(a)require any person interested in the relevant land to supply them with such information as they reasonably consider necessary; and

(b)consult the public, if they consider it necessary.

(a)in the case of a decision, revoke the decision; and

(b)in the case of a consent, either—

(i)revoke the consent; or

(ii)make such modifications to the consent as they consider necessary to ensure that the project with not adversely affect the integrity of the European site,

(a)submitted to the Welsh Ministers within 6 weeks of the date of the notification of the further decision; and
