EXPLANATORY NOTE

This order brings into force on 4th July 1984 in England, Wales and Scotland certain provisions of Part II (Pollution of Water) of the Control of Pollution Act 1974. The provisions in question relate principally to consents for discharges of effluent or other matter and to appeals to the Secretary of State against the unreasonable withholding of consent, or against unreasonable terms contained in notices revoking or modifying a consent, or questioning the reasonableness of the period specified in any such notice. Other provisions brought into force by the order are concerned with public participation in the consent procedure, and the modification of Part II in relation to discharges by water authorities and, in Scotland, islands Councils.

The order also brings into force in Scotland sections 49 and 56 of the Act, which are already in force in England and Wales, and certain other provisions making minor and consequential amendments of enactments.

The Control of Pollution Act 1974 (Commencement No. 15) Order 1983 (S.I. 1983/1175), which was initially incorrectly numbered, is amended so as to make it number

“16”.
