Consideration of Bill


 

Growth and Infrastructure Bill, As Amended

 

Variation and replacement of pre-Planning Act 2008 consents

 

Secretary Eric Pickles

 

NC3

 

To move the following Clause:—

 

‘(1)    

After section 237 of the Planning Act 2008 insert—

 

“237A

Variation and replacement of section 33 consents: transitional

 

provision

 

(1)    

This section applies where a section 33 consent (“the original consent”)

 

has been given or made as a result of an application made before Part 4

 

came into force.

 

(2)    

Nothing in section 33 prevents the original section 33 consent, or a

 

section 33 consent that replaces it, from being varied or replaced.

 

(3)    

Subsection (5) applies if the original consent, or a section 33 consent that

 

replaces it, is varied or replaced, and the remaining development is

 

development for which development consent would otherwise be

 

required.

 

(4)    

“The remaining development”—

 

(a)    

in a case where the consent is varied, is the development to which

 

the consent as varied relates, to the extent it has not already been

 

carried out;

 

(b)    

in a case where the consent is replaced, is the development to

 

which the replacement consent relates, to the extent it has not

 

already been carried out.

 

(5)    

Section 31 does not apply to the remaining development (and so

 

development consent is not required for it).

Growth and Infrastructure Bill, continued

 
 

(6)    

A section 33 consent replaces an earlier section 33 consent for the

 

purposes of this section if (but only if)—

 

(a)    

it is granted or made on an application for consent for

 

development without complying with conditions subject to

 

which the earlier section 33 consent was granted or made, and

 

(b)    

it is granted subject to, or made on, different conditions, or

 

unconditionally.

 

(7)    

In this section “section 33 consent” means a consent, authorisation, order,

 

notice or scheme mentioned in section 33(1), (2) or (4).”

 

(2)    

This section is deemed to have had effect since Part 4 of the Planning Act 2008

 

came into force.’.

 

Power to postpone compilation of Welsh rating lists

 

Secretary Eric Pickles

 

NC4

 

To move the following Clause:—

 

‘(1)

heading before that section) insert—

 

“54A  

Postponement of compilation of Welsh lists for 2015 onwards

 

(1)    

The Welsh Ministers may by order provide that the lists to which this

 

section applies must be compiled on a date specified in the order (“the

 

specified date”) rather than on 1 April 2015.

 

(2)    

The lists to which this section applies are—

 

(a)    

each local non-domestic rating list that would otherwise have to

 

be compiled on 1 April 2015 for a billing authority in Wales, and

 

(b)    

the central non-domestic rating list that would otherwise have to

 

be compiled for Wales on that date.

 

(3)    

The specified date must be 1 April in 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 or 2020;

 

and the same date must be specified for each list to which this section

 

applies.

 

(4)    

If an order has effect under this section, section 41 (local rating lists)

 

applies in relation to billing authorities in Wales as if subsection (2)—

 

(a)    

did not require a list to be compiled on 1 April 2015 and on 1

 

April in every fifth year afterwards, but

 

(b)    

instead required a list to be compiled on the specified date and on

 

1 April in every fifth year afterwards.

 

(5)    

If an order has effect under this section, section 52 (central rating lists)

 

applies in relation to Wales as if subsection (2)—

 

(a)    

did not require a list to be compiled on 1 April 2015 and on 1

 

April in every fifth year afterwards, but

 

(b)    

instead required a list to be compiled on the specified date and on

 

1 April in every fifth year afterwards.”

“(9)    

This section in its application to Wales is subject to section 54A

 

(postponement of compilation of Welsh lists for 2015 onwards).”

In section 143 (orders and regulations), after subsection (3B) insert—

 

“(3C)    

The power to make an order under section 54A is exercisable by statutory

 

instrument, and no such order is to be made unless a draft of the order has

 

been laid before and approved by resolution of the National Assembly for

 

Wales.”’.
