(b)in accordance with section 10 of the [1906 c. 25.] Open Spaces Act 1906 (duty of local authority to maintain open spaces and burial grounds),

the land shall by virtue of the disposal be freed from any trust arising solely by virtue of its being land held in trust for enjoyment by the public in accordance with the said section 164 or, as the case may be, the said section 10.

(3)Subsection (4) below shall apply if—

(a)the construction of the authorised works shall not have begun within the period specified in section 55 (2) (Planning permission) of this Act, or

(4)Where this subsection applies, the Secretary of State may, on an application made in accordance with subsection (5) below by any interested person, make an order vesting the designated land or any part of that land in such person as he may determine on the same terms as the adjoining land is held or on such other terms as he shall consider appropriate, being terms which secure that the designated land (or that part of it) is preserved or regulated as a park, recreational ground or public open space for the enjoyment of the public.

(5)An application under subsection (4) above shall be made in writing and—

(a)in a case falling within paragraph (a) of subsection (3) above, within 12 months of the end of the period referred to in that paragraph, or

(b)in a case falling within paragraph (b) of that subsection, within 12 months of the repeal of the provisions referred to in that paragraph.

(6)The Secretary of State shall not make an order under subsection (4) above in relation to any land unless he is satisfied that the land is no longer required for the purposes of Tramlink; and before making such an order he shall give to the owner, lessee or occupier of the land the opportunity of making representations.
