Crossrail Act 2008


Section 16: Disapplication and modification of controls

59.Section 16 brings into effect Schedule 9, which contains provisions dealing with the heritage aspects of Crossrail. Section 16 also allows the Secretary of State to make an order which would, in effect, switch off various parts of Schedule 9 in relation to any work constructed in exercise of the powers in this Act. This would enable the restoration of the normal consents regime following the construction of Crossrail and allow post-construction maintenance of Crossrail works to be controlled in the usual way for works affecting listed buildings and other historic property.
