Revised legislation carried on this site may not be fully up to date. Changes and effects are recorded by our editorial team in lists which can be found in the ‘Changes to Legislation’ area. Where those effects have yet to be applied to the text of the legislation by the editorial team they are also listed alongside the legislation in the affected provisions. Use the ‘more’ link to open the changes and effects relevant to the provision you are viewing.
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.
No person shall suffer any waste or stagnant water to remain in any cellar or other place within any house belonging to or occupied by him within the limits of the special Act, so as to be a nuisance; and every person who so suffers any such water to remain for forty-eight hours after receiving notice from the commissioners to remove the same, and every person who allows the contents of any privy or cesspool to overflow or soak therefrom, to the annoyance of the occupiers of any adjoining property, shall for every such offence be liable to a penalty not exceeding [F1[F2£25]][F1level 1 on the standard scale], and to a further penalty not exceeding [F325p] for every day during which such nuisance continues; and the commissioners may drain and cleanse out any stagnant pools, ditches, or ponds of water within the limits of the special Act, and abate any such nuisance as aforesaid, and for that purpose may enter, by their officers and workmen, into and upon any building or land within the said limits at all reasonable times, and do all necessary acts for any of the purposes aforesaid; and the expences incurred thereby shall be paid by the person committing such offence, or occupying the building or land whence such annoyance proceeds, and if there be no occupier, by the owner of such building or land, and shall be recoverable as damages.
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.
