(2) An existing disposal licence shall, on and after the relevant appointed day for licences, be treated as a site licence and shall continue in force for a period of 3 years from the relevant appointed day for licences; and accordingly it shall be variable and subject to revocation or suspension under this Part and may not be surrendered or transferred except under this Part.

(3) An existing resolution of a district council shall, on and after the relevant appointed day for resolutions, have effect as if it were a waste management licence subject to the conditions specified in the resolution pursuant to Article 13(3)(d) of the 1978 Order and shall continue in force for a period of 3 years from the relevant appointed day for resolutions; and accordingly it shall be variable and subject to revocation or suspension under this Part and may not be surrendered or transferred except under this Part.
