CHAPTER 4REVOCATION OF DIRECTION SUSPENDING THE RIGHT TO BUY AND RELATED RIGHTS

23Revocation of direction: power to apply

(1)A local housing authority may apply to the Welsh Ministers for the revocation of a direction issued under this Part if the authority concludes that the condition described in subsection (2) exists.

(2)The condition is that either—

(a)the demand for social housing to which the direction relates does not substantially exceed its supply or is not likely to do so, or

(b)even if demand does substantially exceed supply, or is likely to do so, that imbalance between supply and demand is not likely to increase as a result of the exercise of the right to buy and related rights.

24Application for revocation

A local housing authority’s application to the Welsh Ministers for revocation of a direction issued under this Part must be in writing and must explain why the authority has concluded that the condition described in section 23(2) exists.

25Decision of the Welsh Ministers on the application

(1)The Welsh Ministers may reject a local housing authority’s application under section 23 (without considering whether subsection (2) requires them to grant it) if they are of the opinion that the authority has failed to comply with a requirement imposed under section 27 in relation to the application.

(2)The Welsh Ministers must grant the application if they agree with the authority’s conclusion as to why the condition described in section 23(2) exists.

(3)If the Welsh Ministers grant the application, they must notify the local housing authority in writing of that fact and the direction ceases to have effect on the date on which such notice is given.
