Emergency powers

60.—(1) Subject to sub-paragraph (4), if by reason of the construction of any specified work or any other development authorised by this Order, or the failure of any such work, the efficiency or effectiveness of any drainage work or the conservation value of the aquatic habitat is impaired, or that drainage work is otherwise damaged, so as to require remedial action, such impairment or damage must be made good by TfL to the reasonable satisfaction of the Agency.

(2) If such impaired or damaged drainage work is not made good to the reasonable satisfaction of the Agency, the Agency may by notice in writing require TfL to restore it to its former standard of efficiency or where necessary to construct some other work in substitution for it.

(3) If, within a reasonable period being not less than 28 days beginning with the date on which a notice in respect of impaired or damaged drainage work is served under sub-paragraph (2) on TfL, TfL has failed to begin taking steps to comply with the requirements of the notice and has not thereafter made reasonably expeditious progress towards its implementation, the Agency may do what is necessary for such compliance and may recover any expenditure reasonably incurred by it in so doing from TfL.

(4) In the event of any dispute as to the reasonableness of any requirement of a notice served under sub-paragraph (2), the Agency must not except in a case of immediate foreseeable need exercise the powers conferred by sub-paragraph (3) until the dispute has been finally determined in accordance with paragraph 64.

(5) In any case where immediate action by the Agency is reasonably required in order to secure that the imminent flood risk or damage to the environment is avoided or reduced, the Agency may take such steps as are reasonable for the purpose and may recover from TfL the reasonable cost of so doing provided that the notice specifying those steps is served on TfL as soon as it is reasonably practicable after the Agency has taken or commence to take the steps specified in the notice.
