(2) The commencement of sub-paragraph (2) of paragraph 32 of Schedule 10 to the 1995 Act shall not affect the constitution of a united district for a National Park (or any area which by virtue of paragraph 3 of Schedule 17 to the Local Government Act 1972(3) is treated as a united district) where such a district is in being immediately before the commencement of the said sub-paragraph; and such a district shall continue to be constituted until such time as is provided for in an order under section 63 of the 1995 Act (establishment of National Park authorities) or section 2 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990(4) (joint planning boards) or Part I of Schedule 17 to the Local Government Act 1972 (discharge of planning and countryside functions in National Parks).


Paragraph 30 of Schedule 10 amends paragraph 2(6) of Schedule 8 to the Electricity Act 1989 (c. 29) (definition of “relevant planning authority” for the purposes of consents under that Act of 1989). Amendment to the a said paragraph 2(6) of Schedule 8 is also made by paragraph 22 of Schedule 6 to the Local Government (Wales) Act 1994 (c. 19) (referred to in sub-paragraph (2) of the said paragraph 30 as “the 1994 amendment”). The 1994 amendment has not yet been brought into force. Consequently, sub-paragraph (3) of the said paragraph 30 applies and not sub-paragraph (4) or (5) thereof. The said paragraph 2(6) of Schedule 8 to the 1989 Act was also amended by the Planning (Consequential Provisions) Act 1990 (c. 10) Schedule 2 paragraph 83(1).


1992 c. 14. Section 35(5) of the Act of 1992 was inserted by Schedule 12 paragraph 6 to the Local Government (Wales) Act 1994.
