Transport (Scotland) Act 2001

Section 51 Confirmation of orders

83.This section sets out the means by which a road user-charging scheme must be confirmed. A charging scheme order cannot come into force without the approval of the Scottish Ministers. If a charging authority or authorities wish to vary or revoke a scheme by order, it too cannot come into force without the approval of the Scottish Ministers (subsection (1)).

84.The Scottish Ministers can define by means of regulations circumstances where subsection (1) will not apply. This will allow specified minor variations to a scheme, for example making slight alterations to the length of the charged period, to be made without ministerial confirmation.

85.The Scottish Ministers will be able to make modifications to the charging scheme order before they confirm it.
