of the land which includes the land over which the right or covenant
comprised in the declaration is proposed to be exercisable or

Section 6

10SCHEDULE 10 Acquisition of part of land only

1 (1) The person to whom the notice to treat mentioned in section 6 is given (“the
owner”) may, within the period of 21 days beginning with the day on which
the notice is given, give the Secretary of State a counter-notice—

(a) 15objecting to the sale of the part (“the land subject to the notice to
treat”), and

(b) stating that he or she is willing and able to sell the whole (“the land
subject to the counter-notice”).

(2) If no counter-notice is given under sub-paragraph (1), the owner is required
20to sell the land subject to the notice to treat.

(3) If—

(a) a counter-notice is given under sub-paragraph (1), and

(b) the Secretary of State agrees to take the land subject to the counter-
notice,

25the notice to treat is to be deemed to be a notice to treat in addition for the
remainder of the land subject to the counter-notice.

(4) If—

(a) a counter-notice is given under sub-paragraph (1), and

(b) the Secretary of State does not agree to take the land subject to the
30counter-notice,

the question as to what land the owner is required to sell must be referred to
the Upper Tribunal.

2 (1) If, on a reference under paragraph 1(4), the Upper Tribunal determines that
the land subject to the notice to treat can be taken—

(a) 35without material detriment to the remainder of the land subject to
the counter-notice, and

(b) where the land subject to the notice to treat consists of or includes
garden only land, without seriously affecting the amenity and
convenience of the house to which the garden only land belongs,

40the owner is required to sell the land subject to the notice to treat.

(2) If, on such a reference, the Upper Tribunal determines that only part of the
land subject to the notice to treat can be taken as mentioned in sub-
paragraph (1), the notice to treat is to be deemed to be a notice to treat for
that part.

High Speed Rail (London - West Midlands) BillPage 121

(3) If, on such a reference, the Upper Tribunal determines—

(a) that none of the land subject to the notice to treat can be taken
without material detriment to the remainder of the land subject to
the counter-notice, but

(b) 5that the material detriment is confined to part of the remainder of
that land,

then, except where sub-paragraph (4) applies, the notice to treat is to be
deemed to be a notice to treat in addition for the land to which the material
detriment is confined.

(4) 10If, in a case where the land subject to the notice to treat consists of or includes
garden only land, the Upper Tribunal determines on such a reference that
none of the land subject to the notice to treat can be taken without seriously
affecting the amenity or convenience of the house to which the garden only
land belongs, the notice to treat is to be deemed to be a notice to treat in
15addition for the remainder of the land subject to the counter-notice.

(5) If, on such a reference, the Upper Tribunal determines—

(a) that none of the land subject to the notice to treat can be taken
without material detriment to the remainder of the land subject to
the counter-notice, and

(b) 20that the material detriment is not confined to part of the remainder
of that land,

the notice to treat is to be deemed to be a notice to treat in addition for the
remainder of the land subject to the counter-notice.

(6) For the purposes of this paragraph, the land subject to the notice to treat
25consists of or includes “garden only land” if—

(a) it consists of the whole part or part of a park or garden belonging to
a house, or

(b) it includes the whole or part of such a park or garden but does not
include the house or any part of it.

3 (1) 30Where under paragraph 2 a notice to treat is deemed by virtue of a
determination of the Upper Tribunal to be a notice to treat for less land or
more land than that specified in the notice, the Secretary of State may, within
the period of 6 weeks beginning with the day on which the determination is
made, withdraw the notice.

(2) 35If the Secretary of State withdraws a notice to treat under sub-paragraph (1),
the Secretary of State must pay the person to whom the notice was given
compensation for any loss or expense occasioned to that person by the
giving and withdrawal of the notice; and in case of dispute, such
compensation is to be determined by the Upper Tribunal.

(3) 40Where under paragraph 1 or 2 a person is required to sell part only of a
house, building or manufactory or of land consisting of a house with a park
or garden, the Secretary of State must pay the person compensation for any
loss sustained by the person due to the severance of that part in addition to
the value of the interest acquired.

(4) 45A notice to treat has the effect which it is deemed to have under paragraph
1(3) or paragraph 2(3), (4) or (5) whether or not the additional land is, apart
from that provision, land which the Secretary of State is authorised to
acquire compulsorily under this Act.
