This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).
(1)On the determination of an appeal under section 39, the Secretary of State shall give directions for giving effect to the determination, including where appropriate directions for quashing the listed building enforcement notice or for varying its terms.
(2)On such an appeal if the Secretary of State is satisfied that to do so will not cause injustice to the appellant or to the local planning authority, he may—
(a)correct any informality, defect or error in the listed building enforcement notice, or
(b)give directions for varying its terms.
(3)The Secretary of State—
(a)may dismiss such an appeal if the appellant fails to comply with section 39(4) within the prescribed time; and
(b)may allow such an appeal and quash the listed building enforcement notice if the local planning authority fail to comply within the prescribed period with any requirement imposed by regulations made by virtue of section 40(1)(a),(b) or (d).
(4)If the Secretary of State proposes to dismiss an appeal under paragraph (a) of subsection (3) or to allow an appeal and quash the listed building enforcement notice under paragraph (b) of that subsection he need not comply with section 40(2).
(5)Where it would otherwise be a ground for determining an appeal in favour of the appellant that a person required to be served with a copy of the listed building enforcement notice was not served, the Secretary of State may disregard that fact if neither the appellant nor that person has been substantially prejudiced by the failure to serve him.
(6)On the determination of an appeal the Secretary of State may—
(a)grant listed building consent for the works to which the listed building enforcement notice relates or for part only of those works;
(b)discharge any condition or limitation subject to which listed building consent was granted and substitute any other condition, whether more or less onerous;
(c)if he thinks fit, exercise his power under section 1 to amend any list compiled or approved under that section by removing from it the building to which the appeal relates.
(7)Any listed building consent granted by the Secretary of State under subsection (6) shall be treated as granted on an application for the same consent under section 10 and the Secretary of State’s decision in relation to the grant shall be final.
