Amendment of drainage schemes

16.(1) Where, in the course of carrying out works specified in a drainage scheme, the Department considers that any provisions of that scheme ought to be substantially varied, it may, subject to paragraphs (2) and (3), after approval by the Drainage Council and after giving notice to—

(a)such person as the Department considers likely to be materially affected; and

(b)any person who, or EEA State which, made representations under Article 12A(4)(e) or Article 12D or Article 12G,

direct that such variations be made in the scheme as appears to be necessary.

(2) The Department shall not direct that any variation be made in a drainage scheme unless it has first taken into consideration—

(a)the environmental statement and any additional information;

(b)the works specified in the scheme as the Department proposes to vary it;

(c)any representations made in accordance with Article 12A(4)(e) or Article 12D or Article 12G;

(d)the direct and indirect effect of the works on the environmental factors specified in Schedule 2C; and

(e)any determination made by the Drainage Council under Article 12H(3) or, as the case may be, any consent or refusal of consent given by the Commission under Article 12H(10)(c) and any conditions attached to such consent.

(3) Where, pursuant to paragraph (1), the Department gives notice of the variation of a drainage scheme which has been made subject to an environmental statement such notice shall be given in writing and shall indicate the reasons and considerations upon which the variation was based and that the Department has taken into consideration the matters specified in paragraph (2).

(4) Where a direction given under this Article varies a drainage scheme, that scheme shall have effect, and be deemed always to have had effect, subject to that direction, and, accordingly, references in this Order to a drainage scheme shall, in relation to that scheme, be construed, and have effect as referring to that scheme as varied by that direction.

(5) A direction given under this Article shall not have effect so as to authorise the Department to purchase land compulsorily for the purposes of the drainage scheme otherwise than in accordance with, and subject to, the provisions of Article 10(3) and(4) and Schedule 3..
