentary plans within any limits of land to be acquired or used and specified in columns (1), (2) and (3) of Part 2 of schedule 6 to this Act, such servitudes or other new rights as it requires for the purposes mentioned in column (4) of that Part.

(3)For the purposes of section 28 of the Land Registration (Scotland) Act 1979 (c. 33), the powers conferred by this section shall constitute a real right and shall be an overriding interest.

(4)Any person, who is an owner or occupier of land in respect of which the power of appropriation conferred by subsection (1) above is exercised without the authorised undertaker acquiring any part of that person’s interest in the land, and who suffers loss by reason of the exercise of that power, shall be entitled to compensation to be determined, in case of dispute, under the 1963 Act.

if the tribunal is satisfied that the creation of the interest, the erection of the building, the execution of the works or the making of the improvement or alteration was not reasonably necessary and was undertaken with a view to obtaining compensation or increased compensation.

(2)In subsection (1) above “relevant land” means the land acquired from the person concerned or any other land with which that person is, or was at the time when the building was erected, the works executed or the improvement or alteration made, directly or indirectly concerned.

Supplementary

21Acquisition of part of certain properties

(1)This section shall apply instead of section 90 of the 1845 Lands Act in any case where—

(a)a notice to treat is served on a person (“the owner”) under that Act (as incorporated with this Act by section 52 below) in respect of—

(i)land forming only part of a house, building or factory; or

(ii)land consisting of a house with a park or garden,

(“the land subject to the notice to treat”); and

(b)a copy of this section is served on the owner with the notice to treat.

(2)In such a case, the owner may, within the period of 21 days beginning with the day on which the notice was served, serve on the authorised undertaker a counter-notice objecting to the sale of the land subject to the notice to treat and stating that the owner is willing and able to sell the whole (“the land subject to the counter-notice”).

(3)If no such counter-notice is served within that period, the owner shall be required to sell the land subject to the notice to treat.

(4)If such a counter-notice is served within that period, the question whether the owner shall be required to sell only the land subject to the notice to treat shall, unless the authorised undertaker agrees to take the land subject to the counter-notice, be referred to the tribunal.

(5)If on such a reference the tribunal determines that the land subject to the notice to treat can be taken—

(a)without material detriment to the remainder of the land subject to the counter-notice; or

(b)in the case of part of land consisting of a house with a park or garden, without material detriment to the remainder of the land subject to the counter-notice and without seriously affecting the amenity or convenience of the house,

the owner shall be required to sell the land subject to the notice to treat.

(7)If on such a reference the tribunal determines that—

(a)the land subject to the notice to treat cannot be taken without material detriment to the remainder of the land subject to the counter-notice; but

(b)the material detriment is confined to a part of the land subject to the counter-notice,

the notice to treat shall be deemed to be a notice to treat for the land to which the material detriment is confined in addition to the land already subject to the notice, whether or not the additional land is land which the authorised undertaker is authorised to acquire compulsorily under this Act.

(8)If the authorised undertaker agrees to take the land subject to the counter-notice, or if the tribunal determines that—

(a)none of the land subject to the notice to treat can be taken without material detriment to the remainder of the land subject to the counter-notice or, as the case may be, without material detriment to the remainder of the land subject to the counter-notice and without seriously affecting the amenity or convenience of the house; and

(b)that the material detriment is not confined to a part of the land subject to the counter-notice,

the notice to treat shall be deemed to be a notice to treat for the land subject to the counter-notice whether or not the whole of that land is land which the authorised undertaker is authorised to acquire compulsorily under this Act.

(9)In any case where by virtue of a determination by the tribunal under this section a notice to treat is deemed to be a notice to treat for less land or more land than that specified in the notice, the authorised undertaker may, within the period of 6 weeks beginning with the day on which the determination is made, withdraw the notice to treat; and if it does so it shall pay the owner compensation for any loss or expense occasioned to the owner by the giving and withdrawal of the notice, to be determined in case of dispute by the tribunal.

(10)Where the owner is required under this section to sell only part of a house, building or factory or of land consisting of a house with a park or garden, the authorised undertaker shall pay the owner compensation for any loss sustained by the owner due to the severance of that part in addition to the value of the interest acquired.

(b)on the entry on the land by the authorised undertaker under section 24 below,

whichever is sooner.

SCHEDULE 5Safeguarding works: procedure

(introduced by section 12)

1Safeguarding works may be carried out—

(a)at any time before or during the construction in the vicinity of the building of any part of the authorised works; or

(b)after the completion of the construction of that part of the authorised works, at any time up to the end of the period of five years beginning with the day on which that part of the authorised works is first opened for use.

2For the purpose of determining how the powers of section 12 of this Act are to be exercised, the authorised undertaker may enter and survey any building falling within subsection (1) of that section and any land belonging to it.

3For the purpose of carrying out safeguarding works to a building under section 12 of this Act, the authorised undertaker may (subject to paragraphs 4 and 5 below)—

(a)enter the building and any land belonging to it; and

(b)where the works cannot be carried out reasonably conveniently without entering land adjacent to the building, enter the adjacent land (but not any building erected on it).

4Before exercising—

(a)a right under section 12 of this Act above to carry out safeguarding works to a building;

(b)a right under paragraph 2 above to enter a building;

(c)a right under paragraph 3(a) above to enter a building or land; or

(d)a right under paragraph 3(b) above to enter land,

the authorised undertaker shall, except in the case of emergency, serve on the owners and occupiers of the building or land not less than 14 days' notice of its intention to exercise that right; and in a case falling within sub-paragraph (a) or (c) above the notice shall also specify the safeguarding works proposed to be carried out.

5Where notice is served under paragraph 4(a), (c) or (d) above, the owner or occupier of the building or land concerned may, by serving a counter-notice within the period of 10 days beginning with the day on which the notice was served, require the question whether it is necessary or expedient to carry out the safeguarding works or to enter the building or land to be referred to arbitration under section 34 of this Act.

6The authorised undertaker shall compensate the owners and occupiers of any building or land in relation to which the powers of this schedule have been exercised for any loss or damage arising to them by reason of the exercise of those powers.

7Where—

(a)safeguarding works to a building are carried out under section 12 of this Act; and

(b)within the period of five years beginning with the day on which the part of the authorised works constructed in the vicinity of the building is first opened for use, it appears that the safeguarding works are inadequate to protect the building against damage caused by the construction or operation of that part of the authorised works,

the authorised undertaker shall compensate the owners and occupiers of the building for any damage sustained by them.

8Nothing in this schedule shall relieve the authorised undertaker from any liability to pay compensation under the Land Clauses Acts.

9Any compensation payable under paragraph 7 above or under the Lands Clauses Acts shall be determined, in case of dispute, under the 1963 Act.
