Correction of errors in deposited plans and book of reference

26.—(1) If the deposited plans, or the deposited book of reference, are inaccurate in their description of any land, or in their statement or description of the ownership or occupation of any land, the Council, after giving not less than 10 days' notice to the owner, lessee or occupier of the land in question, may apply to the sheriff for the correction thereof.

(2) If on any such application it appears to the sheriff that the misstatement or wrong description arose from mistake or inadvertence, he shall certify the fact accordingly and shall in his certificate state in what respect any matter is misstated or wrongly described.

(3) The certificate shall be deposited in the Scottish Executive and a copy thereof in the offices of the Council, and with the sheriff clerk and with the Head of Legal Services of the Council and thereupon the deposited plans and the deposited book of reference shall be deemed to be corrected according to the certificate and it shall be lawful for the Council to take the land or, as the case may be, a right over the land and execute the works in accordance with the certificate.

(4) A person with whom a copy of a certificate is deposited under this article shall keep it with the other documents to which it relates.
