This section has no associated Explanatory Memorandum

143.—(1) A person having an estate in the land to which a hazardous substances contravention notice relates or a person to whom paragraph (2) applies may, at any time before the date specified in the notice as the date on which it is to take effect, appeal to the planning appeals commission against the notice, whether or not a copy of it has been served on that person.

(2) This subsection applies to a person who—

(a)on the date on which the hazardous substances contravention notice is issued occupies the land to which it relates by virtue of a licence; and

(b)continues to occupy the land as aforesaid when the appeal is brought.

(3) An appeal may be brought on any of the following grounds—

(a)that in respect of any contravention of hazardous substances control specified in the notice, hazardous substances consent ought to be granted for the quantity of hazardous substance present on, over or under the land, or as the case may be, the condition concerned ought to be discharged;

(b)that the matters alleged to constitute a contravention of hazardous substances control have not occurred;

(c)that those matters (if they occurred) do not constitute a contravention of hazardous substances control;

(d)that copies of the hazardous substances contravention notice were not served as required by section 162(4);

(e)that the steps required by the notice to be taken exceed what is necessary to remedy any contravention of hazardous substances control;

(f)that any period specified in the notice in accordance with section 162(5)(b) falls short of what should reasonably be allowed.

(4) An appeal under this section must be made by serving written notice of the appeal on the planning appeals commission before the date specified in the hazardous substances contravention notice as the date on which it is to take effect and such notice must indicate the grounds of the appeal and state the facts on which it is based.

(5) Before determining an appeal under this section, the planning appeals commission must, if either—

(a)the appellant; or

(b)the council or as the case may be, the Department so desires, afford to each of them an opportunity of appearing before and being heard by the commission.

(6) Sections 41 and 45(2) shall apply, with any necessary modifications, in relation to an appeal to the planning appeals commission under this section as they apply to an application for planning permission to the council or the Department.

(7) Omitted.

(8) Subject to subsection (9), the validity of a hazardous substances contravention notice shall not, except by way of an appeal under this section, be questioned in any proceedings whatsoever on any of the grounds on which such an appeal may be brought.

(9) Subsection (8) shall not apply to proceedings brought under section 147 against a person who—

(a)has held an estate in the land since before the hazardous substances contravention notice was issued;

(b)was not served with a copy of the hazardous substances contravention notice served; and

(c)satisfies the court that—

(i)that person did not know and could not reasonably have been expected to know that the hazardous substances contravention notice had been issued; and

(ii)that person's interests have been substantially prejudiced by the failure to serve him or her with a copy of it.
