This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

53Incorporation into priority neighbourhoods of general improvement areas, housing action areas, or parts thereof

(1)If a local authority propose, by a resolution under section 52 above, to declare as a priority neighbourhood an area which consists of or includes land which, immediately prior to the declaration, is comprised—

(a)in a housing action area declared under section 36 above, or

(b)in a general improvement area declared under Part II of the Housing Act 1969,

they shall indicate on the map referred to in section 52 above the land which is so comprised (in this section referred to as " the relevant land ").

(2)Subject to the following provisions of this section, with effect from the date on which such a resolution as is referred to in subsection (1) above is passed, the relevant land shall be deemed (according to its status) either—

(a)to have ceased to be a housing action area by virtue of a resolution passed on that date under section 39(3) above or, as the case may be, to have been excluded from the housing action area by virtue of a resolution passed on that date under section 40(1) above; or

(b)to have ceased to be a general improvement area or, as the case may be, to have been excluded from the general improvement area by virtue of a resolution under section 30(1) of the Housing Act 1969 passed on that date and approved by the Secretary of State.

(3)If the Secretary of State notifies the local authority concerned under section 37 above, as that section applies in relation to priority neighbourhoods by virtue of section 52(7) above, that the area declared by them to be a priority neighbourhood is no longer to be such an area, subsection (2) above shall be treated as never having applied in relation to the relevant land.

(4)If the Secretary of State notifies the local authority concerned under section 37 above, as that section applies in relation to priority neighbourhoods by virtue of section 52(7) above, that any land which—

(a)is within the area declared by the authority to be a priority neighbourhood, and

(b)consists of or includes any of the relevant land,

is to be excluded from the priority neighbourhood, subsection (2) above shall be treated as never having applied in relation to so much of the relevant land as is comprised in the land so excluded.
