SCHEDULE 7MODIFICATION OF COMPENSATION AND COMPULSORY PURCHASE ENACTMENTS FOR CREATION OF NEW RIGHTS

Compensation enactments

1.  The enactments for the time being in force with respect to compensation for the compulsory purchase of land shall apply, with the necessary modifications as respects compensation, in the case of a compulsory acquisition under this Order of a right by the creation of a new right as they apply as respects compensation on the compulsory purchase of land and interests in land.

2.  (1)  Without prejudice to the generality of paragraph 1, the Land Compensation Act 1973(1) shall have effect subject to the modifications set out in sub-paragraphs (2) and (3).

(2) In section 44(1) (compensation for injurious affection), as it applies to compensation for injurious affection under section 7 of the 1965 Act as substituted by paragraph 4—

(a)for the words “land is acquired or taken” there shall be substituted the words “a right over land is purchased”; and

(b)for the words “acquired or taken from him” there shall be substituted the words “over which the right is exercisable”.

(3) In section 58(1) (determination of material detriment where part of house etc. proposed for compulsory acquisition), as it applies to determinations under section 8 of the 1965 Act as substituted by paragraph 5—

(a)for the word “part” in paragraphs (a) and (b) there shall be substituted the words “a right over land consisting”;

(b)for the word “severance” there shall be substituted the words “right over the whole of the house, building or manufactory or of the house and the park or garden”;

(c)for the words “part proposed” there shall be substituted the words “right proposed”; and

(d)for the words “part is” there shall be substituted the words “right is”.

Adaptation of the 1965 Act

3.  (1)  The 1965 Act shall have effect with the modifications necessary to make it apply to the compulsory acquisition under this Order of a right by the creation of a new right as it applies to the compulsory acquisition under this Order of land, so that, in appropriate contexts, references in that Act to land are 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.

(2) Without prejudice to the generality of sub-paragraph (1), Part I of the 1965 Act shall apply in relation to the compulsory acquisition under this Order of a right by the creation of a new right with the modifications specified in the following provisions of this Schedule.

4.  For section 7 of the 1965 Act (measure of compensation) there shall be substituted the following section:

7.  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 to be acquired 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..

5.  For section 8 of the 1965 Act (provisions as to divided land) there shall be substituted the following:—

8.  (1)  Where in consequence of the service on a person under section 5 of this Act of 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”)—

(a)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 (“the tribunal”); and

(b)before the tribunal has determined that question the person satisfies the tribunal that he has an interest which he is able and willing to sell in the whole of the relevant land and—

(i)where that land consists of a house, building or manufactory, that the right cannot be purchased without material detriment to that land; or

(ii)where that land consists of such a park or garden, that the right cannot be purchased without seriously affecting the amenity or convenience of the house to which that land belongs;

the Docklands Light Railway (Capacity Enhancement) Order 2005 (“the Order”) shall, in relation to that person, cease to authorise the purchase of the right and be deemed to authorise the purchase of that person’s interest in the whole of the relevant land including, where the land consists of such a park or garden, the house to which it belongs, and the notice shall be deemed to have been served in respect of that interest on such date as the tribunal directs.

(2) Any question as to the extent of the land in which the Order is deemed to authorise the purchase of an interest by virtue of subsection (1) of this section shall be determined by the tribunal.

(3) Where in consequence of a determination of the tribunal that it is satisfied as mentioned in subsection (1) of this section the Order is deemed by virtue of that subsection to authorise the purchase of an interest in land, the acquiring authority may, at any time within the period of six weeks beginning with the date of the determination, withdraw the notice to treat in consequence of which the determination was made; but nothing in this subsection prejudices any other power of the authority to withdraw the notice.

6.  The following provisions of the 1965 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), that is to say:—

(a)section 9(4) (failure by owners to convey);

(b)paragraph 10(3) of Schedule 1 (owners under incapacity);

(c)paragraph 2(3) of Schedule 2 (absent and untraced owners); and

(d)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 compulsorily acquired is vested absolutely in the acquiring authority.

7.  Section 11 of the 1965 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 warrant in the event of obstruction) of the 1965 Act shall be modified correspondingly.

8.  Section 20 of the 1965 Act (protection for interests of tenants at will, etc.) 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 under this Order of that land, but taking into account only the extent (if any) of such interference with such an interest as is actually caused, or likely to be caused, by the exercise of the right in question.

9.  Section 22 of the 1965 Act (protection of acquiring authority’s possession where by inadvertence an estate, right or interest has not been got in) 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.

(2) In the provisions of the 1990 Act, as applied by sub-paragraph (1), references to the appropriate Minister are references to the Secretary of State.

(3) Where any apparatus of public utility undertakers or of an electronic communications code operator or former PTO is removed in pursuance of a notice or order given or made under section 271, 272 or 273 of the 1990 Act, as applied by sub-paragraph (1), any person who is the owner or occupier of premises to which a supply was given from that apparatus shall be entitled to recover from DLRL compensation in respect of expenditure reasonably incurred by him, in consequence of the removal, for the purpose of effecting a connection between the premises and any other apparatus from which a supply is given.

(4) Sub-paragraph (3) shall not apply in the case of the removal of a public sewer but where such a sewer is removed in pursuance of such a notice or order as is mentioned in that sub-paragraph, any person who is—

(a)the owner or occupier of premises the drains of which communicated with that sewer; or

(b)the owner of a private sewer which communicated with that sewer,

shall be entitled to recover from DLRL compensation in respect of expenditure reasonably incurred by him, in consequence of the removal, for the purpose of making his drain or sewer communicate with any other public sewer or with a private sewage disposal plant.

(b)apparatus (whether existing apparatus or apparatus substituted for existing apparatus) is placed at a depth greater than the depth at which the existing apparatus was,

and the placing of apparatus of that type or capacity or of those dimensions or the placing of apparatus at that depth, as the case may be, is not agreed by DLRL, or, in default of agreement, is not determined by arbitration to be necessary in consequence of the construction of the relocation works, then, if it involves cost in the execution of the relocation works exceeding that which would have been involved if the apparatus placed had been of the existing type, capacity or dimensions, or at the existing depth, as the case may be, the amount which apart from this sub-paragraph would be payable to the statutory utility by virtue of sub-paragraph (4) shall be reduced by the amount of that excess.

(6) For the purposes of sub-paragraph (5)—

(a)an extension of apparatus to a length greater than the length of existing apparatus shall not be treated as a placing of apparatus of greater dimensions than those of the existing apparatus except in a case where the apparatus as so extended provides more than an equivalent service; and

(b)where the provision of a joint in a cable is agreed, or is determined to be necessary, the consequential provision of a jointing chamber or of a manhole shall be treated as if it also had been agreed or had been so determined.

(7) An amount which apart from this sub-paragraph would be payable to a statutory utility in respect of works by virtue of sub-paragraph (4) (and having regard, where relevant, to sub-paragraph (5)) shall, if the works include the placing of apparatus provided in substitution for apparatus placed more than 7 years and 6 months earlier so as to confer on the statutory utility any financial benefit by deferment of the time for renewal of the apparatus in the ordinary course, be reduced by the amount which represents that benefit as calculated in accordance with the Code of Practice entitled “Measures Necessary where Apparatus is Affected by Major Works (Diversionary Works)” and dated June 1992 and approved by the Secretary of State on 30th June, 1992, as revised and re-issued from time to time.

(b)the allowable costs shall be borne by DLRL and the statutory utility in such proportions as may be prescribed by any such regulations.

(9) The temporary stopping up, alteration or diversion of any highway under article 13 of this Order shall not affect any right of an electronic communications code operator or a former PTO under paragraph 9 of the electronic communications code in respect of any apparatus which at the time of the stopping up or diversion is in the highway.

(10) In this paragraph—

6.  Any such highway shall be reinstated by DLRL in a manner reasonably approved by the appropriate Council and to its reasonable satisfaction.

7.  DLRL shall not, except with the consent of the appropriate Council, deposit any soil, subsoil or materials or stand any vehicle or plant on any highway (except on so much thereof as is for the time being temporarily stopped up or occupied under the powers of this Order) so as to obstruct the use of such highway by any person or, except with the like consent, deposit any soil, subsoil or materials on any highway except within a hoarding.

8.  Except in an emergency or where reasonably necessary to secure the safety of the public no direction or instruction shall be given by the appropriate Council to the contractors, servants or agents of DLRL regarding any highway operations without the prior consent in writing of DLRL; but the appropriate Council shall not be liable for any additional costs which may be incurred as a result of the giving of instructions or directions pursuant to this paragraph.

9.  DLRL shall, if reasonably so required by the appropriate Council, provide and maintain during such time as DLRL may occupy any part of a highway for the purpose of the construction of any part of the authorised works, temporary ramps for vehicular traffic or pedestrian traffic, or both, and any other traffic measures required to protect the safety of road users in accordance with the standard recommended in Chapter 8 of the Traffic Signs Manual issued for the purposes of the Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions 1994(3) in such position as may be necessary to prevent undue interference with the flow of traffic in any highway.

10.  DLRL shall indemnify the appropriate Council against any claim which may arise as a result of any subsidence of, or damage to, any highway or any retained sanitary convenience, refuge, sewer, drain, lamp column, traffic sign, bollard, bin for refuse or road materials or apparatus connected therewith or any other property or work belonging to, or under the jurisdiction or control of, the appropriate Council on or under any highway, or maintainable by them, which may be caused by, or in consequence of, any act or default of DLRL, its contractors, servants or agents but the appropriate Council shall give to DLRL reasonable notice of any such claim and no settlement or compromise of it shall be made without DLRL’s prior consent.

11.  Wherever in this Schedule provision is made with respect to the approval or consent of the appropriate Council, that approval or consent shall be in writing and may be given subject to such reasonable terms and conditions as the appropriate Council may require in the interests of safety and in order to minimise inconvenience to persons using the highway, but shall not be unreasonably withheld.

12.  Any difference arising between DLRL and the appropriate Council under this Schedule (other than a difference as to its meaning or construction) shall be determined by arbitration in accordance with article 54 of this Order.

(b)the failure of any such work,

damage to the fishery is caused, or the Agency has reasonable grounds to believe to expect that such damage shall be caused, the Agency may serve notice on DLRL requiring it to take such steps as may be reasonably practicable to make good the damage or, as the case may be, to protect the fishery against such damage.

(3) If, within such time as may be reasonably practicable for that purpose after the receipt of written notice from the Agency of any damage or expected damage to the fishery, DLRL fails to take such steps as are described in sub-paragraph (2), the Agency may take those steps and may recover from DLRL the expense reasonably incurred by it in doing so.

8.  DLRL shall indemnify the Agency in respect of all costs, charges and expenses which the Agency may reasonably incur or have to pay or which it may sustain—

(a)in the examination or approval of plans and reports under this Schedule,

(b)in the inspection of the construction of the specified works or any protective works required by the Agency under this Schedule.

9.  (1)  Without prejudice to the other provisions of this Schedule, DLRL shall indemnify the Agency from all claims, demands, proceedings, costs, damages or expenses or loss which may be made or taken against, or recovered from the Agency by reason of—

(a)any damage to any drainage work so as to impair its efficiency for the purposes of flood defence,

(b)any damage to the fishery,

(c)any raising of the water table in land adjoining the works or any sewers, drains and watercourses,

(d)any flooding or increased flooding of any such lands, or

(e)inadequate water quality in any watercourse or other surface waters or in groundwater,

which is caused by the construction of any of the works or any act or omission of DLRL, its contractors, agents, or employees whilst engaged upon any such work.

(2) The Agency shall give DLRL reasonable notice of any such claim or demand and no settlement or compromise thereof shall be made without the agreement of DLRL, which agreement shall not be unreasonably withheld.

10.  (1)  The fact that any work or thing has been executed or done in accordance with a plan approved or deemed to be approved by the Agency, or to its satisfaction, or in accordance with any directions or award by an arbitrator, shall not relieve DLRL from any liability under the provisions of this Schedule.

(2) Sub-paragraph (1) shall not apply to the extent that such liability arises from a failure by the Agency properly to perform its functions.

11.  Any difference arising between DLRL and the Agency under this Schedule (other than a difference as to its meaning or construction) shall be determined by arbitration in accordance with article 54 of this Order.

Removal of apparatus

8.  Paragraphs 9 to 11 apply where—

(a)DLRL requires the removal of any apparatus for the purpose of constructing any of the authorised works and gives to the specified undertaker not less than 56 days' written notice of that requirement together with a plan of the proposed work and of the proposed position of the alternative apparatus to be provided or constructed; or

(b)in consequence of the exercise or proposed exercise of any of the powers of this Order, the specified undertaker reasonably requires to remove any apparatus.

9.  DLRL shall, if it is practicable to do so, afford to the specified undertaker the necessary rights and facilities for the construction of any necessary alternative apparatus in other land which is available for the purpose and which is held or used, or intended for use, by DLRL for the purpose of its undertaking or in which it has sufficient rights or interests and thereafter for the use, maintenance, repair, renewal and inspection of such apparatus and, if DLRL is unable to obtain those rights and facilities, the specified undertaker shall, on receipt of a written notice to that effect from DLRL, use its best endeavours to obtain the necessary rights and facilities.

10.  Any alternative apparatus to be constructed by the specified undertaker pursuant to paragraph 9 shall be constructed in such manner, and in such line or situation, as may be agreed between the specified undertaker and DLRL or, in default of agreement, determined by arbitration.

11.  The specified undertaker shall, after the manner of construction and the line or situation of any necessary alternative apparatus have been agreed or determined and after the grant to or obtaining by the specified undertaker of any such facilities and rights as are referred to in paragraph 9, proceed with all reasonable despatch to construct and bring into operation the alternative apparatus and thereafter to remove any apparatus required by DLRL to be removed in accordance with paragraph 8.

Removal of apparatus and construction of alternative apparatus by DLRL

12.  Paragraphs 13 to 15 apply to so much of the work necessary in connection with the construction of alternative apparatus, or the removal of apparatus required to be removed, as will take place in any land held or used, or intended for use, by DLRL for the purpose of its undertaking.

13.  If DLRL gives notice in writing to the specified undertaker that it desires to carry out any part of any work to which this paragraph applies, such work, instead of being carried out by the specified undertaker, may be carried out by DLRL with the prior written consent of the specified undertaker (which shall not be unreasonably withheld and shall be subject to any such conditions as are reasonable and proper to protect the apparatus) in accordance with plans and in a position agreed between the specified undertaker and DLRL or, in default of agreement, determined by arbitration, with all reasonable despatch under the superintendence (if given) and to the reasonable satisfaction of the specified undertaker.

14.  In carrying out any work under paragraph 13 DLRL shall comply with all statutory obligations which would have been applicable had the works been carried out by the specified undertaker.

15.  Nothing in paragraph 13 shall authorise DLRL to carry out the actual placing, erection, installation, bedding, packing, removal, connection or disconnection of any apparatus or, where the apparatus is laid in a trench, execute any filling around the apparatus within 300 millimetres (measured in any direction) of the apparatus.

Facilities and rights for alternative apparatus

16.  Where, in accordance with the provisions of this Schedule, DLRL affords to the specified undertaker facilities and rights for the construction, use, maintenance, renewal and inspection in land of DLRL of alternative apparatus in substitution for apparatus to be removed as aforesaid, those facilities and rights shall be granted upon such terms and conditions as may be agreed between DLRL and the specified undertaker or, in default of agreement, determined by arbitration.

17.  In determining the terms and conditions mentioned in paragraph 16 in respect of alternative apparatus to be constructed across or along the authorised works the arbitrator shall—

(a)give effect to all reasonable requirements of DLRL for ensuring the safety of the authorised works and for securing any subsequent alterations or adaptations of the alternative apparatus which may be required to prevent interference with any such works; and

(b)so far as it may be reasonable and practicable to do so in the circumstances of the case, give effect to any terms and conditions applicable to the apparatus (if any) constructed across or along the authorised works for which the alternative apparatus is to be substituted and to any other reasonable requirements of the specified undertaker.

18.  If the facilities and rights to be afforded by DLRL in respect of any alternative apparatus under paragraph 16 and the terms and conditions subject to which the same are to be granted are, in the opinion of the arbitrator, more or less favourable on the whole to the specified undertaker than the facilities, rights, terms and conditions applying to the apparatus to be removed, the arbitrator shall make such provision for the payment of compensation to or by DLRL by or to the specified undertaker in respect thereof as shall appear to him to be reasonable having regard to all the circumstances of the case.

Retained apparatus: protection and plan approval

19.  Not less than 56 days before commencing to construct or renew any specified work, DLRL shall submit to the specified undertaker plans of the works.

20.  In relation to a work which is a specified work because of its proximity to or effect on a sewer, the plans to be submitted to the specified undertaker under paragraph 19 shall be detailed plans describing—

(a)the exact position of the specified work;

(b)the level at which it is proposed to be constructed or renewed;

(c)the manner of its construction or renewal;

22.  Any approval of the specified undertaker required under paragraph 21—

(a)may be given subject to reasonable conditions for any purpose mentioned in paragraph 23;

(b)shall not be unreasonably withheld; and

(c)shall be deemed to have been given if it is neither given nor refused within 56 days of the submission of plans for approval.

23.  In relation to a work to which paragraph 20 applies, the specified undertaker may require such modifications to be made to the plans as may be reasonably necessary for the purpose of securing its sewerage system against interference or risk of damage or for the purpose of providing or securing proper and convenient means of access to any sewer.

24.  A specified work shall be constructed (and in the case of any temporary work removed) only in accordance with—

(a)the plans submitted as aforesaid (and, in the case of plans relating to sewers approved, deemed to have been approved or settled by arbitration, as amended from time to time by agreement between DLRL and the specified undertaker); and

(b)all reasonable requirements made by the specified undertaker for the alteration, or otherwise for the protection, of the apparatus, or for securing access thereto;

and the specified undertaker shall be entitled by its officer to watch and inspect the carrying out of the work.

25.  If within 42 days after the submission to it of any plans under paragraph 19, in consequence of the works proposed by DLRL the specified undertaker reasonably requires the removal of any apparatus and gives written notice to DLRL of that requirement, the foregoing provisions of this Schedule shall have effect as if the removal of such apparatus had been required by the specified undertaker under paragraph 8.

26.  Nothing in paragraphs 19 or 25 shall preclude DLRL from submitting at any time, or from time to time, but in no case less than 28 days before commencing the construction of any specified work, a new plan thereof in lieu of the plan previously submitted, and thereupon the provisions of those paragraphs shall apply to, and in respect of, such new plan save that the reference in paragraph 25 to 42 days shall be treated as a reference to 21 days.

27.  DLRL shall not be required to comply with paragraph 19 in a case where it is necessary to carry out emergency works but, in such a case, it shall give to the specified undertaker notice so soon as reasonably practicable, and a plan of the works so soon as reasonably practicable thereafter, and shall comply with paragraph 24 so far as reasonably practicable in the circumstances.

28.  Nothing in paragraph 27 shall entitle DLRL to carry out works to any apparatus but, upon receipt of notice from DLRL, the specified undertaker shall proceed to carry out such works as may be required with all reasonable despatch.

Co-operation

29.  Where in consequence of the proposed construction of any of the authorised works, DLRL or a specified undertaker requires the removal of apparatus under paragraph 8 or a specified undertaker makes requirements for the protection or alteration of apparatus under paragraph 24, DLRL shall use its best endeavours to co-ordinate the execution of the works in the interests of safety and the efficient and economic execution of the authorised works and each specified undertaker shall use its best endeavours to co-operate with DLRL for that purpose.

Access

30.  If in consequence of the exercise of the powers of this Order the access to any apparatus is materially obstructed DLRL shall provide such alternative means of access to such apparatus as will enable the specified undertaker to maintain or use the apparatus no less effectively than was possible before such obstruction.

Expenses

31.  Subject to the provisions of the following paragraphs of this Schedule, DLRL shall repay to the specified undertaker the reasonable expenses incurred by the specified undertaker in, or in connection with—

(a)the inspection, removal and relaying or replacing, alteration or protection of any apparatus or the construction of any new apparatus under any provision of this Schedule (including any costs reasonably incurred or compensation properly paid in connection with the acquisition of rights or exercise of statutory powers for such apparatus);

(b)the cutting off of any apparatus from any other apparatus, or the making safe of any redundant apparatus in consequence of the exercise by DLRL of any power under this Order;

(c)the survey of any land, apparatus or works, the inspection and monitoring of works or the installation or removal of any temporary works reasonably necessary in consequence of the exercise by DLRL of any power under this Order; and

(d)any other work or thing rendered reasonably necessary in consequence of the exercise by DLRL of any such power;

within a reasonable time of being notified by the specified undertaker that it has incurred such expenses.

32.  There shall be deducted from any sum payable under paragraph 31 the value of any apparatus removed under the provisions of this Schedule, that value being calculated after removal.

33.  If in pursuance of the provisions of this Schedule—

(a)alternative apparatus of better type, or greater capacity or of greater dimensions is placed in substitution for existing apparatus of worse type, of smaller capacity or of smaller dimensions, except where this has been solely due to using the nearest currently available type; or

(b)apparatus (whether existing apparatus or alternative apparatus) is placed at a depth greater than the depth at which the existing apparatus was situated;

and the placing of apparatus of that type or capacity or of those dimensions, or the placing of apparatus at that depth, as the case may be, is not agreed by DLRL or, in default of agreement, is not determined by arbitration to be necessary having regard, among other things, to the nature of the authorised works, then, if such placing involves cost in the construction of works under paragraphs 9 to 11 exceeding that which would have been involved if the apparatus placed had been of the existing type, capacity or dimensions, or at the existing depth, as the case may be, the amount which apart from this paragraph would be payable to the specified undertaker by virtue of paragraph 31 shall be reduced by the amount of that excess.

34.  For the purposes of paragraph 33—

(a)an extension of apparatus to a length greater than the length of existing apparatus shall not be treated as a placing of apparatus of greater dimensions than those of the existing apparatus except in a case where the apparatus as so extended serves a purpose (either additional to or instead of that served by the existing apparatus) which was not served by the existing apparatus; and

(b)where the provision of a joint in a pipe or cable is agreed, or is determined to be necessary, the consequential provision of a jointing chamber or of a manhole shall be treated as if it also had been agreed or had been so determined.

35.  An amount which apart from this paragraph would be payable to the specified undertaker in respect of works by virtue of paragraphs 31 to 34 shall, if the works include the placing of apparatus provided in substitution for apparatus placed more than 7 years and 6 months earlier so as to confer on the specified undertaker any financial benefit by deferment of the time for renewal of the apparatus or of the system of which it forms part in the ordinary course, be reduced by the amount which represents that benefit as calculated in accordance with the Code of Practice entitled “Measures Necessary where Apparatus is Affected by Major Works (Diversionary Works)” and dated June 1992 and approved by the Secretary of State on 30th June 1992, as revised and re-issued from time to time.

36.  Paragraphs 31 to 35 shall not apply where the authorised works constitute major transport works for the purposes of Part III of the 1991 Act, but instead—

(a)the allowable costs of the construction of works under this Part of this Schedule shall be determined in accordance with section 85 of that Act (sharing the costs of necessary measures) and any regulations for the time being having effect under that section; and

(b)the allowable costs shall be borne by DLRL and the specified undertaker in such proportions as may be prescribed by any such regulations.

37.  In any case where work is carried out by DLRL pursuant to paragraphs 13 to 15 and, if such work had been carried out by the specified undertaker, the repayment made to the specified undertaker under paragraph 31 would fall to be reduced pursuant to paragraphs 33 to 35, the specified undertaker shall pay to DLRL such sum as represents the amount of that reduction.

Indemnity

38.  If by reason or in consequence of the construction, maintenance or failure of any of the authorised works, including any works carried out by DLRL pursuant to paragraph 13 or protective works required by a condition imposed under paragraph 22(a) or required under paragraph 24(b), or any subsidence resulting from any of those works, any damage shall be caused to any apparatus (other than apparatus the repair of which is not reasonably necessary in view of its intended removal for the purposes of those works) or other property of the specified undertaker, or there is any interruption in any service provided by the specified undertaker, DLRL shall repay the cost reasonably incurred by the specified undertaker in making good such damage, or restoring the supply, and shall—

(a)make reasonable compensation to the specified undertaker for any loss sustained by it; and

(b)indemnify the specified undertaker against all claims, demands, proceedings, costs, damages and expenses which may be made or taken against or recovered from, or incurred by, the specified undertaker;

by reason or in consequence of any such damage or interruption; and the fact that any act or thing may have been done by the specified undertaker on behalf of DLRL or in accordance with plans approved by the specified undertaker or in accordance with any requirement of the specified undertaker or under its supervision shall not, subject to paragraph 39, excuse DLRL from any liability under the provisions of this paragraph.

39.  Nothing in paragraph 38 shall impose any liability on DLRL with respect to any damage or interruption to the extent that such damage or interruption is attributable to the neglect or default of the specified undertaker, its officers, servants, contractors or other agents.

40.  The specified undertaker shall give to DLRL reasonable notice of any claim or demand as aforesaid and no settlement or compromise thereof shall be made without the prior consent of DLRL which shall not be unreasonably withheld.

Exercise of protective and survey powers

41.  DLRL shall, so far as is reasonably practicable, so exercise the powers conferred by article 20 of this Order as not to obstruct or render less convenient the access to any apparatus.

42.  DLRL shall not, in the exercise of the powers of section 11(3) of the 1965 Act, as applied by this Order, or of article 22 of this Order, make any trial holes which interfere with any apparatus without the consent of the specified undertaker (which shall not be unreasonably withheld).

Arbitration

43.  Any difference arising between DLRL and a specified undertaker under this Schedule (other than a difference as to its meaning or construction) shall be determined by arbitration in accordance with article 54 of this Order.

Transfer of powers

44.  DLRL shall give notice to every specified undertaker if any of the powers of DLRL under this Order are transferred to another person in accordance with article 46 of this Order and any such notice shall be given within 14 days of any such transfer becoming effective and shall describe or give (as appropriate)—

(a)the nature of the functions to be transferred;

(b)the extent of that transfer;

(c)the geographical area to which the transfer relates;

(d)the name and address of the transferee; and

(e)the effective date of the transfer.

45.  The obligation to give notice under paragraph 44 to a successor in title to a specified undertaker named in paragraph 1 shall only apply to the extent that DLRL has been informed by notice in writing by that named undertaker, or by a successor in title to that named undertaker, as the case may be, of the name and address of that successor in title.

Notices

46.  Any notice in writing to be given by DLRL to a specified undertaker under this Schedule shall be deemed effectively given if sent by recorded delivery or by registered letter addressed to the registered office of that specified undertaker.

(2) For the purposes of the surveys DLRL shall—

(a)on being given reasonable notice (save in case of emergency, when immediate access shall be afforded) afford reasonable facilities to the engineer for access to the site of the specified works and to any land and existing works of DLRL which may provide support for the dock area as will or may be affected by the specified works; and

(b)supply the engineer as soon as reasonably practicable with all such information as he may reasonably require with regard to such existing works of DLRL and to the specified works or the method of construction thereof.

(3) The reasonable costs of the surveys shall include the costs of any dewatering or reduction of the water level of any part of the dock area (where reasonably required) which may be effected to facilitate the carrying out of the surveys and the provisions of this schedule shall apply with all necessary modifications to any such dewatering or reduction in the water level as though the same were specified works.

(4) Copies of the surveys shall be provided to both the Board and DLRL.

8.  (1)  DLRL shall before commencing construction of any specified work including any temporary works supply to the Board proper and sufficient plans of that work and such further particulars available to it as the Board may within 14 days of the submission of the plans reasonably require for the approval of the engineer and shall not commence such construction of any specified work until plans of that work have been approved in writing by the engineer or settled by arbitration.

(2) The approval of the engineer under sub-paragraph (1) shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed, and if within 56 days after such plans (including any other particulars reasonably required under sub-paragraph (1)) have been supplied to the Board the engineer has not intimated his disapproval of those plans and the grounds of his disapproval he shall be deemed to have approved the plans as submitted.

(3) When signifying his approval of the plans the engineer may specify—

(a)any protective work (whether temporary or permanent) which is reasonably necessary to be carried out before the commencement of any specified work to prevent detriment; and

(b)such other requirements as may be reasonably necessary to prevent detriment;

and such protective work shall be constructed by the Board or (if the Board so desires) by DLRL with all reasonable dispatch and DLRL shall not commence the construction of any specified work until the engineer has notified DLRL that the protective work has been completed to his reasonable satisfaction.

9.  Without prejudice to its obligations under the foregoing provisions of this Schedule DLRL shall consult the Board on—

(a)the design and appearance of the specified works, including the materials to be used for their construction; and

(a)with all reasonable dispatch in accordance with the plans approved or deemed to have been approved or settled as aforesaid and with any requirements made under paragraph 8(3)(a);

(b)under the supervision (if given) and, in the case of any specified work which directly and physically affects a dock area, to the reasonable satisfaction of the engineer;

(c)in such manner as to cause as little detriment as is reasonably practicable;

(d)in such manner as to cause as little inconvenience as is reasonably practicable to the Board, its officers and agents and all other persons lawfully using a dock area.

(2) Nothing in this Order shall authorise DLRL to make or maintain any permanent works in or over a dock area so as to impede or prevent (whether by reducing the headroom or depth of water available for vessels, or the width of a dock area or otherwise) the passage of any vessel such as would have been capable of navigating a dock area on 29th June 2004.

(3) Following the completion of the construction of the specified work DLRL shall restore a dock area to a condition no less satisfactory than its condition immediately prior to the commencement of that work.

13.  (1)  Any pile, stump or other obstruction which becomes exposed in consequence of a specified work shall be removed by DLRL or, if it is not reasonably practicable to remove it, shall be cut off at such level below the bed of a dock area as the Board may direct.

14.  DLRL shall not in the course of constructing any specified work or protective work or otherwise in connection therewith do or permit anything which may result in the pollution of a dock area or the deposit of materials therein and shall take such steps as the engineer may reasonably require to avoid or make good any breach of its obligations under this paragraph; but this provision shall not prevent DLRL from carrying out works within a dock area.

15.  (1)  DLRL shall at all times on being given reasonable notice allow reasonable facilities to the engineer for access to any specified work during its construction; but such facilities for access shall be subject to DLRL’s reasonable requirements for ensuring the safety of the railway and of the engineer and other persons working on the railway.

(2) DLRL shall supply the engineer with all such information as he may reasonably require with regard to any specified work or the method of constructing it.

(2) If the cost of maintaining, working or renewing a dock area is reduced in consequence of any such alterations or additions a capitalised sum representing such saving shall be set off against any sum payable by DLRL to the Board under this paragraph.

17.  (1)  DLRL shall upon completion of any part of any permanent specified work remove as soon as practicable any temporary works and materials for temporary works constructed or placed in, on, over or under a dock area in connection with that part of the work.

(2) All temporary works shall be removed to the reasonable satisfaction of the engineer; and in the construction, maintenance and removal of such works DLRL shall not cause unavoidable detriment.

18.  If at any time after the completion of a specified work, not being a work vested in the Board, the Board gives notice to DLRL informing it that the state of maintenance of the work appears to be such that the work is causing or likely to cause detriment, DLRL shall, on receipt of such notice, take such steps as may be reasonably necessary to put the work in such state of maintenance as not to cause such detriment.

19.  Any additional expenses which the Board may reasonably incur in altering, reconstructing or maintaining a dock area under any powers existing at the making of this Order by reason of the existence of a specified work shall, provided that 56 days' previous notice of the commencement of such alteration, reconstruction or maintenance has been given to DLRL, be repaid by DLRL to the Board.

20.  DLRL shall repay to the Board all fees, costs, charges and expenses reasonably incurred by the Board—

(a)in constructing any protective works under the provisions of paragraph 8(3)(a) including, in respect of any permanent protective works, a capitalised sum representing the cost of maintaining and renewing those works;

(b)in respect of the approval by the engineer of plans submitted by DLRL and the supervision by him of the construction or repair of any specified work and any protective work;

(c)in respect of the employment during the period of the initial construction of any specified work or protective work of any inspectors, watchmen and other persons whom it shall be reasonably necessary to appoint for inspecting, watching and lighting any dock area and for preventing, so far as may be reasonably practicable, interference, obstruction, danger or accident arising from the construction or failure of the specified work or any protective work; and

(d)in bringing the specified work or any protective work to the notice of users of a dock area.

21.  (1)  If any detriment shall be caused by the construction or failure of the specified work or the protective works, DLRL (if so required by the Board) shall make good such detriment and shall pay to the Board all reasonable expenses to which the Board may be put, and compensation for any loss which the Board may sustain, in making good or otherwise by reason of the detriment.

(2) DLRL shall be responsible for and make good to the Board all costs, charges, damages, expenses and losses not otherwise provided for in this Schedule which may be occasioned to or reasonably incurred by the Board—

(a)by reason of the construction of any specified work or a protective work or the failure thereof; or

(b)by reason of any act or omission of DLRL or of any person in its employ or of its contractors or others whilst engaged upon the construction of any specified work or of a protective work;

and subject to sub-paragraph (4) DLRL shall effectively indemnify and hold harmless the Board from and against all claims and demands arising out of any of the matters referred to in paragraphs (a) and (b).

(3) The fact that any act or thing may have been done by the Board on behalf of DLRL or in accordance with plans approved by the engineer or in accordance with any requirement of the engineer or under his supervision or in accordance with any directions or awards of an arbitrator shall not (if it was done without negligence on the part of the Board or of any person in its employ or of its contractors or agents) excuse DLRL from any liability under the provisions of this paragraph.

(4) The Board shall give DLRL reasonable notice of any such claim or demand as aforesaid and no settlement or compromise of such a claim or demand shall be made without the prior consent of DLRL.

22.  Where under any provision of this Schedule the Board or DLRL (as the case may be) is entitled to a capitalised sum, it shall provide such details of the formula by which the sum is calculated as may reasonably be requested by the party required to pay the sum.

23.  Except as provided by this Order, nothing in this Order shall prejudice or derogate from the estates, rights, interests, privileges, liberties or franchises of the Board or alter or diminish any power, authority or jurisdiction vested in the Board at the commencement of this Order.
