(a)prospectively convert that condition into a conservation burden for the benefit of the public, and

(b)nominate a conservation body or the Scottish Ministers to have title to enforce that burden,

by executing and registering a notice.

(2)Subsection (1) applies only where the consent of the nominee to being so nominated is obtained—

(a)in a case where sending a copy of the notice, in compliance with section 75(2), is reasonably practicable, before that copy is so sent, and

(b)in any other case, before the notice is executed.

(5)If subsections (1) to (4) are complied with and immediately before the appointed day the qualifying condition is still enforceable by the person who executed and registered the notice under subsection (1) (or that person’s successor) then, on that day, the qualifying condition becomes a conservation burden—
