PART IIIN.I.COMPENSATION FOR OTHER PLANNING RESTRICTIONS

F126 Compensation where planning permission is revoked or modified.N.I.

(1)F2 Where any planning permission is revoked or modified by an order under [F3section 68 or 72 of the Planning Act] then, if on a claim duly made to the Ministry in accordance with this section, it is shown that a person interested in the land to which the permission related—

(a)has incurred expenditure in carrying out work which is rendered abortive by the revocation or modification; or

(b)has otherwise sustained loss or damage which is directly attributable to the revocation or modification;

the Ministry shall pay to him compensation in respect of that expenditure, loss or damage unless compensation under the Act of 1944 has been paid or is payable in respect of the order in question.

(2)For the purposes of this section, any expenditure incurred in the preparation of plans for the purposes of any work, or upon other similar matters preparatory thereto, shall be taken to be included in the expenditure incurred in carrying out that work.

(3)Subject to subsection (2), compensation shall not be paid under this section in respect of—

(a)any work carried out before the grant of the permission which is revoked or modified; or

(b)any other loss or damage (not being loss or damage consisting of depreciation of the value of a compensatable estate in any land) arising out of anything done or omitted to be done before the grant of that permission.

(4)Where an order under [F4section 68 or 72 of the Planning Act] revokes or modifies any planning permission granted for the carrying out of any new development, then in calculating, for the purposes of this section, the amount of any loss or damage consisting of depreciation of the value of a compensatable estate in any land, it shall be assumed that planning permission would not be granted for any new development of the land but would be granted for any development other than new development.

(5)Where an order under [F5section 68 or 72 of the Planning Act] revokes or modifies any planning permission granted for the carrying out of any development other than new development, the amount of compensation for depreciation payable under this section shall be the amount of compensation which would be payable under section 29 if subsections (3) and (7) of that section were omitted and the order were such a planning decision as is mentioned in section 29(1) which, in the case of an order revoking any permission, refused planning permission to carry out the development in question, or, in the case of an order modifying any permission, granted planning permission to carry out the development in question subject to the like conditions as are specified in the order.

(6)Section 20(2) shall have effect in relation to a claim for compensation under this section as it has effect in relation to a claim for compensation under Part II and section 22 shall have effect in relation to a claim for compensation for depreciation (within the meaning of section 27) as it has effect in relation to a claim for compensation under Part II, and in particular those provisions shall have effect as if for any reference to the date of a planning decision there were substituted a reference to the date of an order under [F6section 68 or 72 of the Planning Act] made after 25th February 1963.

(7)The Ministry may make regulations under this section as to the manner in which any claims for compensation under this section must be made.

[F7(8)Claims under this section shall be made to and paid by the council which made the order in question or, where the order was made by the Department under section 72 of the Planning Act, the council which is treated as having made it under that section.]

29 F12F11Compensation for planning decisions restricting development other than new development.N.I.

(1)This section shall, subject to[F13 subsections (2A), (3) and (3A)], have effect in relation to any planning decision given in pursuance of an application made after 25th February 1963 whereby permission to carry out any development of a class specified in Schedule 1 is refused or is granted subject to conditions.

(2)If on a claim duly made to the Ministry, it is shown that the value of a compensatable estate in the land which is the subject of the planning decision in question, is less than it would have been if the permission had been granted, or had been granted unconditionally, as the case may be, compensation of an amount equal to the difference shall be payable under this section unless compensation under the Act of 1944 has been paid or is payable in respect of the planning decision in question.

[F13(2A)Compensation shall not be payable under this section in relation to such a planning decision as is mentioned in subsection (1) whereby permission to carry out any development of a class specified in paragraphs 1 to 3 of Schedule 1 in relation to a building is refused if by virtue of any other previous planning permission it remains a condition of such planning permission (however expressed) that the building be demolished or cease to be used as a dwelling house.]

(3)Compensation shall not be payable under this section in relation to such a planning decision as is mentioned in subsection (1) whereby permission to use as two or more separate dwelling houses a building which at a material date (as defined in Schedule 1) was used as a single dwelling house is refused or granted subject to conditions unless it appears that the lower value of the compensatable estate in the land to which the planning decision relates (as calculated for the purposes of subsection (2)), is not reasonable having regard to the value of any other comparable dwelling houses situated in the area in which the building in question is situated.

[F13(3A)Compensation shall not be payable under this section on more than one occasion in relation to any estate in land.]

(4)Any dispute under subsection (3) as to whether a vendor would receive a reasonable price for a building in the circumstances mentioned in that subsection shall be referred to the Lands Tribunal for determination.

(5)In determining, for the purposes of subsection (2), whether or to what extent the value of a compensatable estate in land is less than it would have been if the permission had been granted, or had been granted unconditionally—

(a)it shall be assumed that any subsequent application for the like planning permission would be determined in the same way; but

(b)if, in the case of a refusal of planning permission, the Ministry undertook to grant planning permission for some other development of the land in the event of an application being made in that behalf, regard shall be had to that undertaking.

(6)Where planning permission to carry out any such development as is mentioned in subsection (1) is granted subject to conditions for regulating the design or external appearance of buildings, or the size or height of buildings, those conditions shall be disregarded in assessing the compensation, if any, payable under this section.

F14[(6A)Section 24 shall have effect with respect to compensation payable under this section as it has effect with respect to compensation payable under Part II, except that the definition of “relevant development” shall have effect as if for the words “any new development” there were substituted the words “any development of a class specified in Schedule 1” .]
