Protective action

43.—(1) If any specified work or the exercise of any specified function—

(a)is constructed or carried out otherwise than in accordance with the requirements of this Part of this Schedule or with any condition in an approval given under paragraph 34(4); or

(b)during construction or carrying out gives rise to sedimentation, scouring, currents or wave action, which would be materially detrimental to traffic in, or the flow or regime of, the river Thames,

then the PLA may by notice in writing require TfL at TfL’s own expense to comply with the remedial requirements specified in the notice.

(2) The requirements that may be specified in a notice given under sub-paragraph (1) are—

(a)in the case of a specified work or specified function to which sub-paragraph (1)(a) applies, such requirements as may be specified in the notice for the purpose of giving effect to the requirements of—

(i)this Part of this Schedule; or

(ii)the condition that has been breached; or

(b)in any case within sub-paragraph (1)(b), such requirements as may be specified in the notice for the purpose of preventing, mitigating or making good the sedimentation, scouring, currents or wave action so far as required by the needs of traffic in, or the flow or regime of, the river Thames.

(3) If TfL does not comply with a notice under sub-paragraph (1), or is unable to do so then the PLA may in writing require TfL to—

(a)remove, alter or pull down the specified work, and where the specified work is removed to restore the site of that work (to such extent as the PLA reasonably requires) to its former condition; or

(b)take such other action as the PLA may reasonably specify for the purpose of remedying the non-compliance to which the notice relates.

(4) If a specified work gives rise to environmental impacts over and above those anticipated by any environmental document, TfL must, in compliance with its duties under any enactment, take such action as is necessary to prevent or mitigate those environmental impacts and in so doing must consult and seek to agree the necessary measures with the PLA.

(5) If the PLA becomes aware that any specified work is causing an environmental impact over and above those anticipated by any environmental document, the PLA must notify TfL of that environmental impact, the reasons why the PLA believes that the environmental impact is being caused by the specified work and of measures that the PLA reasonably believes are necessary to counter or mitigate that environmental impact. TfL must implement either the measures that the PLA has notified to TfL or such other measures as TfL believes are necessary to counter the environmental impact identified, giving reasons to the PLA as to why it has implemented such other measures.

(6) In this paragraph “environmental document” means—

(a)the environmental statement; and

(b)any other document containing environmental information provided by TfL to the PLA for the purposes of any approval under paragraph 34.
