(b)the holder and the Central Land Board agreed that a development charge determined by the Board should be set off against any payment which might thereafter become payable to the holder by reference to that holding, or

(c)the Central Land Board refrained from determining a development charge, which would otherwise have fallen to be determined by them, in consideration of a mortgage of the holding, with or without other claim holdings.

(2)AH pledges of claim holdings to the Central Land Board made by the same person, whether or not made at the same time, other than any pledge to which sub-paragraph (1) of paragraph 2 of this Schedule applies, shall for the purposes of this Part of this Schedule be treated collectively as a single pledge made at the time when the last of those pledges was made.

(3)Where a development charge covered by a pledge to the Central Land Board was determined in respect of land consisting of, or forming part of, the area of a claim holding—

(a)which was not comprised in the pledge, but

(b)whose holder immediately before the time of completion was the person who would, apart from the pledge, have been liable to pay the unpaid balance of the development charge,

then, for the purposes of this Part of this Schedule, that claim holding shall be deemed to have been comprised in the pledge.

(4)In this Part of this Schedule (but without prejudice to the Operation of paragraph 10 of the Tenth Schedule to this Act) references to the determination of a development charge in respect of any land are references to a determination of the Central Land Board that the charge was payable in (respect of the carrying out of operations in, on, over or under that land, or in respect of the use of that land.

(6)In relation to the pledging of a claim holding to the Central Land Board, references in this Part of this Schedule to a development charge covered by the pledge are references to a development charge the payment of which was secured, or partly secured, by the pledge, or, as the case may be, which was agreed to be set off against any payment which might become payable by reference to that claim holding.

(7)References in this Part of this Schedule to a mortgage of a claim holding do not include a mortgage which was subsequently discharged.

2(1)Where a claim holding was pledged to the Central Land Board in accordance with the special arrangements relating to owners of single house plots, that claim holding shall, subject to the next following sub-paragraph, be deemed to have been extinguished as from the time when it was pledged to the Board.

(2)Where a claim holding (in this sub-paragraph referred to as "the original holding") was pledged as mentioned in the preceding sub-paragraph, but was so pledged by reference to a plot of land which did not extend to the whole of the area of the original holding, the preceding sub-paragraph shall not apply, but there shall be deemed to have been substituted for the original holding, as from the time of the pledge, a claim holding with an area consisting of so much of the area of the original holding as was not comprised in that plot of land, and with a value equal to that fraction of the value of the original holding which then attached to so much of the area of the original holding as was not comprised in that plot.

3Without prejudice to the last preceding paragraph, where a pledge to the Central Land Board comprised one or more claim holdings, and the unpaid balance of the development charge covered by the pledge, or (if more than one) the aggregate of the unpaid balances of the development charges so covered, was equal to or greater than the value of the claim holding, or the aggregate value of the claim holdings, as the case may be, the holding or holdings shall be deemed to have been extinguished as from the time of the pledge.

4Where a pledge to the Central Land Board comprised only a single claim holding with an area of which every part either consisted of, or formed part of, the land in respect of which some development charge covered by the pledge was determined, and the last preceding paragraph does not apply, the value of that claim holding shall be deemed to have been reduced, as from the time of the pledge, by the unpaid balance of the development charge covered by the pledge, or (if more than one) by the aggregate of the unpaid balances of all the development charges covered by the pledge.

5(1)The provisions of this paragraph shall have effect in the case of a pledge of one or more claim holdings to the Central Land Board to which neither paragraph 3 nor paragraph 4 of this Schedule applies.

(a)a claim holding with an area consisting of so much of the area of the parent holding as consisted of, or formed part of, such land as is mentioned in the last preceding sub-paragraph, and with a value equal to that fraction of the value of the parent holding which then attached to that part of the area of the parent holding, and

(b)a claim holding with an area consisting of the residue of the area of the parent holding, and with a value equal to that fraction of the value of the parent holding which then attached to the residue of the area of the parent holding, and the claim holding referred to in head (a) of this sub-paragraph shall be allocated to the development charge in question, or (if more than one) to those development charges collectively.

(4)Paragraph 3 or paragraph 4 of this Schedule shall then apply in relation to each claim holding (if any) allocated in accordance with sub-paragraph (2) or sub-paragraph (3) of this paragraph to any development charge, or to any development charges collectively, as if the pledge had comprised only that claim holding and had covered only that development charge or those development charges.

(5)If, after the application of the preceding provisions of this paragraph, there remains outstanding any claim holding not allocated in accordance with those provisions, or any claim holding which (having been so allocated) is deemed to have been reduced in value but not extinguished, an amount equal to the aggregate of—

(a)the unpaid balance of any development charge covered by the pledge to which no claim holding was so allocated, and

(b)the amount (if any) by which the value of any claim holding so allocated which is deemed to have been extinguished falls short of the unpaid balance of the development charge, or the aggregate of the unpaid balances of the development charges, to which it was so allocated, shall be treated as having been deducted from the value of the claim holding so remaining outstanding, or (if more than one) as having been deducted rateably from the respective values of those claim holdings, and the value of any such holding shall be deemed to have been reduced accordingly as from the time of the pledge.

Part II

Adjustment by reference to payments in respect of war-damaged land

6(1)The provisions of this Part of this Schedule shall have effect where a payment under the scheme has become, or becomes, payable in respect of an interest in land, and a claim holding related (or would, apart from this Part of this Schedule, have related) to the like interest in the whole or part of that land, with or without any other land.

(2)In this Part of this Schedule " the scheme " means the scheme made under section fifty-nine of the Act of 1947, " the date of the scheme " means the twelfth day of December, nineteen hundred and forty-nine, and " payment under the scheme " means a payment which has become, or becomes, payable by virtue of the scheme.

(3)In relation to any payment under the scheme " the payment area ", in this Part of this Schedule, means the land in respect of which the payment became or becomes payable, and references to the amount of the payment shall be construed as references to the principal amount thereof, excluding any interest payable thereon in accordance with subsection (3) of section sixty-five of the Act of 1947.

(a)in the case of a payment of an amount equal to the value of the claim holding, the claim holding shall be deemed to have been extinguished as from the date of the scheme ;

(b)in the case of a payment of an amount less than the value of the claim holding, the value of the claim holding shall be deemed to have been reduced, as from the date of the scheme, by the amount of the payment.

8(1)If the payment area forms part of the area of the claim holding, the holding (in this paragraph referred to as " the parent holding ") shall be treated, as from the date of the scheme, as having been divided into two claim holdings, that is to say—

(a)a claim holding with an area consisting of that part of the area of the parent holding which constituted the payment area, and with a value equal to that fraction of the value of the parent holding which attached to that part of the area of the parent holding, and

(b)a claim holding with an area consisting of the residue of the area of the parent holding, and with a value equal to that fraction of the value of the parent holding which attached to the residue of the area of the parent holding.

(2)Where the preceding sub-paragraph applies, the last preceding paragraph shall have effect in relation to the claim holding referred to in head (a) of the preceding sub-paragraph as if it were the parent holding.

9If the payment area includes the area of the claim holding together with other land, paragraph 7 of this Schedule shall apply as if—

(a)the payment area had been identical with the area of the claim holding, but

(b)the amount of the payment had been so much of the actual amount thereof as might reasonably be expected to have been attributed to the area of the claim holding if, under the scheme, the authority determining the amount of the payment had been required (in accordance with the same principles as applied to the determination of that amount) to apportion it between the area of the claim holding and the rest of the payment area.

10If the payment area includes part of the area of the claim holding together with other land not comprised in the area of the claim holding—

(a)paragraph 8 of this Schedule shall apply as if the part of the payment area comprised in the area of the claim holding had been the whole of the payment area, and

(b)the last preceding paragraph shall apply as if the part of the area of the claim holding comprised in the payment area had been the whole of the area of the claim holding.

Part III

Adjustment in cases of partial disposition of claim holdings

11The provisions of this Part of this Schedule shall have effect where, by virtue of a disposition of part of the benefit of an established claim, not being a mortgage made otherwise than by way of assignment (in this Part of this Schedule referred to as " the relevant disposition "), different persons became entitled to different parts of the benefit of that established claim.

12As from the date of the relevant disposition, each of those different parts shall be treated as having constituted a separate claim holding.

13The area and value of any such separate claim holding at any time after the relevant disposition shall be taken to have been such as may, in the requisite manner, be or have been determined to be just and appropriate in all the circumstances.

14In the last preceding paragraph the reference to determination in the requisite manner of the area and value of a claim holding is a reference to the determination thereof on the occasion of an apportionment affecting that holding which fell or falls to be made for any of the purposes of the Act of 1954, of Part VI of this Act or of this Schedule, being a determination made—

(a)by the authority making that apportionment, or

(b)where, under the Act of 1954 or Part VI of this Act, that authority's findings were or are referred to the Lands Tribunal, by that Tribunal, having regard in particular to the principles mentioned in the next following paragraph.

15(1)The said principles are those set out in the following provisions of this paragraph.

(2)The aggregate of the values of all claim holdings representing parts of the benefit of the same established claim must not exceed the amount of the established claim.

(3)Subject to the last preceding sub-paragraph, where a claim holding representing part only of the benefit of an established claim was pledged to the Central Land Board, otherwise than as mentioned in paragraph 2 of this Schedule, and by virtue of Part I of this Schedule the value of that claim holding is deemed to have been reduced by reference to an amount due by way of development charge, the value of that holding at the time of the pledge is not to be taken to have been less than the amount credited for the purposes of the pledge by reference to the holding.

(4)In the case of the claim holding representing the part of the benefit of an established claim which was the subject of the relevant disposition, if it was not a claim holding to which sub-paragraph (5) of this paragraph applies.—

(a)the area of that claim holding is to be taken to be the claim area of that established claim, less the area of any claim holding to which the said sub-paragraph (5) applies which represents part of the benefit of the same established claim, and

(b)the payment (whatever its amount) became or becomes payable under Case D (that is to say, by virtue of section eight of the Act of 1954, which related to cases where a claim holding had been disposed of for valuable consideration), the claim holding shall be deemed to have been extinguished ; and if the principal amount of the payment (not being a payment under Case D) was or is less than the value of the claim holding, the value of that holding shall be deemed to have been reduced by the principal amount of the payment.

19The last preceding paragraph shall apply where two or more payments under Part I of the Act of 1954 were or are payable in respect of the same claim holding, with the substitution, for references to the principal amount of the payment, of references to the aggregate of the principal amounts of the payments.

(b)any reduction of the principal amount of a payment by virtue of that subsection shall be disregarded ; and

(c)where in accordance with subsection (3) of section fourteen or subsection (6) of section fifty-eight of the Act of 1954 (which provided for cases of failure to apply for a payment within the appropriate period) an amount was determined as being the principal amount of a payment to which a person would have been entitled as mentioned in those subsections respectively, that payment shall be treated as if it had become due and as if the principal amount thereof had been the amount so determined.

(b)on the assumption that (apart from the provisions of Part III of this Act or the provisions of the Act of 1947, as the case may be) the development could at that time lawfully be carried out, and shall be taken to be the difference between the value which in those circumstances the land would have had at that time if planning permission for that development had been granted unconditionally immediately before that time and the value which in those circumstances the land would have had at that time if planning permission for that development had been applied for and refused immediately before that time, and it could be assumed that planning permission for that development, and any other new development of that land, would toe refused on any subsequent application.

3If the development involved the clearing of any land, the reference in sub-paragraph (a) of the last preceding paragraph to the state of the land immediately before the development shall be construed as a reference to the state of the land immediately after the clearing thereof but before the carrying out of any othei operations.
