There are outstanding changes not yet made by the legislation.gov.uk editorial team to Towns Improvement Clauses Act 1847. Any changes that have already been made by the team appear in the content and are referenced with annotations.
This section lists the commencement orders yet to be applied to the whole Act. These effects are included in this view as they may be (but won’t necessarily be) relevant to the specific provision that you are viewing. Where applicable the commencement orders are listed under two headings, firstly those that bring some part of the Act you are viewing into force and secondly, those that bring into force legislation that affects some part of the legislation you are viewing. If you are viewing a prospective version or there is a prospective version available there may be commencement orders listed here that are relevant to the provision you are viewing.
The commissioners may from time to time fix the hours within which only it shall be lawful to empty privies or remove offensive matter within the limits of the special Act; and when the commissioners have fixed such hours, and given public notice thereof, every person who within the limits of the special Act empties or begins to empty any privy, or removes along any thoroughfare within the said limits any offensive matter, at any time except within the hours so fixed, and also every person who at any time, whether such hours have been fixed by the commissioners or not, uses for any such purpose any cart or carriage not having a covering proper for preventing the escape of the contents of such cart, or of the stench thereof, or who wilfully slops or spills any such offensive matter in the removal thereof, or who does not carefully sweep and clean every place in which any such offensive matter has been placed, or unavoidably slopped or spilled, shall be liable to a penalty not exceeding [F1[F2£25]][F1level 1 on the standard scale]; and in default of the apprehension of the actual offender the driver or person having the care of the cart or carriage employed for any such purpose shall be deemed to be the offender.
Annotations are used to give authority for changes and other effects on the legislation you are viewing and to convey editorial information. They appear at the foot of the relevant provision or under the associated heading. Annotations are categorised by annotation type, such as F-notes for textual amendments and I-notes for commencement information (a full list can be found in the Editorial Practice Guide). Each annotation is identified by a sequential reference number. For F-notes, M-notes and X-notes, the number also appears in bold superscript at the relevant location in the text. All annotations contain links to the affecting legislation.
