SCHEDULE 6COMPENSATION IN RELATION TO OFF-SITE CONDITIONS

1.  (1)  This Schedule applies in any case where–

(b)a person whose consent is required has, pursuant to the requirements of regulation 9(13), granted, or joined in granting, to the operator any rights in relation to the land; and

(c)those rights, or those rights together with other rights, are such as will enable the operator to comply with any requirements imposed on the operator by the off-site condition.

“relevant interest” means an interest in land in respect of which rights have been granted pursuant to the requirements of regulation 9(13).

2.  In a case where this Schedule applies, any person who has granted, or joined in granting, the rights in question shall be entitled to be paid compensation under this Schedule by the operator.

(i)is attributable to the grant of the rights or the exercise of them;

(ii)does not consist of depreciation in the value of that interest; and

(iii)is loss or damage for which he would have been entitled to compensation by way of compensation for disturbance if that interest had been acquired compulsorily under the Acquisition of Land (Authorisation Procedure) (Scotland) Act 1947(1) in pursuance of a notice to treat served on the date on which the rights were granted;

(d)damage to, or injurious affection of, any interest in land to which the grantor is entitled which is not a relevant interest, and which results from the grant of the rights or the exercise of them;

(e)loss in respect of work carried out by or on behalf of the grantor which is rendered abortive by the grant of the rights or the exercise of them

(f)the amount of any valuation and legal expenses reasonably incurred by the grantor in granting the right and in the preparation of the application for and the negotiation of the amount of compensation (up to the point of referral to the Lands Tribunal for Scotland under paragraph 8(2)).

4.  (1)  Subject to sub-paragraph (2), an entitlement to compensation under this Schedule arises on the date of the grant of the rights.

(2) Where, after a grant of rights pursuant to regulation 9(13), the conditions of the permit which rendered the grant of rights necessary are upheld on the final determination of an appeal against those conditions, the entitlement to compensation arises on the date of the final determination of the appeal.

5.  (2)  An application for compensation under this Schedule shall be made by the grantor–

(a)within 12 months from the date on which the entitlement to compensation arises in the case of that grantor; or, as the grantor may decide,

(2) An application shall be made in writing (or in electronic form) to the operator to whom the rights were granted and delivered at or sent by pre-paid post to the last known address for correspondence of that person.

(3) The application shall contain, or be accompanied by–

6.  (1)  The amount to be paid by way of compensation under this Schedule shall be assessed in accordance with the following sub-paragraphs.

(2) The rules set out in section 12 of the Land Compensation (Scotland) Act 1963(2) (rules for assessing compensation) shall, so far as applicable and subject to any necessary modifications, have effect for the purposes of this paragraph as they have effect for the purpose of assessing compensation for the compulsory acquisition of an interest in land.

(3) No account shall be taken of any enhancement of the value of any interest in land, by reason of any building erected, work done or improvement or alteration made on any land in which the grantor is, or was at the time of erection, doing or making, directly or indirectly concerned, if the Lands Tribunal for Scotland is satisfied that the erection of the building, the doing of the work, the making of the improvement or the alteration was not reasonably necessary and was undertaken with a view to obtaining compensation or increased compensation.

(4) In calculating the amount of any loss under paragraph 3(e), expenditure incurred in the preparation of plans or on other similar preparatory matters, shall be taken into account.

(5) Where the interest in respect of which compensation is to be assessed is subject to a standard security, within the meaning of section 9 of the Conveyancing and Feudal Reform (Scotland) Act 1970(3)–

(a)the compensation shall be assessed as if the interest were not subject to that security;

(b)no compensation shall be payable in respect of the interest of the creditor (as distinct from the interest which is subject to the security); and

(c)any compensation which is payable in respect of the interest which is subject to the security shall be paid (subject to the maximum due thereunder) to the creditor in that security or, if there is more than one creditor, to the first ranking of such creditors and shall, in either case, be applied by such creditor as if it were proceeds of sale.

(c)in the case of compensation payable by virtue of paragraph 3(f), the date on which the expenses become payable.

(3) If it appears to any person (“the first person”) that the first person may become liable to pay to another person (“the second person”) compensation under this Schedule or interest under this paragraph the first person may, if the second person requests in writing for the first person to do so, make one or more payments on account of such compensation or interest.

(4) If, after a payment has been made by any person under sub-paragraph (3)–

(a)it is agreed or determined that compensation or interest is not liable to be paid; or

the payment or, as the case may be, excess shall be recoverable by that person.

(b)where the operator and the grantor or such a creditor agree that payment is to be made in instalments at different dates, on the date agreed as regards each instalment;

(c)in any other case, subject to any direction of the Lands Tribunal for Scotland, as soon as reasonably practicable after the amount of the compensation has been finally determined.

(2) Any question of the application of paragraph 6(3) or of disputed compensation shall be referred to and determined by the Lands Tribunal for Scotland.

(3) In relation to the determination of any such question, sections 9 and 11 of the Land Compensation (Scotland) Act 1963 (procedure on reference to the Lands Tribunal and expenses)(4) shall apply as if–
