(a)in which the store is situated; and

(b)which are occupied by the person storing the explosives.

(3) Subject to paragraph 8, any reference in this Schedule to “store” is to the store mentioned in regulation 27(1) in relation to which separation distances are required by that provision to be maintained.

(4) Any reference in this Schedule to a quantity of explosives shown in column 1 of a Table is to—

(a)a quantity in a store; or

(5) Any reference in this Schedule to a building is to a building in or at which people are, or are likely to be, present either all the time or from time to time.

(6) For the purposes of this Schedule, where explosives of different hazard types are in one store, the explosives must be treated as belonging to the hazard type which would require the greatest separation distance for the total quantity of those explosives and the separation distance must be determined in relation to that total quantity.

(7) For the purposes of this Schedule, the radius for a reference zone applying in a particular case is the number in the entry in column 2 of the relevant Supplementary Table corresponding to the quantity of explosives shown in column 1 of the Supplementary Table.

(8) For the purposes of this Schedule, any reference to “bridleway”, “footpath”, “footway” or “waterway” does not include, respectively, a bridleway, footpath, footway used, or waterway navigated, by no more than, ordinarily, 20 persons in any 24 hour period.

(9) For the purposes of this Schedule, an area of low population density is an area where the maximum number of dwellings in a reference zone is equal to or less than the number specified in the entry in column 3 of the relevant Supplementary Table.

(10) Save as stated in paragraph (c) of the definition of “protected place of Class D” and subject to sub-paragraph (2), the references to the places referred to in the definitions from “protected place of Class A” to the definition of “protected place of Class E” are references to such places whether within a site or outside it.

2.  Where the storage is—

(a)of hazard type 1 explosive in a brick-built mounded store, Table 1;

(b)of hazard type 1 explosive in a brick-built unmounded store, Table 2;

(c)of hazard type 1 explosive in a metal-built mounded store, Table 3;

(d)of hazard type 1 explosive in a metal-built unmounded store with no detonator annex attached, Table 4;

(e)of hazard type 1 explosive in a metal-built unmounded store with a detonator annex attached, Table 5;

(f)of hazard type 2 explosive, some or all items being of more than 0.7 kg net mass in a mounded store, Table 6;

(g)of hazard type 2 explosive, some or all items being of more than 0.7 kg net mass in an unmounded store, Table 7;

(h)of hazard type 2 explosive, every item being of 0.7 kg net mass or less in a mounded store, Table 8;

(i)of hazard type 2 explosive every item being of 0.7 kg net mass or less in an unmounded store, Table 9

(j)of hazard type 3 explosive, Table 10;

(k)of hazard type 4 explosive, Table 11,

applies, and any reference in this Schedule to a relevant Table is a reference to the Table which applies by virtue of this paragraph.

3.  For each of Table 1, 3, 4 or 5 where that Table applies, a Supplementary Table for determining the separation distance between a store and a dwelling in an area of low population density applies as follows—

(a)for Table 1, Supplementary Table 1A;

(b)for Table 3, Supplementary Table 3A;

(c)for Table 4, Supplementary Table 4A; and

(d)for Table 5, Supplementary Table 5A,

and any reference in this Schedule to a relevant Supplementary Table is a reference to the Supplementary Table which applies by virtue of this paragraph.

4.—(1) Paragraph 5 is subject to paragraph 6.

(2) Paragraphs 5 and 6 are subject to sub-paragraph (b) of paragraph 7 for determining the quantity of explosives to be applied —

(a)for determining the relevant separation distance for the purposes of paragraphs 5 and 6, and

(b)for paragraph 1(7) in relation to the radius for a reference zone,

in cases where sub-paragraph (b) of paragraph 7 is being relied on.

5.  The distance between a store and any protected place of Class A, B, C, D, E, F or H is the distance specified in the entry in the column for that Class of the relevant Table corresponding to the quantity of explosives shown in column 1 of the Table.

6.  Where—

(a)Table 1, 3, 4 or 5 applies; and

(b)the number of dwellings in the reference zone is equal to or less than the number specified in the entry in column 3 of the relevant Supplementary Table corresponding to the quantity of explosives shown in column 1 of the Supplementary Table,

the distance between a store and any dwelling is the distance (if any) specified in the corresponding entry in column 4 of the Supplementary Table.

7.  The distance between a store and any protected place of Class G is either—

(a)the distance specified in the entry in the column for that Class of the relevant Table corresponding to the quantity of explosives shown in column 1 of the Table; or

(b)any lesser distance, provided that the quantity of explosives for determining the relevant separation distance for the purposes of paragraphs 5 and 6, and for paragraph 1(7) in relation to the radius for a reference zone, is the sum total of the quantity of explosives in the store and the protected place of Class G for which there is to be any lesser distance.

8.  For cases where sub-paragraph (b) of paragraph 7 is being relied on, paragraph 1(6) has effect as if the reference to “one store” were a reference to the store and the protected place of Class G to which sub-paragraph (b) of paragraph 7 applies.
