Section 22 — Recovery of compensation paid under section 21 on subsequent grant of consent

84.Section 22 gives the Welsh Ministers powers to recover compensation paid under section 21 if they subsequently grant consent for, or modify or remove conditions that affected, any or all of the works in respect of which compensation was paid.

85.This section only applies if the Welsh Ministers have served notice of the payment of compensation on the council of each county or county borough in which the monument is located (subsection (2)). The required details of the notice are set out in subsection (5) and subsection (6) makes the notice a local land charge.

86.Subsection (3) provides that when granting or modifying a scheduled monument consent in a case to which this section applies, the Welsh Ministers may specify that works for which compensation had been paid cannot proceed until the “recoverable amount” (defined in section 23) has been repaid or satisfactorily secured.
