3.  Where the district council decides to authorise a treatment pursuant to paragraph 2, it shall inform the applicant in writing and state the date from which the authorisation for commercial use of the treatment has effect.

4.  Where the district council refuses to authorise a treatment pursuant to paragraph 2, it shall inform the applicant in writing, stating its reasons.

7.  Where the district council has informed an applicant under paragraph 4 of its refusal to authorise a treatment under paragraph 2 or withdraws authorisation of a treatment under paragraph 6, the person who wishes to carry out the treatment may apply to the Agency for a review of that decision.

8.  Upon receiving the application for review, the Agency shall —
