Supplemental powers

Works in the Dock

14.—(1) Without prejudice to the other powers conferred by this Order or otherwise available to it, DLRL may within the designated area, for the purposes of or in connection with the construction, operation or maintenance of the authorised works and notwithstanding any interference thereby with any public or private rights—

(a)construct, place, alter, relocate or replace any work or structure whether temporary or permanent;

(b)close and de-water any part of the designated area and divert vessels and other craft from any part of the designated area;

(c)use, appropriate and dispose of any materials obtained by it in carrying out any such operations;

(d)remove or relocate any mooring;

(e)remove and relocate any vessel or structure sunk, stranded or abandoned, or any vessel which is moored or left, whether that vessel has been moored or left lawfully or not;

(f)temporarily moor or anchor vessels and structures and load and unload into and from such vessels or structures equipment, machinery, soil and any other materials in connection with the authorised works; and

(g)temporarily interfere with, occupy and use the bed, waters and dock walls within the designated area,

in such manner and to such extent as may appear to DLRL to be necessary or convenient.

(2) Except in the case of emergency, DLRL will use its reasonable endeavours to notify the owner of any mooring and the owner or master of any vessel or structure affected by the proposal to exercise the powers of paragraph (1)(d) or (e) before the exercise of that power.

(3) During the period of closure referred to in paragraph (1)(b), all rights of navigation along, and all obligations of the Board to maintain for navigation any waters within, the designated area or part thereof so closed, shall be suspended and unenforceable against the Board.

(4) DLRL shall pay compensation to any person entitled to compensation under the 1961 Act who suffers any loss or damage from the exercise of the powers conferred by paragraph 1(a) and (d).

(5) Any dispute as to a person’s entitlement to compensation under paragraph (4), or as to the amount of the compensation shall be determined under Part 1 of the 1961 Act.

(6) In this article “designated area” means that part of the Dock within the Order limits.

Discharge of water

15.—(1) DLRL may use any watercourse or any public sewer or drain for the drainage of water in connection with the construction, operation or maintenance of the authorised works and for that purpose may lay down, take up and alter pipes and may, on any land within the Order limits, make openings into, and connections with, the watercourse, sewer or drain.

(2) Any dispute arising from the exercise of the powers in paragraph (1) to connect to or use a public sewer or drain shall be determined as if it were a dispute under section 106 of the Water Industry Act 1991(1).

(3) DLRL shall not discharge any water into any watercourse, public sewer or drain except with the consent of the person to whom it belongs; and such consent may be given subject to such terms and conditions as he may reasonably impose but shall not be unreasonably withheld.

(4) DLRL shall not make any opening into any public sewer or drain except in accordance with plans approved by, and under the superintendence (if provided) of, the person to whom the sewer or drain belongs, but such approval shall not be unreasonably withheld.

(5) DLRL shall not, in the exercise of the powers conferred by this article, damage or interfere with the bed or banks of any watercourse forming part of a main river.

(6) DLRL shall take such steps as are reasonably practicable to secure that any water discharged into a watercourse or public sewer or drain under the powers conferred by this article is as free as may be practicable from gravel, soil or other solid substance or oil or matter in suspension or any other polluting material.

(7) This article does not authorise the entry into controlled waters of any matter whose entry or discharge into controlled waters is prohibited by section 85(1), (2) or (3) of the Water Resources Act 1991(2).

(8) In this article—

(a)“public sewer or drain” means a sewer or drain which belongs to a sewerage undertaker, the Environment Agency, an internal drainage board, a local authority, or a harbour authority within the meaning of the Harbours Act 1964(3);

(b)“watercourse” includes all rivers, streams, ditches, drains, cuts, culverts, dykes, sluices, sewers and passages through which water flows, except a public sewer or drain; and

(c)other expressions used both in this article and in the Water Resources Act 1991 have the same meaning as in that Act.

Protective works to buildings

16.—(1) Subject to the following provisions of this article, DLRL may at its own expense and from time to time carry out such protective works to any buildings lying within the Order limits as DLRL considers to be necessary or expedient.

(2) Protective works may be carried out—

(a)at any time before or during the construction, in the vicinity of the building, of any part of the authorised works; or

(b)after the completion of the construction of that part of the authorised works in the vicinity of the building at any time up to the end of the period of 5 years beginning with the day on which that part of the authorised works is first opened for use.

(3) For the purpose of determining how the functions under this article are to be exercised, DLRL may enter and survey any building falling within paragraph (1) and any land within its curtilage.

(4) For the purpose of carrying out protective works under this article to a building, DLRL may (subject to paragraphs (5) and (6))—

(a)enter the building and any land within its curtilage; and

(b)where the works cannot be carried out reasonably conveniently without entering land which is adjacent to the building but outside its curtilage, enter the adjacent land (but not any building erected on it).

(5) Before exercising—

(a)a right under paragraph (1) to carry out protective works to a building;

(b)a right under paragraph (3) to enter a building and land within its curtilage;

(c)a right under paragraph (4)(a) to enter a building and land within its curtilage; or

(d)a right under paragraph (4)(b) to enter land,

DLRL shall, except in the case of emergency, serve on the owners and occupiers of the building or land not less than 14 days' notice of its intention to exercise that right and, in a case falling within sub-paragraph (a) or (c), specifying the protective works proposed to be carried out.

(6) Where notice is served under paragraph (5)(a), (c) or (d), the owner or occupier of the building or land concerned may, by serving a counter-notice within the period of 10 days beginning with the day on which the notice was served, require the question whether it is necessary or expedient to carry out the protective works or to enter the building or land to be referred to arbitration under article 47 (arbitration).

(7) DLRL shall compensate the owners and occupiers of any building or land in relation to which the powers of this article have been exercised for any loss or damage arising to them by reason of the exercise of those powers.

(8) Where—

(a)protective works are carried out under this article to a building; and

(b)within the period of 5 years beginning with the day on which the part of the authorised works constructed in the vicinity of the building is first opened for use, it appears that the protective works are inadequate to protect the building against damage caused by the construction or operation of that part of the works,

DLRL shall compensate the owners and occupiers of the building for any loss or damage sustained by them.

(9) Without prejudice to article 46 (no double recovery), nothing in this article shall relieve DLRL from any liability to pay compensation under section 10(2) of the 1965 Act.

(10) Any compensation payable under paragraph (7) or (8) shall be determined, in case of dispute, under Part 1 of the 1961 Act.

(b)“protective works”, in relation to a building, means—

(i)underpinning, strengthening and any other external or internal works the purpose of which is to prevent damage which may be caused to the building by the construction, maintenance or operation of the authorised works;

(ii)any external or internal works the purpose of which is to remedy any damage which has been caused to the building by the construction, maintenance or operation of the authorised works; and

(iii)any external or internal works the purpose of which is to secure the safe operation of the authorised works or to prevent or minimise the risk of such operation being disrupted.
