The work which Eurostar is authorised by article 3(1) above to construct and maintain is the following–
In the County of Kent, Borough of Maidstone, Parish of Boxley, a new road, forming a diversion of Boarley Lane (D898), commencing in that road at a point 44 metres south-west of the building comprising Boarley Cottage, passing south-eastwards then south-westwards over the railway comprised in Work No. 13 authorised by the principal Act, then westwards, and terminating in Boarley Lane opposite the access to Boarley Oast.
1. The modifications referred to in article 7(2)(a) above are as follows.
2. For section 7 of the 1965 Act there shall be substituted–
In assessing the compensation to be paid by the acquiring authority under this Act regard shall be had not only to the extent (if any) to which the value of the land over which the right is purchased is depreciated by the acquisition of the right but also to the damage (if any) to be sustained by the owner of the land by reason of its severance from other land of his, or injuriously affecting that other land by the exercise of the powers conferred by this or the special Act.”.
3. In section 8 of that Act (provisions as to divided land) for subsection (1) there shall be substituted–
“(1) This subsection applies where–
(a)a notice to treat in respect of a right over land consisting of a house, building or manufactory or of a park or garden belonging to a house (“the relevant land”) has been served on a person under section 5 of this Act,
(b)in consequence of the service of the notice, a question of disputed compensation in respect of the purchase of the right would, apart from this section, fall to be determined by the Lands Tribunal, and
(c)before the Lands Tribunal have determined that question, the person on whom the notice has been served satisfies them that the relevant conditions are met.
(1A) The relevant conditions are–
(a)that he has an interest which he is able and willing to sell in the whole of the relevant land;
(b)where the relevant land consists of a house, building or manufactory, that it cannot be made subject to the right without material detriment to it; and
(c)where the relevant land consists of a park or garden belonging to a house, that it cannot be made subject to the right without seriously affecting the amenity or convenience of the house.
(1B) Where subsection (1) above applies–
(a)the compulsory purchase order shall, in relation to the person on whom the notice to treat has been served–
(i)cease to authorise the purchase of the right to which the notice relates, and
(ii)be deemed to authorise the purchase of that person’s interest in the whole of the relevant land including, where the land consists of a park or garden belonging to a house, the house, and
(b)the notice to treat shall be deemed to have been served in respect of that interest on such date as the Lands Tribunal direct.
(1C) Any question as to the extent of the land in which the compulsory purchase order is deemed to authorise the purchase of an interest by virtue of subsection (1B)(a)(ii) of this section shall be determined by the Lands Tribunal.
(1D) Where the Lands Tribunal determine that the person on whom a notice to treat has been served has satisfied them as mentioned in subsection (1)(c) of this section, the acquiring authority may withdraw the notice at any time within the period of six weeks beginning with the date of the determination.
(1E) Subsection (1D) of this section is without prejudice to any other power of the acquiring authority to withdraw the notice to treat.”.
4. The following provisions of that Act (which state the effect of a deed poll executed in various circumstances where there is no conveyance by persons with interests in the land) namely–
section 9(4) (failure of owners to convey),
paragraph 10(3) of Schedule 1 (owners under incapacity),
paragraph 2(3) of Schedule 2 (absent and untraced owners), and
paragraphs 2(3) and 7(2) of Schedule 4 (common land),
shall be so modified as to secure that, as against persons with interests in the land which are expressed to be overridden by the deed, the right which is to be purchased compulsorily is vested absolutely in the acquiring authority.
5. Section 11 of that Act (powers of entry) shall be so modified as to secure that, as from the date on which the acquiring authority have served notice to treat in respect of any right, they have power, exercisable in the like circumstances and subject to the like conditions, to enter for the purpose of exercising that right (which shall be deemed for this purpose to have been created on the date of service of the notice); and sections 12 (penalty for unauthorised entry) and 13 (entry on sheriff’s warrant in the event of obstruction) of that Act shall be modified correspondingly.
6. Section 20 of that Act (compensation for short term tenants) shall apply with the modifications necessary to secure that persons with such interests in land as are mentioned in that section are compensated in a manner corresponding to that in which they would be compensated on a compulsory acquisition of the land but taking into account only the extent (if any) of such interference with such interests as is actually caused, or likely to be caused, by the exercise of the right in question.
7. Section 22 of that Act (protection of acquiring authority’s possession of land where interest accidentally omitted from purchase) shall be so modified as to enable the acquiring authority, in circumstances corresponding to those referred to in that section, to continue to be entitled to exercise the right acquired, subject to compliance with that section as respects compensation.
8. References in that Act to land are, in appropriate contexts, to be read (according to the requirements of the particular context) as referring to, or as including references to–
(a)the right acquired or to be acquired, or
(b)the land over which the right is, or is to be, exercisable.
9. In the Land Compensation Act 1973(1), for section 44 there shall be substituted–
44. (1) Where a right over land is purchased from any person for the purpose of works which are to be situated partly on that land and partly elsewhere, compensation for injurious affection of land retained by that person shall be assessed by reference to the whole of the works and not only the part situated on the land over which the right is exercisable.
(2) In this section “compensation for injurious affection” means compensation for injurious affection under section 7 or 20 of the Compulsory Purchase Act 1965 as applied by article 7(2) of the Channel Tunnel Rail Link (Boarley Lane Diversion) Order 1999.”.
10. For section 58 of that Act there shall be substituted–
In determining under section 8(1)(c) of the Compulsory Purchase Act 1965 as applied by article 7(2) of the Channel Tunnel Rail Link (Boarley Lane Diversion) Order 1999 whether–
(a)a right over part of a house, building or manufactory can be taken without material detriment to the house, building or manufactory, or
(b)a right over part of a park or garden belonging to a house can be taken without seriously affecting the amenity or convenience of the house,
the Lands Tribunal shall take into account not only the effect of the right on the whole of the house, building or manufactory or of the house and the park or garden but also the use to be made of the right proposed to be acquired and, in a case where the right is proposed to be acquired for works or other purposes extending to other land, the effect of the whole of the works and the use to be made of the other land.”.
