EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations are made in exercise of the powers in section 8(1) of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (c.16) in order to address failures of retained EU law to operate effectively and other deficiencies (in particular under paragraphs (a), (c) and (g) of section 8(2) of that Act) arising from the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. These Regulations make amendments to secondary legislation in the field of town and country planning and infrastructure planning. They amend the Town and Country Planning (London Spatial Development Strategy) Regulations 2000 (S.I. 2000/1491), the Town and Country Planning (Mayor of London) Order 2008 (S.I. 2008/580), the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012 (S.I, 2012/767), the Town and Country Planning (Development Management Procedure) (England) Order 2015 (S.I. 2015/595) and the Planning (Hazardous Substances) Regulations 2015 (S.I. 2015/627).

These Regulations: replace a number of references to EU Directives to references within the Control of Major Accident Hazards Regulations 2015 (regulations 2(a), 3(a), 4(b), 5 and 10); omit references to definitions and objectives sitting within the Directive (regulations 2(b), 3(b), 4(a) and (c) and 5); and insert definitions consequential on these amendments (regulation 7). These Regulations also amend references in the Planning (Hazardous Substances) Regulations 2015 so that references to retained EU Law apply correctly (regulations 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12).

An impact assessment has not been produced for this instrument as no, or no significant, impact on the private voluntary sector is foreseen. A copy of the Explanatory Memorandum is published alongside the Regulations on www.legislation.gov.uk
