Flood and Water Management Act 2010


232.Paragraph 14 requires the Minister to make an order to make provision about enforcement of the requirement for approval under this Schedule. The order can be used to make provision for taking enforcement action in cases where construction starts without approval of its drainage system, where any of the conditions that the approval was based on are breached or where construction of the drainage system does not follow the approved proposals.

233.The order can include provisions about notices including enforcement notices, stop notices, temporary notices and breach of condition notices; allowing for applications to be made to a court or tribunal; confer powers including discretionary powers on the Minister or other authorities, powers of entry, powers of inspection and powers to undertake and charge for remedial work; and provisions about the consequences of failure to comply with the order itself or notices produced under it. If the Minister wishes, the order can apply or make provisions similar to provision in the Town and Country Planning Act 1990.

234.The order under this paragraph will be subject to the affirmative resolution procedure.
