62FDevelopments of national significance: secondary consents

(a)an application (a “section 62D application”) is made to the Welsh Ministers under section 62D, and

(b)the Welsh Ministers consider that—

(i)a secondary consent is connected to the section 62D application, and

(ii)having regard to their functions in respect of that section 62D application, the decision on that consent should be made by them.

(2)Where the decision in respect of the secondary consent would (but for this section) be made by a person other than the Welsh Ministers, it is to be made by the Welsh Ministers.

(3)For this purpose—

(a)any application that is required to be made in respect of the secondary consent, and has not yet been made, is to be made to the Welsh Ministers instead of the person to whom it would otherwise be made, and

(b)if an application has already been made in respect of the secondary consent to a person other than the Welsh Ministers, it is to be referred to the Welsh Ministers instead of being dealt with by that person.

(4)Subject to the following provisions of this Act, in a case where (but for this section) the secondary consent would have been dealt with by another person, the secondary consent is to be dealt with by the Welsh Ministers as though the Welsh Ministers were that person.

(5)The decision of the Welsh Ministers on the secondary consent is final.

(6)A secondary consent is connected to a section 62D application, for the purposes of this section, if the secondary consent—

(a)is required in order for the development to which the section 62D application relates to be carried out,

(b)would facilitate the carrying out of that development, or

(c)would facilitate any re-development or improvement, or the achievement of any other purpose, carried out on or in relation to land in connection with that development.

62GDevelopments of national significance: supplementary provision about secondary consents

(1)The Welsh Ministers may give directions requiring the relevant person to do things in relation to a secondary consent in respect of which, by virtue of section 62F(2), a decision is to be made by the Welsh Ministers.

(2)The relevant person is the person by whom (but for section 62F) the decision as to whether to grant the secondary consent would have been made.

(3)The power to give directions under this section includes power to vary or revoke the directions.

(4)Regulations made by the Welsh Ministers may make provision for regulating the manner in which a secondary consent, or an application for secondary consent, is to be dealt with by the Welsh Ministers under section 62F.

(5)That provision may include provision—

(a)about consultation to be carried out by the Welsh Ministers before a secondary consent is granted or refused;

(b)requiring a person to provide a substantive response to any consultation carried out by virtue of the regulations (including about the requirements of a substantive response and the period within which it is to be provided).

(6)Regulations made by the Welsh Ministers may provide for an applicable enactment or requirement—

(a)to apply, with or without modifications, in respect of a secondary consent within subsection (1), or an application for such a consent, or

(b)not to apply in respect of such a consent or application.

(7)For this purpose an applicable enactment or requirement, in relation to a secondary consent within subsection (1), or an application for such a consent, is—

(a)any provision of or made under this Act, or of or made under any other enactment, in respect of consents of that kind;

(b)any requirements imposed by or under this Act, or any other enactment, in respect of consents of that kind.

and which, in either case, is of a description prescribed by regulations made by the Welsh Ministers.

(2)A description of consent or notice may be prescribed under subsection (1) only if—

(a)provision for that consent or notice would be within the legislative competence of the National Assembly for Wales, if the provision were contained in an Act of the National Assembly, and

(b)the consent or notice is one that legislation provides is to be given by a body exercising functions of a public nature (whether or not the body also exercises any other function).
