40(1)Where work begun before the passing of this Act, or between the passing of this Act and the appointed day, constitutes development for which planning permission is, by virtue of paragraph 27 of this Schedule, deemed to be granted on that day, then, notwithstanding that the work was so begun it shall, for the purposes of paragraph 21(7) of Schedule 4 to the Land Commission Act 1967 and of paragraph 7(2) of Schedule 6 to that Act be treated as if planning permission for its carrying out had been granted before it was begun.

(2)Where work falling within the foregoing sub-paragraph constitutes the carrying out of a project of material development of relevant land, other than one which is relevant for the purposes of paragraph 21 of Schedule 4 to the Land Commission Act 1967, and is uncompleted at the date which, for the purposes of that paragraph, is the relevant date in relation to the carrying out of a project of material development of that land which is relevant for those purposes, then, notwithstanding anything in sub-paragraph (6) of that paragraph, in calculating the rent referred to in paragraph 16 of that Schedule, account shall be taken of the planning permission deemed to have been granted in respect of the development constituted by the work in so far as it authorises the carrying out of the first-mentioned project.

(3)Where work falling within sub-paragraph (1) above constitutes a project of material development of relevant land, then, notwithstanding anything in sub-paragraph (1) of paragraph 7 of Schedule 6 to the Land Commission Act 1967 (but subject to paragraph 8 of that Schedule where that paragraph applies), in calculating any such value as is referred to in paragraph 6 of that Schedule account shall, if the project was begun before, but remained uncompleted at, the relevant date, be taken of the planning permission deemed to have been granted in respect of the development constituted by the work in so far as it relates to the land comprised in that project; and for that purpose sub-paragraph (3) of paragraph 7 shall apply as it applies where account of planning permission is taken by virtue of sub-paragraph (2) thereof.

(4)In this paragraph, " project of material development" has the same meaning as it has for the purposes of Part III of the Land Commission Act 1967.
