(i)cease to authorise the purchase of the right to which the notice relates, and

(ii)be deemed to authorise the purchase of that person’s interest in the whole of the relevant land including, where the land consists of a park or garden belonging to a house, the house,

and

(b)the notice to treat shall be deemed to have been served in respect of that interest on such date as the Lands Tribunal direct.

(1C)Any question as to the extent of the land in which the compulsory purchase order is deemed to authorise the purchase of an interest by virtue of subsection (1B)(a)(ii) of this section shall be determined by the Lands Tribunal.

(1D)Where the Lands Tribunal determine that the person on whom a notice to treat has been served has satisfied them as mentioned in subsection (1)(c) of this section, the acquiring authority may withdraw the notice at any time within the period of six weeks beginning with the date of the determination.

(1E)Subsection (1D) of this section is without prejudice to any other power of the acquiring authority to withdraw the notice to treat.

(4)The following provisions of that Act (which state the effect of a deed poll executed in various circumstances where there is no conveyance by persons with interests in the land) namely—

  • section 9(4) (failure of owners to convey),

  • paragraph 10(3) of Schedule 1 (owners under incapacity),

  • paragraph 2(3) of Schedule 2 (absent and untraced owners), and

  • paragraphs 2(3) and 7(2) of Schedule 4 (common land),

shall be so modified as to secure that, as against persons with interests in the land which are expressed to be overridden by the deed, the right which is to be purchased compulsorily is vested absolutely in the acquiring authority.

(5)Section 11 of that Act (powers of entry) shall be so modified as to secure that, as from the date on which the acquiring authority have served notice to treat in respect of any right, they have power, exercisable in the like circumstances and subject to the like conditions, to enter for the purpose of exercising that right (which shall be deemed for this purpose to have been created on the date of service of the notice); and sections 12 (penalty for unauthorised entry) and 13 (entry on sheriff’s warrant in the event of obstruction) of that Act shall be modified correspondingly.

(6)Section 20 of that Act (compensation for short term tenants) shall apply with the modifications necessary to secure that persons with such interests in land as are mentioned in that section are compensated in a manner corresponding to that in which they would be compensated on a compulsory acquisition of the land but taking into account only the extent (if any) of such interference with such interests as is actually caused, or likely to be caused, by the exercise of the right in question.

(7)Section 22 of that Act (protection of acquiring authority’s possession of land where interest accidentally omitted from purchase) shall be so modified as to enable the acquiring authority, in circumstances corresponding to those referred to in that section, to continue to be entitled to exercise the right acquired, subject to compliance with that section as respects compensation.

(8)References in that Act to land are, in appropriate contexts, to be read (according to the requirements of the particular context) as referring to, or as including references to—

(a)the right acquired or to be acquired, or

(b)the land over which the right is, or is to be, exercisable.

(9)In the [1973 c. 26.] Land Compensation Act 1973, for section 44 there shall be substituted—

Compensation for injurious affection

(1)Where a right over land is purchased from any person for the purpose of works which are to be situated partly on that land and partly elsewhere, compensation for injurious affection of land retained by that person shall be assessed by reference to the whole of the works and not only the part situated on the land over which the right is exercisable.

(2)In this section “compensation for injurious affection” means compensation for injurious affection under section 7 or 20 of the [1965 c. 56.] Compulsory Purchase Act 1965 as applied by paragraph 8(2) of Schedule 4 to the Channel Tunnel Rail Link Act 1996.

(10)For section 58 of that Act there shall be substituted—

Determination of material detriment where right over part of house etc. proposed for compulsory acquisition.

In determining under section 8(1)(c) of the Compulsory Purchase Act 1965 as applied by paragraph 8(2) of Schedule 4 to the Channel Tunnel Rail Link Act 1996 whether—

(a)a right over part of a house, building or manufactory can be taken without material detriment to the house, building or manufactory, or

(b)a right over part of a park or garden belonging to a house can be taken without seriously affecting the amenity or convenience of the house,

the Lands Tribunal shall take into account not only the effect of the right on the whole of the house, building or manufactory or of the house and the park or garden but also the use to be made of the rights proposed to be acquired and, in a case where the right is proposed to be acquired for works or other purposes extending to other land, the effect of the whole of the works and the use to be made of the other land.

10(1)The Secretary of State may by order provide, in relation to land to which this paragraph applies, that section 4(1) above, so far as relating to acquisition by virtue of paragraph 8(1) above, shall be treated as also authorising acquisition by such person as may be specified in the order.

(2)This paragraph applies to land within the limits of deviation for the scheduled works or within the limits of land to be acquired or used which is or will be required for use in relocating any apparatus which it is expedient to divert or replace in consequence of the carrying out of any of the works authorised by this Part of this Act.

(3)The power to make an order under sub-paragraph (1) above includes power to make an order varying or revoking any order previously made under that provision.

Acquisition of part only of certain properties

11(1)Where—

(a)a notice to treat under Part I of the Compulsory Purchase Act 1965, as applied to the acquisition of land under section 4(1) above, is served in respect of land forming part only of a house, building or factory or part only of land consisting of a house with a park or garden, and

(b)a copy of this paragraph is served with the notice to treat,

the following provisions of this paragraph, with paragraph 12 below, shall apply instead of section 8(1) of the Compulsory Purchase Act 1965.

(2)The person on whom the notice to treat is served (“the owner”) may within the period of 21 days beginning with the day on which the notice to treat is served on him, serve on the Secretary of State a counter-notice objecting to the sale of the part (“the land subject to the notice to treat”) and stating that he is willing and able to sell the whole (“the land subject to the counter-notice”).

(3)If no counter-notice is served under sub-paragraph (2) above, the owner shall be required to sell the land subject to the notice to treat.

(4)If a counter-notice is served under sub-paragraph (2) above and the Secretary of State agrees to take the land subject to the counter-notice, the notice to treat shall be deemed to be a notice to treat in addition for the remainder of the land subject to the counter-notice.

(5)If a counter-notice is served under sub-paragraph (2) above and the Secretary of State does not agree to take the land subject to the counter-notice, the question as to what land the owner is to be required to sell shall be referred to the Lands Tribunal.

(6)If, on a reference under sub-paragraph (5) above, the Lands Tribunal determine that the land subject to the notice to treat can be taken—

(a)without material detriment to the remainder of the land subject to the counter-notice, and

(b)where the land subject to the notice to treat consists of or includes garden only land, without seriously affecting the amenity and convenience of the relevant house,

the owner shall be required to sell the land subject to the notice to treat.

(7)If, on such a reference, the Lands Tribunal determine that only part of the land subject to the notice to treat can be taken as mentioned in sub-paragraph (6) above, the notice to treat shall, subject to sub-paragraph (8) below, be deemed to be a notice to treat for that part.

(8)Where the land subject to the notice to treat is not land which consists of or includes garden only land, sub-paragraph (7) above shall only have effect to deem the notice to treat to be a notice to treat for land which does consist of or include garden only land if the Lands Tribunal determine that that land can be taken without seriously affecting the amenity and convenience of the relevant house.

(9)If, on such a reference, the Lands Tribunal determine—

(a)that none of the land subject to the notice to treat can be taken without material detriment to the remainder of the land subject to the counter-notice, but

(b)that the material detriment is confined to part of the remainder of that land,

then, except where sub-paragraph (10) below applies, the notice to treat shall be deemed to be a notice to treat in addition for the land to which the material detriment is confined.

(10)If, in a case where the land subject to the notice to treat consists of or includes garden only land, the Lands Tribunal determine on such a reference that none of the land subject to the notice to treat can be taken without seriously affecting the amenity or convenience of the relevant house, the notice to treat shall be deemed to be a notice to treat in addition for the remainder of the land subject to the counter-notice.

(11)If, on such a reference, the Lands Tribunal determine—

(a)that none of the land subject to the notice to treat can be taken without material detriment to the remainder of the land subject to the counter-notice, and

(b)that the material detriment is not confined to part of the remainder of that land,

the notice to treat shall be deemed to be a notice to treat in addition for the remainder of the land subject to the counter-notice.

(12)For the purposes of this paragraph, the land subject to the notice to treat consists of or includes garden only land if it consists of the whole or part of a park or garden belonging to a house or if it includes the whole or part of such a park or garden but does not include the house (“the relevant house”) or any part of it.

12(1)Where under paragraph 11 above a notice to treat is deemed by virtue of a determination of the Lands Tribunal to be a notice to treat for less land or more land than that specified in the notice, the Secretary of State may, within the period of 6 weeks beginning with the day on which the determination is made, withdraw the notice.

(2)If the Secretary of State withdraws a notice to treat under sub-paragraph (1) above, he shall pay the person on whom the notice was served compensation for any loss or expense occasioned to that person by the giving and withdrawal of the notice, such compensation to be determined in case of dispute by the Lands Tribunal.

(3)Where under paragraph 11 above a person is required to sell part only of a house, building or factory or of land consisting of a house with a park or garden, the Secretary of State shall pay him compensation for any loss sustained by him due to the severance of that part in addition to the value of the interest acquired.

(4)A notice to treat shall have the effect which it is deemed to have under paragraph 11(4), (9), (10) or (11) above whether or not the additional land is, apart from that provision, land which the Secretary of State is authorised to acquire compulsorily under this Part of this Act.

Minerals

13(1)Parts II and III of Schedule 2 to the [1981 c. 67.] Acquisition of Land Act 1981 (exception of minerals from compulsory purchase and regulation of the working of mines or minerals underlying an authorised undertaking) shall have effect in relation to land to which section 4(1) above applies as if it were comprised in a compulsory purchase order providing for the incorporation with that order of those Parts of that Schedule.

(2)In their application by virtue of sub-paragraph (1) above, Parts II and III of Schedule 2 to the Acquisition of Land Act 1981 shall have effect with the following modifications—

(a)references to the acquiring authority, except the second reference in paragraph 6, shall be construed as references to the nominated undertaker, and

(b)references to the undertaking shall be construed as references to the undertaking which the nominated undertaker is authorised by this Part of this Act to carry on.

Power to require acquisition where time limit extended

14(1)If the Secretary of State makes an order under section 47(2) above, the following provisions shall have effect as from the coming into operation of that order.

(2)If an owner or lessee of any of the land in relation to which the order is made gives notice in writing to the Secretary of State that he desires his interest in such of that land as is specified in the notice to be acquired by the Secretary of State, the Secretary of State shall, within the period of 3 months immediately following receipt of the notice—

(a)enter into an agreement with him for the acquisition of his interest in the whole or part of the land specified in the notice,

(b)exercise the relevant powers of compulsory acquisition in respect of his interest in the whole or part of the land specified in the notice, or

(c)serve on him notice in writing of the Secretary of State’s intention not to proceed with the purchase of his interest in any of the land specified in the notice.

(3)Where—

(a)a person gives the Secretary of State notice under sub-paragraph (2) above, and

(b)the Secretary of State—

(i)fails to comply with the requirements of that sub-paragraph,

(ii)withdraws a notice to treat served in compliance with paragraph (b) of that sub-paragraph, or

(iii)serves on the owner notice in compliance with paragraph (c) of that sub-paragraph,

the relevant powers of compulsory acquisition shall cease to be exercisable in respect of that person’s interest in any of the land specified in the notice under sub-paragraph (2) above.

(4)Where—

(a)a person gives the Secretary of State notice under sub-paragraph (2) above, and

(b)the Secretary of State acquires in pursuance of paragraph (a) or (b) of that sub-paragraph that person’s interest in some, but not all, of the land specified in the notice,

the relevant powers of compulsory acquisition shall cease to be exercisable in respect of that person’s interest in the remainder of that land.

17The fact that any act or thing may have been done in accordance with plans approved by the highway authority shall not (if it was not attributable to the act, neglect or default of the highway authority or of any person in its employ or its contractors or agents) exonerate the nominated undertaker from any liability, or affect any claim for damages, under this Part of this Schedule or otherwise.

(a)give effect to all reasonable requirements of the nominated undertaker for ensuring the safety and efficient operation of those works and for securing any subsequent alterations or adaptations of the alternative apparatus which may be required to prevent interference with any proposed works of the nominated undertaker or the use of the same, and

(b)so far as it may be reasonable and practicable to do so in the circumstances of the case, give effect to the terms and conditions (if any) applicable to the apparatus for which the alternative apparatus is to be substituted and have regard to the undertakers' ability to fulfil their service obligations.

(3)If the facilities and rights to be afforded by the nominated undertaker or the Secretary of State in respect of any alternative apparatus, and the terms and conditions subject to which those facilities and rights are to be granted are, in the opinion of the arbitrator, more or less favourable on the whole to the undertakers than the facilities, rights, terms and conditions applying to the apparatus to be removed, the arbitrator shall make such provision for the payment of compensation to or by the nominated undertaker or the Secretary of State to or by the undertakers in respect thereof as appears to him to be reasonable having regard to all the circumstances of the case.

11(1)Not less than 28 days before commencing to construct any work authorised by Part I of this Act which is near to, or will or may affect, any apparatus the removal of which has not been required by the nominated undertaker under paragraph 6 above, the nominated undertaker shall submit to the undertakers a plan and description of the work and of any protective measures which the nominated undertaker proposes to take in respect of that apparatus, together with a specification of such measures where appropriate.

(2)The work shall be constructed only in accordance with the plan and description submitted as aforesaid and in accordance with such reasonable requirements as may be made by the undertakers for the alteration or otherwise for the protection of the apparatus or for securing access thereto, and the undertakers shall be entitled by their officer to watch and inspect the construction of the work.

(3)If the undertakers within 14 days after the submission to them of any such plan and description shall, in consequence of the works proposed by the nominated undertaker, reasonably require the removal of any apparatus and give written notice to the nominated undertaker of that requirement, this Part of this Schedule shall have effect as if the removal of such apparatus had been required by the nominated undertaker under paragraph 6 above.

(4)Nothing in sub-paragraphs (1) to (3) above shall preclude the nominated undertaker from submitting at any time, or from time to time, but in no case less than 28 days before commencing the construction of the work, a new plan and description thereof in lieu of the plan and description previously submitted, and thereupon the provisions of those sub-paragraphs shall apply to and in respect of the new plan and description.

(5)The nominated undertaker shall not be required to comply with sub-paragraphs (1) to (3) above in a case of emergency but in such a case it shall give notice to the undertakers as soon as reasonably practicable and a plan and description of those works as soon as reasonably practicable thereafter, and shall comply with those sub-paragraphs so far as reasonably practicable in the circumstances.

12If in consequence of the exercise of the powers of Part I of this Act the access to any apparatus is materially obstructed the nominated undertaker shall, so far as reasonably practicable, provide alternative means of access to such apparatus which is no less convenient than the access enjoyed by the undertakers prior to the obstruction.

13Where, in consequence of Part I of this Act, any part of any highway in which any apparatus is situate ceases to be part of a highway, the undertakers may exercise the same rights of access to such apparatus as they enjoyed immediately before the passing of Part I of this Act, but nothing in this paragraph shall affect any right of the nominated undertaker or of the undertakers to require removal of that apparatus under this Part of this Schedule or the power of the nominated undertaker to construct works in accordance with paragraph 11 above.

14(1)Subject to the following provisions of this paragraph, the nominated undertaker shall repay to the undertakers the reasonable expenses incurred by the undertakers in, or in connection with—

(a)the removal and relaying or replacing, alteration or protection of any apparatus or the construction of any new apparatus under any provision of this Part of this Schedule,

(b)the cutting off of any apparatus from any other apparatus in consequence of the exercise by the nominated undertaker of any power under Part I of this Act, and

(c)any other work or thing rendered reasonably necessary in consequence of the exercise by the nominated undertaker of any such power.

(2)There shall be deducted from any sum payable under sub-paragraph (1) above the value of any apparatus removed under the provisions of this Part of this Schedule, that value being calculated after removal.

(3)If in pursuance of the provisions of this Part of this Schedule—

(a)alternative apparatus of better type, or greater capacity or of greater dimensions is placed in substitution for existing apparatus of worse type, of smaller capacity or of smaller dimensions, except where this has been solely due to using the nearest currently available type, or

(b)apparatus (whether existing apparatus or alternative apparatus) is placed at a depth greater than the depth at which the existing apparatus was situated,

and the placing of apparatus of that type or capacity or of those dimensions, or the placing of apparatus at that depth, as the case may be, is not agreed by the nominated undertaker or, in default of agreement, is not determined by arbitration to be necessary, then, if it involves cost in the construction of works under paragraph 6 above exceeding that which would have been involved if the apparatus placed had been of the existing type, capacity or dimensions, or at the existing depth, as the case may be, the amount which apart from this sub-paragraph would be payable to the undertakers by virtue of sub-paragraph (1) above shall be reduced by the amount of that excess.

(4)For the purposes of sub-paragraph (3) above—

(a)an extension of apparatus to a length greater than the length of existing apparatus shall not be treated as a placing of apparatus of greater dimensions than those of the existing apparatus except in a case where the apparatus as so extended serves a purpose (either additional to or instead of that served by the existing apparatus) which was not served by the existing apparatus, and

(b)where the provision of a joint in a cable is agreed, or is determined to be necessary, the consequential provision of a jointing chamber or of a manhole shall be treated as if it also had been agreed or had been so determined.

(5)An amount which apart from this sub-paragraph would be payable to the undertakers in respect of works by virtue of this paragraph shall, if the works include the placing of apparatus provided in substitution for apparatus placed more than 7½ years earlier so as to confer on the undertakers any financial benefit by deferment of the time for renewal of the apparatus or of the system of which it forms part in the ordinary course, be reduced by the amount which represents that benefit.

(6)In any case where work is carried out by the nominated undertaker pursuant to paragraph 9 above and, if such work had been carried out by the undertakers, the repayment made to the undertakers under this paragraph would fall to be reduced pursuant to sub-paragraphs (3) to (5) above, the undertakers shall pay to the nominated undertaker such sum as represents the amount of that reduction.

15(1)Subject to sub-paragraphs (2) and (3) below, if by reason or in consequence of the construction of any of the works authorised by Part I of this Act, or any subsidence resulting from any of those works, any damage is caused to any apparatus (other than apparatus the repair of which is not reasonably necessary in view of its intended removal for the purposes of those works) or property of the undertakers, or there is any interruption in any service provided, or in the supply of any goods, by any of the undertakers, the nominated undertaker shall bear and pay the cost reasonably incurred by the undertakers in making good such damage or restoring the supply and shall—

(a)make reasonable compensation to the undertakers for loss sustained by them, and

(b)indemnify the undertakers against claims, demands, proceedings, costs, damages and expenses which may be made or taken against, or recovered from, or incurred by, the undertakers,

by reason or in consequence of any such damage or interruption.

(2)Nothing in sub-paragraph (1) above shall impose any liability on the nominated undertaker with respect to any damage or interruption to the extent that it is attributable to the act, neglect or default of the undertakers, their officers, servants, contractors or agents.

(3)The undertakers shall give the nominated undertaker reasonable notice of any such claim or demand and no settlement or compromise thereof shall be made without the consent of the nominated undertaker which, if it withholds such consent, shall have the sole conduct of any settlement or compromise or of any proceedings necessary to resist the claim or demand.

16The nominated undertaker shall, so far as is reasonably practicable, so exercise its powers under paragraphs 6 and 7 of Schedule 2 to this Act as not to obstruct or render less convenient the access to any apparatus.

17Notwithstanding the temporary stopping up or diversion of any highway under paragraph 6 of Schedule 3 to this Act, the undertakers may do all such works and things in any such highway as may be reasonably necessary to enable them to inspect, repair, maintain, renew, remove or use any apparatus which at the time of the stopping up or diversion was in that highway.

18(1)Any dispute arising between the nominated undertaker and the undertakers under this Part of this Schedule (other than a dispute under paragraph 5(1) to (4) above) shall be determined by an arbitrator who shall be appointed by agreement between the parties or, in default of such agreement, shall be the Secretary of State.

(2)In determining any such dispute the arbitrator may, if he thinks fit, require the nominated undertaker to construct any temporary or other works so as to avoid, so far as reasonably possible, interference with the use of any apparatus.

Part IIIProtection of Land Drainage, Flood Defence, Water Resources and Fisheries

  • “plans” includes sections, drawings, specifications and method statements;

  • “specified work” means so much of any permanent or temporary work authorised by Part I of this Act (which includes, for the avoidance of doubt, any dredging and any geotechnical investigations that may be undertaken) as is likely to—

    (a)

    affect any drainage work or the volumetric rate of flow of water in or flowing to or from any drainage work;

    (b)

    affect the flow, purity or quality of water in any watercourse or other surface waters or ground water;

2(1)Before beginning to construct any specified work, the nominated undertaker shall submit to the Agency plans of the work and such further particulars available to it as the Agency may within 14 days of the submission of the plans reasonably require.

(2)Any such specified work shall not be constructed except in accordance with such plans as may be approved in writing by the Agency, or determined under paragraph 12 below.

(3)Any approval of the Agency required under this paragraph—

(a)shall not be unreasonably withheld;

(b)shall be deemed to have been given if it is neither given nor refused within 28 days of the submission of the plans for approval; and

(c)may be given subject to such reasonable requirements as the Agency may make for the protection of any drainage work or fishery or for the protection of water resources, or for the prevention of flooding or pollution.

3The requirements which the Agency may make under paragraph 2 above include conditions requiring the nominated undertaker at its own expense to construct such protective works (including any new works as well as alterations to existing works) as are reasonably necessary—

(a)to safeguard any drainage work against damage, or

(b)to secure that its efficiency for flood defence purposes is not impaired,

during the construction of the specified work.

4(1)Any specified work, and all protective works required by the Agency under paragraph 2 above, shall be constructed to the reasonable satisfaction of the Agency and the Agency shall be entitled by its officer to watch and inspect the construction of such works.

(2)The nominated undertaker shall give to the Agency not less than 14 days' notice in writing of its intention to commence construction of any specified work and notice in writing of its completion not later than 7 days after the date on which it is brought into use.

(3)If any part of the works comprising a structure in, over or under a watercourse is constructed otherwise than in accordance with the requirements of this Part of this Schedule, the Agency may by notice in writing require the nominated undertaker at the nominated undertaker’s own expense to comply with the requirements of this Part of this Schedule or (if the nominated undertaker so elects and the Agency in writing consents, such consent not to be unreasonably withheld) to remove, alter or pull down the work and, where removal is required, to restore the site to its former condition to such extent and within such limits as the Agency reasonably requires.

(4)Subject to sub-paragraph (5) below, if within a reasonable period, being not less than 28 days from the date when a notice under sub-paragraph (3) above is served upon the nominated undertaker, it has failed to begin taking steps to comply with the requirements of the notice and thereafter to make reasonably expeditious progress towards their implementation, the Agency may execute the works specified in the notice and any expenditure incurred by it in so doing shall be recoverable from the nominated undertaker.

(5)In the event of any dispute as to whether sub-paragraph (3) above is properly applicable to any work in respect of which notice has been served under that sub-paragraph, or as to the reasonableness of any requirement of such a notice, the Agency shall not except in an emergency exercise the powers conferred by sub-paragraph (4) above until the dispute has been finally determined.

5(1)Any work constructed under Part I of this Act for the purpose of providing a flood defence shall be maintained to the reasonable satisfaction of the Agency by the person who has control of the work.

(2)If any such work is not maintained to the reasonable satisfaction of the Agency, the Agency may by notice in writing require that person to repair and restore the work, or any part thereof, or (if the person having control of the work so elects and the Agency in writing consents, such consent not to be unreasonably withheld), to remove the work and restore the site (including any sea defences) to its former condition, to such extent and within such limits as the Agency reasonably requires.

(3)If, within a reasonable period being not less than 28 days beginning with the date on which a notice in respect of any work is served under sub-paragraph (2) above on the person who has control of that work, that person has failed to begin taking steps to comply with the reasonable requirements of the notice and has not thereafter made reasonably expeditious progress towards their implementation, the Agency may do what is necessary for such compliance and may recover any expenditure reasonably incurred by it in so doing from that person.

(4)In the event of any dispute as to the reasonableness of any requirement of a notice served under sub-paragraph (2) above, the Agency shall not except in a case of immediate foreseeable need exercise the powers of sub-paragraph (3) above until the dispute has been finally determined.

6(1)If by reason of the construction of any specified work or of the failure of any such work the efficiency of any drainage work for flood defence purposes is impaired, or that work is otherwise damaged, so as to require remedial action, such impairment or damage shall be made good by the nominated undertaker to the reasonable satisfaction of the Agency.

(2)If such impaired or damaged drainage work for flood defence purposes is not made good to the reasonable satisfaction of the Agency, the Agency may by notice in writing require the nominated undertaker to restore it to its former standard of efficiency or where necessary to construct some other work in substitution therefor.

(3)If, within a reasonable period being not less than 28 days beginning with the date on which a notice in respect of impaired or damaged drainage work for flood defence purposes is served under sub-paragraph (2) above on the nominated undertaker, the nominated undertaker has failed to begin taking steps to comply with the requirements of the notice and has not thereafter made reasonably expeditious progress towards its implementation, the Agency may do what is necessary for such compliance and may recover any expenditure reasonably incurred by it in so doing from the nominated undertaker.

(4)In the event of any dispute as to the reasonableness of any requirement of a notice served under sub-paragraph (2) above, the Agency shall not except in a case of immediate foreseeable need exercise the powers conferred by sub-paragraph (3) above until the dispute has been finally determined.

7(1)The nominated undertaker shall take all such measures as may be reasonably practicable to prevent any interruption of the free passage of fish in any fishery during the construction of any specified work.

(2)If by reason of—

(a)the construction of any specified work, or

(b)the failure of any such work,

damage to a fishery is caused, or the Agency has reason to expect that such damage may be caused, the Agency may serve notice on the nominated undertaker requiring it to take such steps as may be reasonably practicable to make good the damage or, as the case may be, to protect the fishery against such damage.

(3)If, within such time as may be reasonably practicable for that purpose after the receipt of written notice from the Agency of any damage or expected damage to a fishery, the nominated undertaker fails to take such steps as are described in sub-paragraph (2) above, the Agency may take those steps and may recover from the nominated undertaker the expense reasonably incurred by it in doing so.

(4)In any case where immediate action by the Agency is reasonably required in order to secure that the risk of damage to a fishery is avoided or reduced, the Agency may take such steps as are reasonable for the purpose, and may recover from the nominated undertaker the reasonable cost of so doing provided that notice specifying those steps is served on the nominated undertaker as soon as reasonably practicable after the Agency has taken, or commenced to take, the steps specified in the notice.

8(1)The nominated undertaker shall indemnify the Agency from all claims, demands, proceedings or damages, which may be made or taken against, or recovered from the Agency by reason of—

(a)any damage to any drainage work so as to impair its efficiency for flood defence purposes,

(b)any damage to a fishery,

(c)any raising or lowering of the water table in land adjoining the works authorised by this Act or any sewers, drains and watercourses, or

(d)any flooding or increased flooding of any such lands,

which is caused by, or results from, the construction of any specified work or any act or omission of the nominated undertaker, its contractors, agents or employees whilst engaged upon the work.

(2)The Agency shall give to the nominated undertaker reasonable notice of any such claim or demand and no settlement or compromise thereof shall be made without the consent of the nominated undertaker which, if it withholds such consent, shall have the sole conduct of any settlement or compromise or of any proceedings necessary to resist the claim or demand.

9Nothing in paragraph 8 above shall require the nominated undertaker to indemnify the Agency in respect of any claim, demand, proceedings or damages which the Agency could reasonably make, take against or recover from any other person.

10The fact that any work or thing has been executed or done in accordance with a plan approved or deemed to be approved by the Agency, or to its satisfaction, or in accordance with any directions or award of an arbitrator, shall not relieve the nominated undertaker from any liability under the provisions of this Part of this Schedule.
