(2)Where regulations made by the Minister so prescribe or the Minister in any particular case so directs, a like notice shall be served on such other authorities or persons as may be specified in the regulations or direction.
(3)Where a notice has been published by an authority under subsection (1) of this section, any person may serve on the Minister and on the authority, in the manner and within the period prescribed by regulations made by the Minister, notice of objection to the proposal.
(4)Where notice of objection has been served under the last foregoing subsection and not withdrawn, and the ground of objection is that the proposed work will be detrimental to the protection of any land specified in the notice, or will interfere with the exercise by the objector of his functions under any enactment other than this Act, the Minister shall either cause a local inquiry to be held or shall give to the objector and to all other persons appearing to him to be affected by the proposal an opportunity of being heard by a person appointed by him for the purpose; and after considering the report of the person appointed to hold the inquiry or to hear objections, the Minister shall determine the objection:
(a)where the objection is made by a [F2river authority] or other drainage authority, fishery board (other than the Tweed Commissioners) or local fisheries committee, or by the harbour authority for a harbour to which the M1Fishery Harbours Act 1915 applies, the powers of the Minister under this subsection shall be exercised jointly with [F3the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food];

(5)As soon as may be after the time for serving notices of objection under subsection (3) of this section has expired the Minister shall either approve the proposal or direct the authority not to carry out the proposed work or impose such modifications of the proposal or such conditions as to the carrying out of the work as he may think fit, having regard to the determination of objections as aforesaid.
(6)Nothing in this section shall prevent a coast protection authority from carrying out, without the provisions of this section having been complied with, any coast protection work which appears to them to be urgently necessary for the protection of any land in their area; but where work is so carried out [F7in the area of any [F2river authority] or other drainage authority and the coast protection authority is not a board on which the drainage authority are represented, the coast protection authority shall give to the drainage authority, before or as soon as possible after the commencement of the work, notice of the nature of the work.][F7the coast protection authority shall, before or as soon as possible after the commencement of the work, give notice of the nature of the work —
(a)to the National Rivers Authority where it is not represented on the coast protection authority; and
(b)to any internal drainage board which are not so represented and in whose district the work is to be or has been carried out.]
(7)In the application of this section to Scotland, subsection (4) shall have effect as if in the proviso for the words from “by a [F2river authority]” to “any other harbour authority” there were substituted the words “by a harbour authority other than the authority for a harbour principally used by the fishing industry”, and as if for the words “the said powers” there were substituted the words “the powers of the Minister under this subsection”.
