(a)stating the nature, dimensions and location of the proposed works, and

(b)specifying the address to which and the period (not being less than 30 days from the date of publication of the notice) within which objections to the proposal may be made to the Department.

extend to maintaining or, as the case may be, making good any damage to or otherwise reinstating the works.
