Improvement notices

7.—(1) If an inspector is of the opinion that a person—

(a)is carrying on any activity contravening one or more of the conditions of a licence issued under this Order, or

(b)has contravened one or more of those conditions in circumstances that make it likely that the contravention will continue or be repeated,

that inspector may serve on that person a notice (“an improvement notice”).

(2) An improvement notice must—

(a)specify the conditions of the licence that have been contravened;

(b)explain the reasons why the inspector is of that opinion; and

(c)require that person to remedy the contravention or the matters occasioning it, within such period as may be specified in the notice.

(3) A notice must include directions as to the measures to be taken to remedy any contravention or matter to which the notice relates; and any such directions may be framed so as to afford the person on whom the notice is served a choice between different ways of remedying the contravention or matter.
