The Network Rail (Thameslink 2000) Order 2006

Made

22nd November 2006

Coming into force

13th December 2006

An application was made on 19th November 1997 (“the 1997 Application”) to the Secretary of State, in accordance with the Transport and Works (Applications and Objections Procedure) Rules 1992(1), for an Order under sections 1, 3 and 5 of the Transport and Works Act 1992(2), (“the 1992 Act”) to authorise certain works (“the 1997 draft Order”).

A further application was made on 23rd September 1999 (“the 1999 Application”) to the Secretary of State, in accordance with those Rules, for a further Order (“the 1999 draft Order”) under those sections of the 1992 Act to authorise further works which replaced in part works proposed to be authorised by the 1997 draft Order.

The Secretary of State caused an inquiry to be held for the purposes of the 1997 Application and the 1999 Application pursuant to section 11 of the 1992 Act.

At the request of the Secretary of State, a further draft Order consolidating the proposals comprised in the 1999 Order and, so far as not replaced by those proposals, the proposals comprised in the 1997 Order was prepared.

The Secretary of State, having considered the objections made and not withdrawn and the reports of the persons who held the inquiry, has determined to make an Order giving effect to the proposals comprised in the 1997 Application and the 1999 Application with modifications which in his opinion do not make any substantial change in those proposals.

Notice of the Secretary of State’s determination was published in the London Gazette on 24th October 2006.

The Secretary of State is satisfied that the provision of an alternative right of way for each of the streets mentioned in Part 2 of Schedule 4 to this Order is not required.

Accordingly, the Secretary of State, in exercise of the powers conferred on him by sections 1, 3 and 5 of, and paragraphs 1 to 5, 7, 8, 10, 11, 16 and 17 of Schedule 1 to, the 1992 Act hereby makes the following Order:—

(b)any enhancement of the value of any interest in land by reason of any building erected, works executed or improvement or alteration made on relevant land,

if the tribunal is satisfied that the creation of the interest, the erection of the building, the execution of the works or the making of the improvement or alteration was not reasonably necessary and was undertaken with a view to obtaining compensation or increased compensation.

(2) In paragraph (1) above “relevant land” means the land acquired from the person concerned or any other land with which he is, or was at the time when the building was erected, the works executed or the improvement or alteration made, directly or indirectly concerned.

Supplementary

Acquisition of part only of certain properties

31.  (1)  This article shall apply instead of section 8(1) of the 1965 Act (as applied by article 25 (application of Part 1 of the Compulsory Purchase Act 1965(26)) in any case where—

(a)a notice to treat is served on a person (“the owner”) under the 1965 Act (as so applied) in respect of land forming only part of a house, building or factory or of land consisting of a house with a park or garden (“the land subject to the notice to treat”); and

(b)a copy of this article is served on the owner with the notice to treat.

(2) In such a case, the owner may, within the period of 21 days beginning with the day on which the notice was served, serve on Network Rail a counter-notice objecting to the sale of the land subject to the notice to treat and stating that he is willing and able to sell the whole (“the land subject to the counter-notice”).

(3) If no such counter-notice is served within that period, the owner shall be required to sell the land subject to the notice to treat.

(4) If such a counter-notice is served within that period, the question whether the owner shall be required to sell only the land subject to the notice to treat shall, unless Network Rail agrees to take the land subject to the counter-notice, be referred to the tribunal.

(5) If on such a reference the tribunal determine that the land subject to the notice to treat can be taken—

(b)in the case of part of land consisting of a house with a park or garden, without material detriment to the remainder of the land subject to the counter-notice and without seriously affecting the amenity and convenience of the house,

the owner shall be required to sell the land subject to the notice to treat.

(6) If on such a reference the tribunal determine that only part of the land subject to the notice to treat can be taken—

(a)without material detriment to the remainder of the land subject to the counter-notice; or

(b)in the case of part of land consisting of a house with a park or garden, without material detriment to the remainder of the land subject to the counter-notice and without seriously affecting the amenity and convenience of the house,

the notice to treat shall be deemed to be a notice to treat for that part.

(7) If on such a reference the tribunal determine that—

(a)the land subject to the notice to treat cannot be taken without material detriment to the remainder of the land subject to the counter-notice; but

(b)the material detriment is confined to a part of the land subject to the counter-notice,

the notice to treat shall be deemed to be a notice to treat for the land to which the material detriment is confined in addition to the land already subject to the notice, whether or not the additional land is land which Network Rail is authorised to acquire compulsorily under this Order.

(8) If Network Rail agrees to take the land subject to the counter-notice, or if the tribunal determine that—

(a)none of the land subject to the notice to treat can be taken without material detriment to the remainder of the land subject to the counter-notice or, as the case may be, without material detriment to the remainder of the land subject to the counter-notice and without seriously affecting the amenity and convenience of the house; and

(b)the material detriment is not confined to a part of the land subject to the counter-notice,

the notice to treat shall be deemed to be a notice to treat for the land subject to the counter-notice whether or not the whole of that land is land which Network Rail is authorised to acquire compulsorily under this Order.

(9) In any case where by virtue of a determination by the tribunal under this article a notice to treat is deemed to be a notice to treat for less land or more land than that specified in the notice, Network Rail may, within the period of 6 weeks beginning with the day on which the determination is made, withdraw the notice to treat; and if it does so shall pay to the owner compensation for any loss or expense occasioned to him by the giving and withdrawal of the notice, to be determined in case of dispute by the tribunal.

(10) Where the owner is required under this article to sell only part of a house, building or factory or of land consisting of a house with a park or garden, Network Rail shall pay him compensation for any loss sustained by him due to the severance of that part in addition to the value of the interest acquired.

Extinction or suspension of private rights of way

32.  (1)  All private rights of way over land held and used by Network Rail for the purposes of the authorised works or subject to compulsory acquisition under this Order shall be extinguished—

(a)as from the use by Network Rail for the purposes of the authorised works of the land held by Network Rail;

(b)as from the acquisition of the land by Network Rail, whether compulsorily or by agreement; or

(c)on the entry on the land by Network Rail under section 11(1) of the 1965 Act,

whichever is sooner.

(2) All private rights of way over land of which Network Rail takes temporary possession under this Order shall be suspended and unenforceable for as long as Network Rail remains in lawful possession of the land.

(3) Any person who suffers loss by the extinguishment or suspension of any private right of way under this article shall be entitled to compensation to be determined, in case of dispute, under Part 1 of the 1961 Act.

(4) This article does not apply in relation to any right of way to which section 271 or 272 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990(27) (extinguishment of rights of statutory undertakers etc.) or paragraph 2 of Schedule 9 (provisions relating to statutory undertakers etc.) to this Order applies.

(5) Paragraphs (1) and (2) shall have effect subject to any agreement made (whether before or after this Order comes into force) between Network Rail and the person entitled to the private right of way.

(6) Paragraph (1) shall have effect subject to any notice given by Network Rail that that paragraph shall not apply to any right of way specified in the notice where the notice is given before whichever is the soonest of the events specified in sub-paragraph (a), (b) or (c) of that paragraph.

(7) Paragraph (2) shall have effect subject to any notice given by Network Rail at any time before or after possession is taken that that paragraph shall not apply to any right of way specified in the notice or shall only apply to the right of way to the extent specified in the notice.

Time limit for exercise of powers of acquisition

33.  (1)  No notice to treat shall be served under Part 1 of the 1965 Act, as applied to the acquisition of land under article 25 (application of Part 1 of the Compulsory Purchase Act 1965) after the end of the period of 5 years beginning with the day on which this Order comes into force.

(2) The power conferred by article 29 (temporary use of land for construction of works) to enter upon and take temporary possession of land shall cease at the end of the period mentioned in paragraph (1); but this paragraph shall not prevent Network Rail remaining in possession of land in accordance with article 29 after the end of that period, if the land was entered and possession of it was taken before the end of that period.

Article 26

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 1973 Act 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 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.

(2) Without prejudice to the generality of sub-paragraph (1), Part 1 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 (which relates to cases in which a vendor cannot be required to sell part only of a building or garden) there shall be substituted the following—

(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 Network Rail (Thameslink 2000) Order 2006(36) (“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.

SCHEDULE 9PROVISIONS RELATING TO STATUTORY UNDERTAKERS ETC.

Apparatus of statutory undertakers etc. on land acquired

1.  (1)  Sections 271 to 274 of the 1990 Act (power to extinguish rights of statutory undertakers etc. and power of statutory undertakers etc. to remove or re-site apparatus) shall apply in relation to any land acquired or appropriated by Network Rail under this Order subject to the following provisions of this paragraph; and all such other provisions of that Act as apply for the purposes of those provisions (including sections 275 to 278, which contain provisions consequential on the extinguishment of any rights under sections 271 and 272, and sections 279(2) to (4), 280 and 282, which provide for the payment of compensation) shall have effect accordingly.

(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 Network Rail 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 Network Rail 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.

(5) The provisions of the 1990 Act mentioned in sub-paragraph (1) , as applied by that sub-paragraph, shall not have effect in relation to apparatus as respects which paragraph 2 or Part 3 of the Street Works Act applies.

(6) In this paragraph—

“the 1990 Act” means the Town and Country Planning Act 1990(38); and

“public utility undertakers” has the same meaning as in the Highways Act 1980(39).

Apparatus of statutory undertakers etc. in stopped up streets

2.  (1)  Where a street is stopped up under article 15 (permanent stopping up of streets) any statutory utility whose apparatus is under, in, upon, over, along or across the street shall have the same powers and rights in respect of that apparatus, subject to the provisions of this paragraph, as if this Order had not been made.

(2) Where a street is stopped up under article 15 (permanent stopping up of streets) any statutory utility whose apparatus is under, in, upon, over, along or across the street may and, if reasonably requested so to do by Network Rail, shall—

(a)remove the apparatus and place it or other apparatus provided in substitution for it in such other position as the utility may reasonably determine and have power to place it, or

(b)provide other apparatus in substitution for the existing apparatus and place it in such position as aforesaid.

(3) Subject to the following provisions of this paragraph, Network Rail shall pay to any statutory utility an amount equal to the cost reasonably incurred by the utility in or in connection with—

(a)the execution of relocation works required in consequence of the stopping up of the street, and

(b)the doing of any other work or thing rendered necessary by the execution of relocation works.

(4) If in the course of the execution of relocation works under sub-paragraph (2)—

(a)apparatus of better type, of 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 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 Network Rail or, in default of agreement, is not determined by arbitration to be necessary, 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 paragraph would be payable to the statutory utility by virtue of sub-paragraph (3) shall be reduced by the amount of that excess.

(5) For the purposes of sub-paragraph (4)—

(a)to safeguard any drainage work against damage, or

(b)to secure that its efficiency for flood defence purposes is not impaired and that the risk of flooding is not otherwise increased,

by reason of any specified work.

60.  (1)  Subject to sub-paragraph (2), any specified work, and all protective works required by the Agency under paragraph 59, shall be constructed—

(a)within 3 years of the Agency’s approval under paragraph 58 or such longer period as the Agency may consent to at the time of the approval or upon an application by Network Rail thereafter (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld);

(b)in accordance with the plans approved or deemed to have been approved or settled under this Part of this Schedule; and

(c)to the reasonable satisfaction of the Agency,

and the Agency shall be entitled by its officer to watch and inspect the construction of such works.

(3) Network Rail shall give to the Agency not less than 14 days' notice in writing of its intention to commence construction of any specified work and notice in writing of its completion not later than 7 days after the date on which it is brought into use.

(4) If any part of a specified work or any protective work required by the Agency is constructed otherwise than in accordance with the requirements of this Part of this Schedule, the Agency may by notice in writing require Network Rail at Network Rail’s own expense to comply with the requirements of this Part of this Schedule or (if Network Rail so elects and the Agency in writing consents, such consent not to be unreasonably withheld) to remove, alter or pull down the work and, where removal is required, to restore the site to its former condition to such extent and within such limits as the Agency reasonably requires.

(5) Subject to sub-paragraph (6) and paragraph 64, if within a reasonable period, being not less than 28 days from the date when a notice under sub-paragraph (4) is served upon Network Rail, it has failed to begin taking steps to comply with the requirements of the notice and thereafter to make reasonably expeditious progress towards their implementation, the Agency may execute the works specified in the notice and any expenditure incurred by it in so doing shall be recoverable from Network Rail.

(6) In the event of any dispute as to whether sub-paragraph (4) is properly applicable to any work in respect of which notice has been served under that sub-paragraph, or as to the reasonableness of any requirement of such a notice, the Agency shall not except in emergency exercise the powers conferred by sub-paragraph (5) until the dispute has been finally determined.

61.  (1)  Subject to the provisions of this Part of this Schedule and except to the extent that the Agency or another person is liable to maintain any such work and is not precluded by the exercise of the powers of the Order from so doing, Network Rail shall from the commencement of the construction of the specified works maintain in good repair and condition and free from obstruction any drainage work which is situated within the limits of deviation or on land held by Network Rail for the purposes of or in connection with the specified works, whether or not the drainage work is constructed under the powers of the Order or is already in existence.

(2) If any such drainage work which Network Rail is liable to maintain is not maintained to the reasonable satisfaction of the Agency, the Agency may by notice in writing require Network Rail to repair and restore the work, or any part thereof, or (if Network Rail so elects and the Agency in writing consents, such consent not to be unreasonably withheld), to remove the work and restore the site (including sea defences) to its former condition, to such extent and within such limits as the Agency reasonably requires.

(3) Subject to paragraph 64, if, within a reasonable period being not less than 28 days beginning with the date on which a notice in respect of any work is served under sub-paragraph (2) on Network Rail, Network Rail has failed to begin taking steps to comply with the reasonable requirements of the notice and has not thereafter made reasonably expeditious progress towards their implementation, the Agency may do what is necessary for such compliance and may recover any expenditure reasonably incurred by it in so doing from Network Rail.

(4) In the event of any dispute as to the reasonableness of any requirement of a notice served under sub-paragraph (2) , the Agency shall not except in a case of emergency exercise the powers of sub-paragraph (3) until the dispute has been finally determined.

62.  Subject to paragraph 64, if by reason of the construction of any specified work or of the failure of any such work the efficiency of any drainage work for flood defence purposes is impaired, or that work is otherwise damaged, such impairment or damage shall be made good by Network Rail to the reasonable satisfaction of the Agency and if Network Rail fails to do so, the Agency may make good the same and recover from Network Rail the expense reasonably incurred by it in so doing.

63.  (1)  Network Rail shall take all such measures as may be reasonably practicable to prevent any interruption of the free passage of fish in the fishery during the construction of any specified work.

(2) If by reason of—

(a)the construction of any specified work, or

(b)the failure of any such work,

damage to the fishery is caused, or the Agency has reason to expect that such damage may be caused, the Agency may serve notice on Network Rail 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) Subject to paragraph 64, 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 a fishery, Network Rail fails to take such steps as are described in sub-paragraph (2), the Agency may take those steps and may recover from Network Rail the expense reasonably incurred by it in doing so.

(4) Subject to paragraph 64, in any case where immediate action by the Agency is reasonably required in order to secure that the risk of damage to the fishery is avoided or reduced, the Agency may take such steps as are reasonable for the purpose, and may recover from Network Rail the reasonable cost of so doing provided that notice specifying those steps is served on Network Rail as soon as reasonably practicable after the Agency has taken, or commenced to take, the steps specified in the notice.

64.  Nothing in paragraphs 60(5), 61(3), 62, 63(3) and (4) shall authorise the Agency to execute works on or affecting an operational railway forming part of Network Rail’s network without the prior consent in writing of Network Rail such consent not to be unreasonably withheld.

65.  Network Rail 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—

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

66.  (1)  Without prejudice to the other provisions of this Part of this Schedule, Network Rail 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 or incurred by 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 or lowering of the water table in land adjoining the authorised 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 any groundwater,

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

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

67.  The fact that any work or thing has been executed or done by Network Rail 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 of an arbitrator, shall not relieve Network Rail from any liability under the provisions of this Part of this Schedule.

68.  For the purposes of section 5 of the Metropolis Management (Thames River Prevention of Floods) Amendment Act 1879(47) and Chapter 2 of Part 2 of the Water Resources Act 1991(48) (abstraction and impounding of water) and section 109 of that Act (as to structures in, over or under watercourses) as applying to the construction of any specified work, any consent or approval given or deemed to be given by the Agency under this Part of this Schedule with respect to such construction shall be deemed also to constitute a licence under that Chapter to obstruct or impede the flow of inland waters at that point by means of impounding works or, as the case may be, a consent or approval under section 109.

69.  Any dispute arising between Network Rail and the Agency under this Part of this Schedule shall, if the parties agree, be determined by arbitration under article 51 (arbitration), but shall otherwise be determined by the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs and the Secretary of State for Transport acting jointly on a reference to them by Network Rail or the Agency, after notice in writing by one to the other.
