Arrangements enabling responsibility for enforcement to be transferred

(2) A transfer may be made only by agreement between the enforcing authority which has the current responsibility and the authority to which it is proposed to transfer it, or by the Department.

(3) Where a transfer has been made, the authority to which responsibility has been transferred shall cause notice of the transfer to be given to persons affected by it, and where a transfer has been made by the Department, the Department shall cause notice of it to be given to both enforcing authorities concerned.

(4) The preceding paragraphs shall not apply to any part of premises occupied by the Crown or to any activity carried on there but responsibility for enforcing any of the relevant statutory provisions in respect of office activities and the premises used for them may be transferred by an agreement between the Executive, the district council concerned and the government department or other public body concerned.
