Regional Development Agencies Act 1998

Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

12(1)The powers conferred by this paragraph shall be exercisable where, on a representation made by statutory undertakers, it appears to the Secretary of State and the appropriate Minister to be expedient that the powers and duties of those undertakers should be extended or modified, in order—

(a)to secure the provision in the area of a regional development agency of services which would not otherwise be provided, or which would not otherwise be satisfactorily provided, or

(b)to facilitate an adjustment of the carrying on of the undertaking necessitated by any of the acts and events mentioned in sub-paragraph (2).

(2)The said acts and events are—

(a)the vesting in or acquisition by a regional development agency under this Act of any land in which an interest was held, or which was used, for the purpose of the carrying on of the undertaking of the statutory undertakers in question, and

(b)the extinguishment of a right or the imposition of any requirement by virtue of paragraph 9.

(3)The powers conferred by this paragraph shall also be exercisable where, on a representation made by a regional development agency, it appears to the Secretary of State and the appropriate Minister to be expedient that the powers and duties of statutory undertakers should be extended or modified in order to secure the provision of new services, or the extension of existing services, in the agency’s area.

(4)Where the powers conferred by this paragraph are exercisable, the Secretary of State and the appropriate Minister may, if they think fit, by order provide for such extension or modification of the powers and duties of the statutory undertakers as appears to them to be requisite in order to secure—

(a)the provision of the services in question, as mentioned in sub-paragraph (1)(a) or sub-paragraph (3); or

(b)the adjustment in question, as mentioned in sub-paragraph (1)(b),

as the case may be.

(5)Without prejudice to the generality of sub-paragraph (4), an order under this paragraph may make provision—

(a)for empowering the statutory undertakers to acquire (whether compulsorily or by agreement) any land specified in the order, and to erect or construct any buildings or works so specified,

(b)for applying, in relation to the acquisition of any such land or the construction of any such works, enactments relating to the acquisition of land and the construction of works,

(c)where it has been represented that the making of the order is expedient for the purposes mentioned in sub-paragraph (1)(a) or (3), for giving effect to such financial arrangements between the regional development agency concerned and the statutory undertakers as they may agree, or as, in default of agreement, may be determined to be equitable in such manner and by such tribunal as may be specified in the order, and

(d)for such incidental and supplemental matters as appear to the Secretary of State and the appropriate Minister to be expedient for the purposes of the order.
