Section 15 — Declarations of ownership in respect of monument

69.This section enables the Welsh Ministers to refuse to consider an application for scheduled monument consent if it is not accompanied by a declaration of ownership signed by or on behalf of the applicant. The declaration relates to the ownership of the monument at the beginning of the 21-day period that ends on the day of the application. It must confirm that the applicant either was then the sole owner of the monument, or has given notice to all other owners of the monument or taken all reasonable steps to do so (subsection (1)). In practice, the applicant can be an owner, occupier, agent or another person.
