Water Resources (Scotland) Act 2013

Section 21 – Controlled Activities Regulations

35.This section provides that nothing in Part 2 of the Act affects any requirement for authorisation under the Controlled Activities Regulations. It clarifies that an abstraction may require both an authorisation under those Regulations and approval under Part 2.

36.As it is possible that the Controlled Activities Regulations might be altered or replaced in future, the section also enables the Scottish Ministers by regulations to modify this section and section 7, should that prove necessary as a result of the Controlled Activities Regulations being revoked or amended or new regulations be made regarding the same subject-matter.
