(a)any interest in land; or

(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) “relevant land” means the land acquired from the person concerned or any other land with which that person 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 of certain properties

28.  (1)  This article shall apply instead of section 8(1) of the 1965 Act (as applied by article 18 (application of Part 1 of the Compulsory Purchase Act 1965)) 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 manufactory 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 the Company a counter-notice objecting to the sale of the land subject to the notice to treat which states that the owner 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 the Company 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—

(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 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 the Company is authorised to acquire compulsorily under this Order.

(8) If the Company 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 the Company 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, the Company 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 the owner 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 manufactory or of land consisting of a house with a park or garden, the Company shall pay the owner compensation for any loss sustained by the owner due to the severance of that part in addition to the value of the interest acquired.

Extinction or suspension of private rights of way

29.  (1)  All private rights of way over land subject to compulsory acquisition under this Order shall be extinguished—

(a)as from the date of acquisition of the land by the Company, whether compulsorily or by agreement; or

(b)on the date of entry on the land by the Company under section 11(1) of the 1965 Act,

whichever is sooner.

(2) All private rights of way over land owned by the Company which is within the permanent limits and is required for the purposes of this Order, shall be extinguished on the appropriation of the land for any of those purposes by the Company.

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

(4) 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.

(5) This article does not apply in relation to any right of way to which section 271 or 272 of the 1990 Act (extinguishment of rights of statutory undertakers, etc.) or paragraph 2 of Schedule 8 (provisions relating to statutory undertakers, etc.) applies.

Time limit for exercise of powers of acquisition

30.  (1)  After the end of the period of 5 years beginning with the day on which this Order comes into force—

(a)no notice to treat shall be served under Part 1 of the 1965 Act, as applied to the acquisition of land by article 18 (application of Part 1 of the Compulsory Purchase Act 1965); and

(b)no declaration shall be executed under section 4 of the Compulsory Purchase (Vesting Declarations) Act 1981, as applied by article 19 (application of the Compulsory Purchase (Vesting Declarations) Act 1981).

(2) The power conferred by article 24 (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 the Company from remaining in possession of land in accordance with article 24 after the end of that period, if the land was entered and possession of it was taken before the end of that period.

SCHEDULE 5MODIFICATION 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(20) 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”.

Application 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 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 the owner, 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 Upper Tribunal (“the tribunal”); and

(b)before the tribunal has determined that question the tribunal is satisfied that the person has an interest in the whole of the relevant land and is able and willing to sell that interest 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 London Underground (Victoria Station Upgrade) Order 2009(21) (“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 6 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 has served notice to treat in respect of any right, it has 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.

Removal of apparatus

8.  Paragraphs 9 to 12 apply where—

(b)afterwards for the use, maintenance and renewal of such apparatus,

and, if the Company is unable to obtain those rights and facilities, the specified undertaker shall, on receipt of a written notice to that effect from the Company, use its best endeavours to obtain the necessary rights and facilities.

Removal of apparatus and construction of alternative apparatus by the Company

13.  Paragraphs 14 to 16 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 the Company for the purpose of its undertaking.

14.  If the Company 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 the Company 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 the Company 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.

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

16.  Nothing in paragraph 14 shall authorise the Company 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 600 millimetres (measured in any direction) of the apparatus.

Facilities and rights for alternative apparatus

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

18.  In determining the terms and conditions mentioned in paragraph 17 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 the Company 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.

19.  If the facilities and rights to be afforded by the Company in respect of any alternative apparatus under paragraph 17 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 the Company by or to the specified undertaker in that respect as shall appear to the abritrator to be reasonable having regard to all the circumstances of the case.

Retained apparatus: protection and plan approval

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

21.  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 20 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;

(d)the position of all sewers within 15 metres of the specified work or upon which the specified work will impose a load; and

(e)by way of detailed drawings, every alteration proposed to be made to any such sewer.

22.  The Company shall not commence the construction or renewal of any specified work to which paragraph 21 applies until the specified undertaker has given written approval of the plans so submitted.

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

(a)may be given subject to reasonable conditions for any purpose mentioned in paragraph 24;

(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.

24.  In relation to a work to which paragraph 21 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.

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

(a)the approved plans (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 the Company 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 to it,

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

26.  If within 42 days after the submission to it of any plans under paragraph 20, in consequence of the works proposed by the Company the specified undertaker reasonably requires the removal of any apparatus and gives written notice to the Company 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.

27.  Nothing in paragraph 20 or 26 shall preclude the Company 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 in place of the plan previously submitted, in which case the provisions of those paragraphs shall apply to, and in respect of, such new plan except that the reference in paragraph 26 to 42 days shall be treated as a reference to 21 days.

28.  The Company shall not be required to comply with paragraph 20 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 afterwards, and shall comply with paragraph 25 so far as reasonably practicable in the circumstances.

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

Co-operation

30.  Where in consequence of the proposed construction of any of the authorised works, the Company 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 25, the Company 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 the Company for that purpose.

Access

31.  If in consequence of the exercise of the powers conferred by this Order the access to any apparatus is materially obstructed the Company 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

32.  Subject to the provisions of the following paragraphs of this Schedule, the Company 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 the Company of any power under this Order;

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

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

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

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

34.  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 the Company 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 12 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 32 shall be reduced by the amount of that excess.

35.  For the purposes of paragraph 34—

(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.

36.  An amount which apart from this paragraph would be payable to the specified undertaker in respect of works by virtue of paragraphs 32 to 35 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.

37.  In any case where work is carried out by the Company pursuant to paragraphs 14 to 16 and, if such work had been carried out by the specified undertaker, the repayment made to the specified undertaker under paragraph 32 would fall to be reduced pursuant to paragraphs 34 to 36, the specified undertaker shall pay to the Company 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 the Company pursuant to paragraph 14 or protective works required by a condition imposed under paragraph 23(a) or required under paragraph 25(b), or any subsidence resulting from any of those works, any damage is 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, the Company 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 the Company 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 the Company from any liability under the provisions of this paragraph.

39.  Nothing in paragraph 38 shall impose any liability on the Company 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 the Company reasonable notice of any claim or demand under the provisions of paragraph 38 and no settlement or compromise of it shall be made without the prior consent of the Company which shall not be unreasonably withheld.

Exercise of safeguarding and survey powers

41.  The Company shall, so far as is reasonably practicable, so exercise the powers conferred by article 14 (protective works to buildings) so as not to obstruct or render less convenient the access to any apparatus.

42.  The Company shall not, in the exercise of the powers conferred by section 11(3) of the 1965 Act, as applied by this Order, or by article 16 (power to survey and investigate land, etc.), 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 the Company and a specified undertaker under this Schedule (other than a difference as to its meaning or construction) shall be determined by arbitration in the manner provided by article 42 (arbitration) and in determining any difference under this Schedule the arbitrator may, if the arbitrator thinks fit, require the Company to execute any temporary or other works so as to avoid, so far as may be reasonably practicable, interference with the use of any apparatus.

Notices

44.  Any notice in writing to be given by the Company 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.
