[F119BEffect of an advisory notice.E+W

(1)While an advisory notice has effect, it is not lawful for the body concerned or any officer of that body—

(a)where the notice relates to a decision, to make or implement the decision,

(b)where the notice relates to a course of action, to take or continue to take the course of action, or

(c)where the notice relates to an item of account, to enter the item of account,

unless and until the conditions set out in subsection (2) are satisfied.

(2)The conditions are—

(a)that the body has considered, in the light of the advisory notice and the statement under section 19A(6), the consequences of doing the thing mentioned in the paragraph of subsection (1) which is relevant,

(b)that the body or officer has given the person who is for the time being the auditor of the accounts of the body the period of notice in writing required by the advisory notice under section 19A(3)(d), and

(c)that that period has expired.

(3)An advisory notice takes effect on the day on which a copy of the notice is served on the person to whom it is addressed, and ceases to have effect—

(a)where a statement of reasons is not served in accordance with subsection (6) of section 19A, at the end of the period specified in that subsection, or

(b)when it is withdrawn under section 19A(8).

(4)Any expenses reasonably incurred by an auditor in or in connection with the issue of an advisory notice are recoverable by him from the body concerned.

(5)In this section “the body concerned”, in relation to an advisory notice, means the body to which, or to any officer of which, the notice is addressed.

19C.—(1) Where—

(a)before an advisory notice is served, a body enters into a contract to dispose of or acquire an interest in land, and

(b)before the disposal or acquisition is completed, an advisory notice takes effect as a result of which it is unlawful for the body to complete the disposal or acquisition,

the existence of the advisory notice does not prejudice any remedy in damages which may be available to any person by reason of the body’s failure to complete the contract.

(2)No action lies against an auditor in respect of loss or damage alleged to have been caused by reason of the issue of an advisory notice which was issued in good faith.]
