(3)The court shall not amend under this paragraph a [F1community rehabilitation] or curfew order which contains requirements which, in the opinion of the court, cannot be complied with unless the offender continues to reside in the petty sessions area concerned unless, in accordance with paragraph 19 below, it either—

(a)cancels those requirements; or

(b)substitutes for those requirements other requirements which can be complied with if the offender ceases to reside in that area.

(4)Sub-paragraph (3) above applies also in relation to a [F2community punishment and rehabilitation order]whose [F3community rehabilitation element] contains requirements such as are mentioned in that sub-paragraph.

(5)The court shall not amend a [F4community punishment order] or [F2community punishment and rehabilitation order] under this paragraph unless it appears to the court that provision can be made for the offender to perform work under the order under the arrangements which exist for persons who reside in the other petty sessions area to perform work under such orders.
