Historic Environment (Wales) Act 2016

9ZK Temporary stop notice: offence

97.Section 9ZK(1) and (2) sets out the circumstances in which a person is guilty of an offence for contravening a temporary stop notice and allows a person to be convicted of different offences by reference to different days or periods. It will be possible, therefore, for a person to be convicted for more than one offence in relation to a temporary stop notice if it is breached repeatedly.

98.Section 9ZK(3) and (4) sets out the defences to an offence under this section.

99.Section 9ZK(5) provides that the penalty for the offence of contravening a temporary stop notice is an unlimited fine. Since deliberate damage to a monument may be prompted by the prospect of financial gain, the courts are to have regard to any financial benefit the person convicted may have received or be likely to receive as a result of the offence when determining the amount of any fine to be imposed.
