(b)the Lands Tribunal is satisfied that a claimant has failed to deliver to the acquiring authority, in time to enable them to make a proper offer, a notice in writing of the amount claimed by him, containing the particulars mentioned in subsection (2) of this section;

the Lands Tribunal shall, unless for special reasons it thinks proper not to do so, order the claimant to bear his own expenses and to pay the expenses of the acquiring authority so far as they were incurred after the offer was made or, as the case may be, after the time when in the opinion of the Lands Tribunal the notice should have been delivered.

(3)Where a claimant has delivered such a notice as is mentioned in subsection (1)(b) of this section and has made an unconditional offer in writing to accept any sum as compensation, then, if the sum awarded to him by the Lands Tribunal is equal to or exceeds that sum, the Lands Tribunal shall, unless for special reasons it thinks proper not to do so, order the acquiring authority to bear their own expenses and pay the expenses of the claimant so far as they were incurred after his offer was made.

(4)The Lands Tribunal may in any case disallow the cost of counsel.

General provisionsS

12 Rules for assessing compensation. S

Compensation in respect of any compulsory acquisition shall be assessed in accordance with the following rules:—

(1)No allowance shall be made on account of the acquisition being compulsory:

(2)The value of land shall, subject as hereinafter provided, be taken to be the amount which the land if sold in the open market by a willing seller might be expected to realise:

(3)The special suitability or adaptability of the land for any purpose shall not be taken into account if that purpose is a purpose to which it could be applied only in pursuance of statutory powers, or for which there is no market apart from F5 . . .the special needs of a particular purchaser or the requirements of any authority possessing compulsory purchase powers:

(4)Where the value of the land is increased by reason of the use thereof or of any premises thereon in a manner which could be restrained by any court, or is contrary to law, or is detrimental to the health of the occupants of the premises or to the public health, the amount of that increase shall not be taken into account:

(5)Where land is, and but for the compulsory acquisition would continue to be, devoted to a purpose of such a nature that there is no general demand or market for land for that purpose, the compensation may, if the official arbiter is satisfied that reinstatement in some other place is bona fide intended, be assessed on the basis of the reasonable cost of equivalent reinstatement:

(6)The provisions of rule (2) shall not affect the assessment of compensation for disturbance or any other matter not directly based on the value of land:

and the following provisions of this Part of this Act shall have effect with respect to the assessment.

15 Subsequent acquisition of adjacent land and acquisition governed by enactment corresponding to s. 14.S

(1)Where, for the purpose of assessing compensation in respect of a compulsory acquisition of an interest in land, an increase in the value of an interest in other land has, in any of the circumstances mentioned in the first column [F11of Part I] of Schedule 1 to this Act, been taken into account by virtue of section 14 of this Act or any corresponding enactment, then, in connection with any subsequent acquisition to which this subsection applies, that increase shall not be left out of account by virtue of section 13 of this Act, or taken into account by virtue of section 14 of this Act or any corresponding enactment, in so far as it was taken into account in connection with the previous acquisition.

(2)Where, in connection with a compulsory acquisition of an interest in land, a diminution in the value of an interest in other land has, in any of the circumstances mentioned in the first column [F11of Part I] of the said Schedule 1, been taken into account in assessing compensation for injurious affection, then, in connection with any subsequent acquisition to which this subsection applies, that diminution shall not be left out of account by virtue of section 13 of this Act in so far as it was taken into account in connection with the previous acquisition.

(3)Subsections (1) and (2) of this section apply to any subsequent acquisition where either—

(a)the interest acquired by the subsequent acquisition is the same as the interest previously taken into account (whether the acquisition extends to the whole of the land in which that interest previously subsisted or only to part of that land), or

(4)Where, in connection with a sale of an interest in land by agreement, the circumstances were such that, if it had been a compulsory acquisition, an increase or diminution of value would have fallen to be taken into account as mentioned in subsection (1) or subsection (2) of this section, the preceding provisions of this section shall apply, with the necessary modifications, as if that sale had been a compulsory acquisition and that increase or diminution of value had been taken into account accordingly.

(6)Where any such local enactment as is mentioned in subsection (5) of this section includes a provision restricting the assessment of the increase in value thereunder by reference to existing use (that is to say, by providing, in whatever terms, that the increase in value shall be assessed on the assumption that planning permission in respect of the contiguous or adjacent land in question would be granted for development of any class specified in [F12Schedule 11 to the Town and Country Planning (Scotland) Act 1997] but would not be granted for any other development thereof), the enactment shall have effect as if it did not include that provision.

regard shall be had to any contrary opinion expressed in relation to that land in any certificate issued under Part IV of this Act.]

(7)The determinations referred to in subsection (5) of this section are—

(a)a determination, for the purpose of assessing compensation in respect of any compulsory acquisition, whether planning permission might reasonably have been expected to be granted for any development if no part of the relevant land were proposed to be acquired by any authority possessing compulsory purchase powers, and

24 Special assumptions in respect of certain land comprised in development plans.S

(1)If the relevant land or any part thereof (not being land subject to comprehensive development) consists or forms part of a site defined in the current development plan as the site of proposed development of a description specified in relation thereto in the plan, it shall be assumed that planning permission would be granted for that development.

(2)If the relevant land or any part thereof (not being land subject to comprehensive development) consists or forms part of an area shown in the current development plan as an area allocated primarily for a use specified in the plan in relation to that area, it shall be assumed that planning permission would be granted, in respect of the relevant land or part thereof, as the case may be, for any development which—

(a)is development for the purposes of that use of the relevant land or that part thereof, and

(b)is development for which planning permission might reasonably have been expected to be granted in respect of the relevant land or that part thereof, as the case may be.

(3)If the relevant land or any part thereof (not being land subject to comprehensive development) consists or forms part of an area shown in the current development plan as an area allocated primarily for a range of two or more uses specified in the plan in relation to the whole of that area, it shall be assumed that planning permission would be granted, in respect of the relevant land or that part thereof, as the case may be, for any development which—

(a)is development for the purposes of a use of the relevant land or that part thereof, being a use falling within that range of uses, and

(b)is development for which planning permission might reasonably have been expected to be granted in respect of the relevant land or that part thereof, as the case may be.

(4)If the relevant land or any part thereof is land subject to comprehensive development, it shall be assumed that planning permission would be granted, in respect of the relevant land or that part thereof, as the case may be, for any development for the purposes of a use of the relevant land or that part thereof falling within the planned range of uses (whether it is the use which, in accordance with the particulars and proposals comprised in the current development plan in relation to the area in question, is indicated in the plan as the proposed use of the relevant land or that part thereof, or is any other use falling within the planned range of uses) being development for which, in the circumstances specified in the next following subsection, planning permission might reasonably have been expected to be granted in respect of the relevant land or that part thereof, as the case may be.

(5)The circumstances referred to in the last preceding subsection are those which would have existed if—

(a)the area in question had not been defined in the current development plan as an area of comprehensive development, and no particulars or proposals relating to any land in that area had been comprised in the plan, and

(b)in a case where, on the date of service of the notice to treat, land in that area has already been developed in the course of the development or redevelopment of the area in accordance with the plan, no land in that area had been so developed on or before that date;

and in that subsection “the planned range of uses” means the range of uses which, in accordance with the particulars and proposals comprised in the current development plan in relation to the area in question, are indicated in the plan as proposed uses of land in that area.

(6)Where in accordance with any of the preceding subsections it is to be assumed that planning permission would be granted as therein mentioned—

(a)the assumption shall be that planning permission would be so granted subject to such conditions (if any) as, in the circumstances mentioned in the subsection in question, might reasonably be expected to be imposed by the authority granting the permission, and

(b)if, in accordance with any map or statement comprised in the current development plan, it is indicated that any such planning permission would be granted only at a future time, then (without prejudice to the preceding paragraph) the assumption shall be that the planning permission in question would be granted at the time when, in accordance with the indications in the plan, that permission might reasonably be expected to be granted.

(7)Any reference in this section to development for which planning permission might reasonably have been expected to be granted is a reference to development for which planning permission might reasonably have been expected to be granted if no part of the relevant land were proposed to be acquired by any authority possessing compulsory purchase powers.

(8)In this section “land subject to comprehensive development” means land which consists or forms part of an area defined in the current development plan as an area of comprehensive development.

(a)with the consent in writing of the other of those parties, or

(b)with the leave of the Lands Tribunal for Scotland.

(3)An application for a certificate under this section—

(b)shall state the applicant’s grounds for holding that opinion; and

(c)shall be accompanied by a statement specifying the date on which a copy of the application has been or will be served on the other party directly concerned.

(4)Where an application is made to the planning authority for a certificate under this section in respect of an interest in land, the planning authority shall, not earlier than twenty-one days after the date specified in the statement mentioned in subsection (3)(c) of this section, issue to the applicant a certificate stating that, in the opinion of the planning authority in respect of the land in question, either—

[F38(a)planning permission would have been granted for development of one or more classes specified in the certificate (whether specified in the application or not) and for any development for which the land is to be acquired, but would not have been granted for any other development; or

(b)planning permission would have been granted for any development for which the land is to be acquired, but would not have been granted for any other development,

and for the purposes of this subsection development is development for which the land is to be acquired if the land is to be acquired for purposes which involve the carrying out of proposals of the acquiring authority for that development.]

(7)In determining, for the purposes of the issue of a certificate under this section, whether planning permission for any particular class of development would have been granted in respect of any land, the planning authority shall not treat development of that class as development for which planning permission would have been refused by reason only that it would have involved development of the land in question (or of that land together with other land) otherwise than in accordance with the provisions of the development plan relating thereto.

ProcedureS

2(1)The local authority may make and submit to the Secretary of State an order, in such form as may be prescribed by regulations made under section 330 of the Housing (Scotland) Act 1987, declaring that the house does not meet the tolerable standard and if—S

(a)that order is confirmed by the Secretary of State, either before or concurrently with the confirmation of a compulsory purchase order for the acquisition of the land, or

(b)in a case where the acquisition is in pursuance of a notice to treat deemed to have been served in consequence of the service of a notice under [F87section 90 of the Town and Country Planning (Scotland) Act 1997] or the provisions of that section as applied by or under any other enactment or in consequence of the service of a notice under section 11 of the New Towns (Scotland) Act 1968 or under [F88section 101 of the Town and Country Planning (Scotland) Act 1997], the order is made before the date on which the notice to treat is deemed to have been served and is subsequently confirmed by the Secretary of State,

section 305 and paragraph 12(2) and (3) of Schedule 8 to the Housing (Scotland) Act 1987 (which relate respectively to payments in respect of certain well-maintained houses under Part XV and to compensation for compulsory acquisition under Part IV of the Housing (Scotland) Act 1987) shall apply as if the house had been purchased under Part IV as not meeting the tolerable standard, and as if any reference in that section and paragraph to the local authority were a reference to the acquiring authority.

(2)Before submitting to the Secretary of State an order under this paragraph, the local authority by whom the order was made shall serve on every owner, and (so far as it is reasonably practicable to ascertain such persons) on F89... the holder of every heritable security over, the land or any part thereof, a notice in such form as may be prescribed as mentioned in the last preceding sub-paragraph, stating the effect of the order and that it is about to be submitted to the Secretary of State for confirmation, and specifying the time within which, and the manner in which, objection thereto can be made.

(3)If no objection is duly made by any of the persons on whom notices are required to be served, or if all objections so made are withdrawn, the Secretary of State may, if he thinks fit, confirm the order; but in any other case he shall, before confirming the order, consider any objection not withdrawn, and shall, if either the person by whom the objection was made or the local authority so desires, afford to that person and the authority an opportunity of appearing before and being heard by a person appointed by the Secretary of State for the purpose.

(4)Section 86 of the Housing (Scotland) Act 1987 shall have effect in determining for the purposes of this paragraph whether a house meets the tolerable standard as it has effect in so determining for the purposes of that Act.

(5)In this paragraph “appropriate local authority” means a local authority who, in relation to the area in which the land in question is situated, are a local authority for the purposes of the provisions of Part IV of the Housing (Scotland) Act 1987 relating to housing action areas; and “owner,” in relation to any land, includes any person who under the Lands Clauses Acts would be enabled to sell and convey the land to the promoters of an undertaking and includes also a lessee under a lease the unexpired period of which exceeds three years.

(a)the relevant land consists of or includes the whole or part of a house (in this paragraph referred to as ’’the relevant house’’) and, on the date of the making of the compulsory purchase order in pursuance of which the acquisition is effected, the person then entitled to the relevant interest was, in right of that interest, in occupation of the relevant house or part thereof as a private dwelling, and

(b)that person either continues, on the date of service of the notice to treat, to be entitled to the relevant interest, or, if he has died before that date, continued to be entitled to that interest immediately before his death,

the following provisions of this paragraph shall apply in relation to the acquisition; and in those provisions ’’the dwelling’’ means so much of the relevant house as the said person occupied as aforesaid.

(2)Subject to the next following sub-paragraph, the amount of the compensation payable in respect of the acquisition of the relevant interest shall not in any event be less than the gross annual value of the dwelling.

(3)Where a payment falls to be made under section 304 or 305 of the Housing (Scotland) Act 1987 to the person entitled to the relevant interest, and that payment is attributable to the relevant house, any reference in the last preceding sub-paragraph to the amount of the compensation payable in respect of the acquisition of the relevant interest shall be construed as a reference to the aggregate of that amount and of the amount of the payment.

(4)For the purposes of this paragraph the gross annual value of the dwelling shall be determined as follows-

(a)if the dwelling constitutes the whole of the relevant house, the gross annual value of the dwelling shall be taken to be the value which, on the date of service of the notice to treat, is shown in the valuation roll then in force as the gross annual value of that house for rating purposes;

(b)if the dwelling is only part of the relevant house, an apportionment shall be made of the gross annual value of the relevant house for rating purposes, as shown in the valuation roll in force on the date of service of the notice to treat, and the gross annual value of the dwelling shall be taken to be the amount which, on such an apportionment, is properly attributable to the dwelling.

(5)Any reference in this paragraph to the compensation payable in respect of the acquisition of the relevant interest shall be construed as excluding so much (if any) of that compensation as is attributable to disturbance or to severance or injurious affection.

(6)Nothing in this paragraph shall affect the amount which is to be taken for the purposes of section 20 of this Act (which relates to the consideration payable for the discharge of land from feu-duty and incumbrances) as the amount of the compensation payable in respect of the acquisition of the relevant interest.

(7)In the application of this paragraph to any lands and heritages whose net annual value is ascertained under subsection (8) of section 6 of the Valuation and Rating (Scotland) Act 1956 (and for which there is therefore no gross annual value shown in the valuation roll)-

(a)in sub-paragraph (2) above, for the word ’gross’ there shall be substituted the words ’1.25 times the net’; and

(b)in sub-paragraph (4) above, for the word ’gross’, wherever it occurs, there shall be substituted the word ’net’.
