Whole provisions yet to be inserted into this Act (including any effects on those provisions):
Commencement Orders bringing legislation that affects this Act into force:
11(1)In so far as a compulsory purchase order authorises the purchase of any land forming part of a common or open space, the order shall be subject to special parliamentary procedure unless the Secretary of State is satisfied—S
(a)that there has been or will be given in exchange for such land other land, not being less in area (unless the persons in whom the land was vested otherwise agree) and being equally advantageous to the persons, if any, entitled to rights of common or other rights, and to the public, and that the land given in exchange has been or will be vested in the persons in whom the land purchased was vested, and subject to the like rights, trusts and incidents as attach to the land purchased, or
(b)[F1that the land does not exceed 250 square yards in extent or is] required for the widening of an existing [F2public road (within the meaning of the Roads (Scotland) Act 1984)] and that the giving in exchange of other land is unnecessary, whether in the interests of the persons, if any, entitled to rights of common or other rights or in the interests of the public.
and certifies accordingly.
(2)Where it is proposed to give a certificate under this paragraph, the Secretary of State shall [F3direct the acquiring authority to] give public notice of his intention so to do, and—
(a)after affording opportunity to all persons interested to make representations and objections in relation thereto, and
(b)after causing a public local inquiry to be held in any case where it appears to him to be expedient so to do, having regard to any representations or objections made,
he may, after considering representations and objections made and, if an inquiry has been held, the report of the person who held the inquiry, give the certificate.
[F4(3)Notice under sub-paragraph (2) of this paragraph shall be given in such form and manner as the Secretary of State may direct.]
