Powers and duties of appointed personE+W

[F1(aa)in relation to an appeal under section 26K, as the Secretary of State has under section 26K(4) to (6);] and

(2)Sections 22(2) and 40(2) shall not apply to an appeal which falls to be determined by an appointed person, but before it is determined the Secretary of State shall ask the appellant and the local planning authority whether they wish to appear before and be heard by the appointed person.

(3)If both the parties express a wish not to appear and be heard the appeal may be determined without their being heard.

(4)If either of the parties expresses a wish to appear and be heard, the appointed person shall give them both an opportunity of doing so.

(6)Except as provided by sections 62 to 65, the validity of that decision shall not be questioned in any proceedings whatsoever.

(7)It shall not be a ground of application to the High Court under section 63, or of appeal to the High Court under section 65, that an appeal ought to have been determined by the Secretary of State and not by an appointed person, unless the appellant or the local planning authority challenge the appointed person’s power to determine the appeal before his decision on the appeal is given.

(8)Where in any enactment (including this Act) there is a reference to the Secretary of State in a context relating or capable of relating—

(a)to an appeal under section 20 [F4, 26K] or 39, or
