Section 14: Offences by bodies corporate under the 1960 Act

48.This section inserts section 26A as a new section into the CSCDA 1960.  The section applies to any offence under the CSCDA 1960 committed in relation to land in England.  It mirrors the provision already included in section 14 of the CSA 1968, which deals with where an offence has been committed by a body corporate.  The section provides where a body corporate commits an offence under the CSCDA 1960 and it is proved that the offence was committed with the consent or connivance of an officer of the body corporate, or the offence was attributable to neglect on the part of this person, then this person is guilty of the offence as well as the body corporate.  Proceedings can be brought against this person as well as the body corporate and they may be punished accordingly.  Subsection (3) of the new section defines what is meant by an officer of a body corporate.
