Section 27 – Recovery of grants for preservation etc. of listed buildings and conservation areas
138.Section 27 amends sections 52 and 70 of the 1997 Act which enable the Scottish Ministers and planning authorities to recover grants made under sections 51 and 69 of that Act. Section 51 is also amended (by subsection (2)) to enable planning authorities to impose conditions in grants.
139.These new provisions mean that Scottish Ministers and planning authorities can specify in a grant award letter the amount that would be recoverable (or set out the terms for calculating the amount that would be recoverable) when a condition of grant is either contravened or not complied with, or in the event the property is disposed of.
