Housing (Wales) Measure 2011

Section 7 – Meaning of “enlarging variation” and “reducing variation”

31.Section 7 defines an “enlarging variation” and a “reducing variation” of a direction. An enlarging variation involves amending a direction to increase the area caught by it or to add to the types of dwelling houses caught. Because an enlarging variation applies to a larger area or a greater number of houses, the procedure for applying for such a variation is similar to that for applying for a direction under Part 1. A reducing variation involves amending the direction so that it applies to a smaller area or fewer houses, so a less extensive procedure applies.
