(2) SEPA shall impose such conditions as it considers necessary or expedient for the purposes of protection of the water environment.

(3) A condition imposed under this regulation may require an applicant to carry out works or do other things in relation to land not within the ownership or control of that applicant.

(4) Where a condition is imposed in accordance with paragraph (3), it shall be the responsibility of the applicant to obtain all consents necessary to allow the condition to be complied with.

(5) When considering whether to grant an authorisation under paragraph (1), and when imposing conditions in respect of a licence under this regulation, SEPA–

(a)shall have regard to all controlled activities being carried on or likely to be carried on in the area of the water environment likely to be affected by the controlled activity to which the application relates;

(b)may have regard to any agreement reached between different persons concerning controlled activities carried on in the relevant area of the water environment.

(a)the charge referred to in regulation 12(a) is payable, and
