Harbour works carried out without a decision

12.—(1) If a developer carries out harbour works to which it appears to the appropriate Department that these Regulations apply and which have not been the subject of a decision or consent under regulation 5(3) or (7), 6(4) or (8), 11(2) or this regulation –

(a)the appropriate Department shall serve notice in writing on the developer requiring him –

(i)if appropriate, to cease carrying out the harbour works forthwith; and

(ii)to supply the appropriate Department with such of the information referred to in regulation 6(3) as it may specify and within such period as it may specify; and

(b)the provisions of regulations 6(4) to (10), 7, 8, 10, 11 and 13 to 15 shall apply subject to the modifications set out in paragraph (2), whether or not an application referred to in regulation 5(1) or 6(1) is made.

(2) The modifications referred to in paragraph (1)(b) are –

(a)for “proposed harbour works”, wherever these words occur, there shall be substituted “harbour works”;

(b)for “are proposed to be”, wherever these words occur, there shall be substituted “have been”;

(c)where an application referred to in regulation 5(1) or 6(1) is not made, regulation 7(1)(b) and 8(4)(a) shall be omitted; and

(d)in regulation 6(10), after “in such form” there shall be inserted “and within such period”.

(3) If the developer no longer owns, occupies or enjoys any use of the harbour works which have been carried out when the appropriate Department decides to serve a notice under paragraph (1) the notice may be served on any other person who for the time being owns, occupies or enjoys any use of the harbour works, and the references to the developer in paragraphs (1), (4) and (5) shall have effect as a reference to the person on whom the notice is served.

(4) If a developer fails to supply the appropriate Department with such of the information referred to in regulation 6(3) as is specified in a notice served under paragraph (1) within the period specified therein, the appropriate Department shall make such investigations as it considers necessary to enable it to determine whether the harbour works constitute a project falling within Annex I or Annex II to the Directive, and in the case of a project falling within Annex II to the Directive whether (taking into account the selection criteria) the harbour works constitute a relevant project.

(5) Where regulation 6(10) applies as modified by paragraph (2)(d), and the developer fails to comply with the appropriate Department’s direction, the appropriate Department shall refuse consent in respect of the harbour works.
