Effect of dedication instruments

5.—(1) Subject to paragraph (3), a dedication instrument which has been executed in accordance with regulation 4 comes into force 6 months from its date of execution.

(2) A dedication instrument, when it has come into force in accordance with paragraph (1), has the effect of dedicating the land to which it relates for the purposes of Part I of the Act.

(3) A dedication instrument does not come into force unless it has, in accordance with paragraph (4), been lodged with the access authority in respect of the land to which it relates, or if there is more than one such access authority, with one of them.

(4) A dedication instrument is lodged with an access authority by sending or delivering the original to that authority so that it is received by the access authority within 1 month of its date of execution and any dedication instrument received by an access authority after the expiry of that period is of no effect.

(5) In the event of an access authority receiving a dedication instrument after the expiry of the period referred to in paragraph (4), it must immediately inform each of the persons identified in it as the persons dedicating the land to which it relates that, by reason of a failure to lodge the dedication instrument within the period referred to in paragraph (4), it is of no effect.
