(2) Where this article applies, the Secretary of State must give notice in writing (“the pause notice”) to the relevant local planning authority stating that the Secretary of State is considering exercising the power.

(a)it receives the release notice; or

(b)the Secretary of State makes a direction under section 77(1) of the Act in relation to the application (“the call-in direction”).

(5) Where the local planning authority has not satisfied a consultation and notification provision at the date it receives the pause notice—

(a)such provision continues to apply to the local planning authority whether or not the Secretary of State makes a call-in direction in relation to the prior approval application in question; and

(b)the local planning authority must inform the Secretary of State as soon as they have satisfied that provision.

(a)beginning with the day after the date on which the Secretary of State gives the pause notice; and

(b)ending on the day after the date on which the Secretary of State gives the release notice,

shall not be counted for the purpose of calculating any time period for decision under article 7.

(7) Where the Secretary of State makes a call-in direction in relation to a prior approval application the provisions of Schedule 2 (except a consultation and notification provision) apply to such an application as if the references to a local planning authority were to the Secretary of State.

(8) Where the Secretary of State makes a call-in direction in relation to a prior approval application any deemed prior approval provision shall have no effect in relation to such an application.
