82.This section provides that the sheriff may, on the application of a senior police officer and if satisfied that it is necessary to do so to prevent the occurrence of relevant harm, make an order extending a closure order for a further period not exceeding the maximum period; the maximum period for an order to be in force (it cannot exceed 6 months in total); and the conditions that must be met before an application for an extension is allowed by the sheriff. These conditions include that the local authority must first be consulted.
