Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, Scottish Office
St Andrew’s House,
5th October 1994
(This note is not part of the Order)
This Order amends the Town and Country Planning (General Development Procedure) (Scotland) Amendment Order 1992 (“the 1992 Order”). The amendment is consequent upon the restructuring of the coal industry, and establishment of the Coal Authority (“CA”) and a new licensing system provided by the Coal Industry Act 1994.
Article 2 of the Order amends article 15(1)(b) of the 1992 Order to provide that planning authorities should consult the CA, instead of the British Coal Corporation (“BCC”), on applications for specified developments in areas of coal working already notified to them by BCC and in any new areas specified by the CA. Article 3 makes transitional provisions in respect of such areas already notified by BCC prior to the coming into force of the Order.
