29B(1)If a local authority propose, by a preliminary resolution under section 28(1) of this Act, to declare their intention that an area should become a general improvement area and that area consists of or includes land which, immediately prior to the declaration, is comprised in a priority neighbourhood declared under Part VI of the Housing Act 1974, they shall indicate on the map referred to in the said section 28(1) the land which is so comprised (in this section referred to as "priority land").
