Revised legislation carried on this site may not be fully up to date. Changes and effects are recorded by our editorial team in lists which can be found in the ‘Changes to Legislation’ area. Where those effects have yet to be applied to the text of the legislation by the editorial team they are also listed alongside the legislation in the affected provisions. Use the ‘more’ link to open the changes and effects relevant to the provision you are viewing.
This section lists the commencement orders yet to be applied to the whole Act. These effects are included in this view as they may be (but won’t necessarily be) relevant to the specific provision that you are viewing. Where applicable the commencement orders are listed under two headings, firstly those that bring some part of the Act you are viewing into force and secondly, those that bring into force legislation that affects some part of the legislation you are viewing. If you are viewing a prospective version or there is a prospective version available there may be commencement orders listed here that are relevant to the provision you are viewing.
Commencement Orders bringing legislation that affects this Act into force:

(a)every local planning [F1authority, [F2every local authority who are not a local planning authority and every] river authority within][F1authority and every local authority who are not a local planning authority, being, in either case, an authority within] whose area any part of the additional land is situated, and
(b)all statutory water undertakers within whose [F3limits of supply][F3area] any part of the additional land lies, or who are holders of a statutory licence to abstract water in an area which includes any part of the additional land, and
[F4(bb)on the National Rivers Authority, and]

(d)every owner, lessee and occupier (except tenants for a month or any period of less than a month) of any part of the additional land,
have been served with a notice of the proposal giving particulars of the additional land and stating that objections by any of those persons may be made to the Minister within twenty-eight days of the date on which the notice is served.
(2)Subject to this paragraph, if an objection to the modification of the order is duly made by any person on whom the notice is to be served under this paragraph and the objection has not been withdrawn the Minister shall not make the order unless he has caused a public local inquiry to be held.
(3)The Minister may disregard an objection for the purposes of this paragraph—
(a)if, in accordance with a request in writing from the objector disclaiming the right to a public local inquiry, the Minister has afforded the objector an opportunity of appearing before and being heard by a person appointed by the Minister for the purpose, or
(b)if the Minister is satisfied that at a public local inquiry held as respects the application for the order the question of the inclusion of the relevant part of the additional land was in issue and that there was sufficient opportunity for making representations on that question, or
(c)if the objection is, in the opinion of the Minister, trivial or frivolous or can be disposed of under the next following sub-paragraph.
(4)The Minister may require an objector to state in writing the grounds of his objection, and may disregard the objection for the purposes of this paragraph if he is satisfied that the objection relates exclusively to matters which can be dealt with by the Lands Tribunal on a claim for compensation.
(5)If any objector avails himself of the opportunity of being heard by a person appointed by the Minister for the purpose, the Minister shall afford to [F5the applicant]for the order, and to any other person to whom it appears to the Minister expedient to afford it, an opportunity of being heard on the same occasion.
(6)If an objection was duly made by a person on whom a notice is to be served under paragraph (a) or paragraph (b) [F6or paragraph (bb)] or paragraph (c) of sub-paragraph (1) of this paragraph and the objection has not been withdrawn, the Minister shall, if the order is made so as to include additional land to which the objection relates, serve notice on that person of the making of the order, and the order shall be framed so as not to take effect earlier than twenty-eight days after the date of service of the notice.
(7)If within the said twenty-eight days any of the persons on whom the notice is to be served under the last foregoing sub-paragraph gives notice in writing to the Minister objecting to the order, and the objection is not withdrawn, the order shall be subject to special parliamentary procedure.
