(c)identify the qualifying land, or any part of it, which the entitled person nominates as the burdened property in relation to the real burden,

(h)set out the terms of any counter-obligation to the qualifying condition if it is a counter-obligation enforceable against the entitled person.

(4)The conversion conditions are—

(ii)resort,

and that building is, at some point, within 100 metres (measuring along a horizontal plane) of the land which would by virtue of this section and sections 15 and 16 become the burdened property,
