(c)the agreement—

(i)is determined by the expiration of the period specified in the agreement;

(b)in a case falling within sub-paragraph (1)(c)(ii), at any time after the agreement has been terminated by him; or

(c)in a case falling within sub-paragraph (1)(c)(iii), at any time after becoming the owner or occupier of the land by virtue of such a change in the ownership or occupation of the land as is mentioned in that sub-paragraph,

give to the licence holder a notice requiring him to remove the substation from the land; but the licence holder shall not be obliged to comply with such a notice except in the circumstances and to the extent provided by the following provisions of this paragraph.
