112Appropriation of land held for planning purposes

(1)Where any land has been acquired or appropriated by a local planning authority for planning purposes and is for the time being held by the authority for the purposes for which it was so acquired or appropriated, the authority (subject to the following provisions of this section) may appropriate the land for any purpose for which they are or may be authorised in any capacity to acquire land by virtue of or under any enactment not contained in this Part of this Act.

(2)The consent of the Secretary of State shall be requisite to any appropriation under this section by an authority which is not an authority to whom Part II of the Act of 1959 applies; and any such consent may be given either in respect of a particular appropriation or in respect of appropriations of any class, and may be given either subject to or free from any conditions or limitations.

(4)In relation to any appropriation under this section subsections (5) and (6) of section 111 of this Act shall have effect as they have effect in relation to appropriations under those sections respectively.

(5)In relation to any such land as is mentioned in subsection (1) of this section, this section shall have effect to the exclusion of the provisions of any enactment, other than this Act, by virtue of or under which the local planning authority are or may be authorised to appropriate land held by them.
