(1)    This article shall apply instead of section 8(1) of the 1965 Act (as applied by article 21 above) in any case where—

(a)    a notice to treat is served on a person (“the owner”) under the 1965 Act (as so applied) in respect of land forming only part of a house, building or factory or of land consisting of a house with a park or garden (“the land subject to the notice to treat”); and

(b)    a copy of this article is served on the owner with the notice to treat.

(2)    In such a case, the owner may, within the period of 21 days beginning with the day on which the notice was served, serve on DLRL a counter-notice objecting to the sale of the land subject to the notice to treat and stating that he is willing and able to sell the whole (“the land subject to the counter-notice”).

(3)    If no such counter-notice is served within that period, the owner shall be required to sell the land subject to the notice to treat.

(4)    If such a counter-notice is served within that period, the question whether the owner shall be required to sell only the land subject to the notice to treat shall, unless DLRL agrees to take the land subject to the counter-notice, be referred to the tribunal.

(5)    If on such a reference the tribunal determine that the land subject to the notice to treat can be taken—

(a)    without material detriment to the remainder of the land subject to the counter-notice; or

(b)    in the case of part of land consisting of a house with a park or garden, without material detriment to the remainder of the land subject to the counter-notice and without seriously affecting the amenity and convenience of the house,

the notice to treat shall be deemed to be a notice to treat for that part.

(7)    If on such a reference the tribunal determine that—

(a)    the land subject to the notice to treat cannot be taken without material detriment to the remainder of the land subject to the counter-notice; but

(b)    the material detriment is confined to a part of the land subject to the counter-notice,

the notice to treat shall be deemed to be a notice to treat for the land to which the material detriment is confined in addition to the land already subject to the notice, whether or not the additional land is land which DLRL is authorised to acquire compulsorily under this Order.

(8)    If DLRL agrees to take the land subject to the counter-notice, or if the tribunal determine that—

(a)    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 or, as the case may be, without material detriment to the remainder of the land subject to the counter-notice and without seriously affecting the amenity and convenience of the house; and

(b)    the material detriment is not confined to a part of the land subject to the counter-notice,

the notice to treat shall be deemed to be a notice to treat for the land subject to the counter-notice whether or not the whole of that land is land which DLRL is authorised to acquire compulsorily under this Order.

(9)    In any case where by virtue of a determination by the tribunal under this article a notice to treat is deemed to be a notice to treat for less land or more land than that specified in the notice, DLRL may, within the period of 6 weeks beginning with the day on which the determination is made, withdraw the notice to treat; and, if it does so, shall pay to the owner compensation for any loss or expense occasioned to him by the giving and withdrawal of the notice, to be determined in case of dispute by the tribunal.

(10)    Where the owner is required under this article to sell only part of a house, building or factory or of land consisting of a house with a park or garden, DLRL shall pay him compensation for any loss sustained by him due to the severance of that part in addition to the value of the interest acquired.

1

The enactments for the time being in force with respect to compensation for the compulsory purchase of land shall apply with the necessary modifications as respects compensation in the case of a compulsory acquisition under this Order of a right by the creation of a new right as they apply as respects compensation on the compulsory purchase of land and interests in land.

(2)    In section 44(1) (compensation for injurious affection), as it applies to compensation for injurious affection under section 7 of the 1965 Act as substituted by paragraph 4 below—

(a)    for the words “land is acquired or taken” there shall be substituted the words “a right over land is purchased”; and

(b)    for the words “acquired or taken from him” there shall be substituted the words “over which the right is exercisable”.

(3)    In section 58(1) (determination of material detriment where part of house etc proposed for compulsory acquisition), as it applies to determinations under section 8 of the 1965 Act as substituted by paragraph 5 below—

(a)    for the word “part” in paragraphs (a) and (b) there shall be substituted the words “a right over land consisting”;

(c)    for the words “part proposed” there shall be substituted the words “right proposed”; and

(d)    for the words “part is” there shall be substituted the words “right is”.

Adaptation of the 1965 Act

3

(1)    The 1965 Act shall have effect with the modifications necessary to make it apply to the compulsory acquisition under this Order of a right by the creation of a new right as it applies to the compulsory acquisition under this Order of land, so that, in appropriate contexts, references in that Act to land are read (according to the requirements of the particular context) as referring to, or as including references to—

(a)    the right acquired or to be acquired; or

(b)    the land over which the right is or is to be exercisable.

(2)    Without prejudice to the generality of sub-paragraph (1) above, Part I of the 1965 Act shall apply in relation to the compulsory acquisition under this Order of a right by the creation of a new right with the modifications specified in the following provisions of this Schedule.

4

For section 7 of the 1965 Act (measure of compensation) there shall be substituted the following section:—

“7

In assessing the compensation to be paid by the acquiring authority under this Act regard shall be had not only to the extent (if any) to which the value of the land over which the right is to be acquired is depreciated by the acquisition of the right but also to the damage (if any) to be sustained by the owner of the land by reason of its severance from other land of his, or injuriously affecting that other land by the exercise of the powers conferred by this or the special Act.”.

5

For section 8 of the 1965 Act (provisions as to divided land) there shall be substituted the following:—

“8

(1)    Where in consequence of the service on a person under section 5 of this Act of a notice to treat in respect of a right over land consisting of a house, building or manufactory or of a park or garden belonging to a house (“the relevant land”)—

(a)    a question of disputed compensation in respect of the purchase of the right would apart from this section fall to be determined by the Lands Tribunal (“the tribunal”); and

(b)    before the tribunal has determined that question the person satisfies the tribunal that he has an interest which he is able and willing to sell in the whole of the relevant land and—

(i)    where that land consists of a house, building or manufactory, that the right cannot be purchased without material detriment to that land; or

(ii)    where that land consists of such a park or garden, that the right cannot be purchased without seriously affecting the amenity or convenience of the house to which that land belongs;

the Docklands Light Railway (Silvertown and London City Airport Extension) Order 2002 (“the Order”) shall, in relation to that person cease to authorise the purchase of the right and be deemed to authorise the purchase of that person's interest in the whole of the relevant land including, where the land consists of such a park or garden, the house to which it belongs, and the notice shall be deemed to have been served in respect of that interest on such date as the tribunal directs.

(2)    Any question as to the extent of the land in which the Order is deemed to authorise the purchase of an interest by virtue of subsection (1) of this section shall be determined by the tribunal.

(3)    Where in consequence of a determination of the tribunal that it is satisfied as mentioned in subsection (1) of this section the Order is deemed by virtue of that subsection to authorise the purchase of an interest in land, the acquiring authority may, at any time within the period of six weeks beginning with the date of the determination, withdraw the notice to treat in consequence of which the determination was made; but nothing in this subsection prejudices any other power of the authority to withdraw the notice.”.

6

The following provisions of the 1965 Act (which state the effect of a deed poll executed in various circumstances where there is no conveyance by persons with interests in the land), that is to say:—

(a)    section 9(4) (failure by owners to convey);

(b)    paragraph 10(3) of Schedule 1 (owners under incapacity);

(c)    paragraph 2(3) of Schedule 2 (absent and untraced owners); and

(d)    paragraphs 2(3) and 7(2) of Schedule 4 (common land);

shall be so modified as to secure that, as against persons with interests in the land which are expressed to be overridden by the deed, the right which is to be compulsorily acquired is vested absolutely in the acquiring authority.

7

Section 11 of the 1965 Act (powers of entry) shall be so modified as to secure that, as from the date on which the acquiring authority have served notice to treat in respect of any right, they have power, exercisable in the like circumstances and subject to the like conditions, to enter for the purpose of exercising that right (which shall be deemed for this purpose to have been created on the date of service of the notice); and sections 12 (penalty for unauthorised entry) and 13 (entry on warrant in the event of obstruction) of the 1965 Act shall be modified correspondingly.

8

Section 20 of the 1965 Act (protection for interests of tenants at will etc) shall apply with the modifications necessary to secure that persons with such interests in land as are mentioned in that section are compensated in a manner corresponding to that in which they would be compensated on a compulsory acquisition under this Order of that land, but taking into account only the extent (if any) of such interference with such an interest as is actually caused, or likely to be caused, by the exercise of the right in question.

9

Section 22 of the 1965 Act (protection of acquiring authority's possession where by inadvertence an estate, right or interest has not been got in) shall be so modified as to enable the acquiring authority, in circumstances corresponding to those referred to in that section, to continue to be entitled to exercise the right acquired, subject to compliance with that section as respects compensation.

(2)    DLRL shall give not less than 28 days' notice in writing of its intention to stop up any street under article 10 of this Order to any statutory utility whose apparatus is under, in, upon, over, along or across that street.

(3)    Where notice under sub-paragraph (2) above has been given, any statutory utility whose apparatus is under, in, upon, over, along or across the street may where reasonably necessary for the efficient operation of the undertaking of the statutory utility and, if reasonably requested so to do by DLRL, shall—

(a)    remove the apparatus and place it or other apparatus provided in substitution for it in such other position as the statutory utility may reasonably determine and have power to place it; or

(b)    provide other apparatus in substitution for the existing apparatus and place it in such position as aforesaid.

(4)    Subject to the following provisions of this paragraph, DLRL shall pay to any statutory utility an amount equal to the cost reasonably incurred by the statutory utility in or in connection with:—

(a)    the execution of relocation works required in consequence of the stopping up of the street; and

(b)    the doing of any other work or thing rendered necessary by the execution of relocation works.

(5)    If in the course of the execution of relocation works under sub-paragraph (3) above—

(a)    apparatus of better type, of greater capacity or of greater dimensions is placed in substitution for existing apparatus of worse type, of smaller capacity or of smaller dimensions except where this has been solely due to using the nearest available type, capacity or dimension; or

(b)    apparatus (whether existing apparatus or apparatus substituted for existing apparatus) is placed at a depth greater than the depth at which the existing apparatus was,

and the placing of apparatus of that type or capacity or of those dimensions or the placing of apparatus at that depth, as the case may be, is not agreed by DLRL, or, in default of agreement, is not determined by arbitration to be necessary in consequence of the construction of the authorised works in order to ensure the continued efficient operation of the undertaking of the statutory utility, then, if it involves cost in the execution of the relocation works exceeding that which would have been involved if the apparatus placed had been of the existing type, capacity or dimensions, or at the existing depth, as the case may be, the amount which apart from this sub-paragraph would be payable to the statutory utility by virtue of sub-paragraph (4) above shall be reduced by the amount of that excess.

(6)    For the purposes of sub-paragraph (5) above—

(a)    an extension of apparatus to a length greater than the length of existing apparatus shall not be treated as a placing of apparatus of greater dimensions than those of the existing apparatus except in a case where the apparatus as so extended provides more than an equivalent service; and

(b)    where the provision of a joint in a cable is agreed, or is determined to be necessary, the consequential provision of a jointing chamber or of a manhole shall be treated as if it also had been agreed or had been so determined.

(7)    An amount which apart from this sub-paragraph would be payable to a statutory utility in respect of works by virtue of sub-paragraph (4) above (and having regard, where relevant, to sub-paragraph (5) above) shall, if the works include the placing of apparatus provided in substitution for apparatus placed more than 7 years and 6 months earlier so as to confer on the utility any financial benefit by deferment of the time for renewal of the apparatus in the ordinary course, be reduced by the amount which represents that benefit as calculated in accordance with the Code of Practice entitled “Measures Necessary where Apparatus is Affected by Major Works (Diversionary Works)” and dated June 1992 and approved by the Secretary of State on 30th June 1992, as revised and re-issued from time to time.

(8)    Sub-paragraphs (4) to (7) above shall not apply where the authorised works constitute major transport works for the purposes of Part III of the 1991 Act, but instead—

(a)    the allowable costs of the relocation works shall be determined in accordance with section 85 of that Act (sharing of costs of necessary measures) and any regulations for the time being having effect under that section; and

(b)    the allowable costs shall be borne by DLRL and the statutory utility in such proportions as may be prescribed by any such regulations.

(9)    The temporary stopping up, alteration or diversion of any highway under article 10 of this Order shall not affect any right of a public telecommunications operator under paragraph 9 of the telecommunications code in respect of any apparatus which at the time of the stopping up or diversion is in the highway.

(10)    In this paragraph—

“apparatus” has the same meaning as in Part III of the 1991 Act;

“public telecommunications operator” has the same meaning as in paragraph 1, above;

“relocation works” means works executed, or apparatus provided, under sub-paragraph (3) above; and

“statutory utility” means a statutory undertaker for the purposes of the Highways Act 1980 or a public telecommunications operator as defined in paragraph 1(6) above.

4

In carrying out the authorised works, DLRL shall—

(a)    maintain vehicular and pedestrian access to and egress from the Thames Barrier along the Barrier Access Road or provide a reasonably suitable alternative for Environment Agency employees, their vehicles and security vehicles employed in connection with the Thames Barrier;

(b)    maintain reasonable access to and egress from the open channel section of the Royal Victoria Docks Cut between Dock Road and the outfall culvert.

5

If, in an emergency relating to the Thames Barrier or the Barking Barrier and its associated gates, the Environment Agency notifies DLRL that it requires the use of the Barrier Access Road for emergency vehicles and plant and DLRL is at that time undertaking works that cause an obstruction to the Barrier Access Road, DLRL shall immediately upon receipt of such notice take such steps as may be reasonably necessary to ensure the removal of the obstruction, including if necessary the temporary suspension of so much of the authorised works as is causing the obstruction.

6

So much of Work No 1 as crosses the Barrier Access Road or any carriageways at the North Woolwich Roundabout which need to be used to access the Barrier Access Road shall be constructed with a minimum clearance of 5.3 metres to the underside of the permanent viaduct structure and so that no supporting pillar intrudes into the carriageway so as to cause any restriction on access or egress or to the turning arrangements at the junction with Woolwich North Road.

7

DLRL may relocate the turning bay on the Barrier Access Road within the limits of deviation so far as this is necessary to ensure that the authorised works do not prevent an adequate turning bay remaining continuously available during and after the construction of the works.

8

Subject to paragraphs 4 to 7 above, DLRL will not acquire from the Environment Agency under the powers conferred by this Order any rights or interests in the Barrier Access Road and adjacent land beyond those that are reasonably required for or in connection with the construction and operation of the authorised works, including for the avoidance of doubt the airspace occupied by and above the viaduct forming part of Work No 1, associated pillars and rights to protect the safe and efficient operation and use of the authorised works and access for the maintenance of those works.

9

Before carrying out under the powers of this Order—

(a)    any part of the authorised works on or within 8 metres of the banks of any watercourse or within 16 metres in the case of a watercourse which is tidal (including the tidal docks);

(b)    the erection or raising of any obstruction to the flow of any watercourse which is not part of a main river within the meaning of section 113 of the Water Resources Act 1991; or

(c)    the construction, alteration or replacement of any culvert or any structure designed to contain or divert the flow of any such watercourse in or through any land within the limits of deviation or the further limits,

DLRL shall supply to the Environment Agency for its approval proper and sufficient plans of its proposals (including, where appropriate, plans for mitigating any adverse effects) and shall not carry out any such operation or work otherwise than in accordance with such plans as are approved.

10

The approval of plans supplied under paragraph 9 above shall not be unreasonably withheld and if, within 2 months of such plans being supplied to the Environment Agency, the Environment Agency does not indicate in writing its disapproval and the grounds of its disapproval, it shall be deemed to have approved the plans as supplied.

11

For the purposes of paragraph 9 above, “banks” has the meaning given by section 72 of the Land Drainage Act 1991 and “plans” includes sections, drawings, specifications, calculations and descriptions.

12

Any culvert or any structure designed to contain or divert the flow of any watercourse being a culvert or structure situated within any land within the limits of deviation for the scheduled works, whether constructed under the powers conferred by this Order or in existence prior to the making of this Order, shall be maintained by DLRL in good repair and condition and free from obstruction.

13

Nothing in paragraph 12 above shall have the effect of requiring DLRL to carry out works of maintenance in respect of any culvert or structure which the Environment Agency or another person is liable to maintain.

14

If any operation or work is carried out in contravention of this Schedule DLRL shall upon receiving notice from the Environment Agency take such action as may be necessary to remedy the effect of the contravention to the Environment Agency's reasonable satisfaction and in default the Environment Agency may itself take such action as may be necessary and recover the expenses reasonably incurred by it in doing so from the undertaker as a debt due from it to the Environment Agency.

(a)    the exact position of the specified work;

(b)    the level at which it is proposed to be constructed or renewed;

(c)    the manner of its construction or renewal;

(d)    the position of all sewers within 15 metres of the specified work or upon which the specified work will impose a load; and

(e)    by way of detailed drawings, every alteration proposed to be made to any such sewer.

22

DLRL shall not commence the construction or renewal of any specified work to which paragraph 21 above applies until the specified undertaker has given written approval of the plans so submitted.

23

Any approval of the specified undertaker required under paragraph 22 above—

(a)    may be given subject to reasonable conditions for any purpose mentioned in paragraph 24 below;

(b)    shall not be unreasonably withheld; and

(c)    shall be deemed to have been given if it is neither given nor refused within 56 days of the submission of plans for approval.

24

In relation to a work to which paragraph 21 above applies, the specified undertaker may require such modifications to be made to the plans as may be reasonably necessary for the purpose of securing its sewerage system against interference or risk of damage or for the purpose of providing or securing proper and convenient means of access to any sewer.

25

A specified work shall be constructed (and in the case of any temporary work removed) only in accordance with—

(a)    the plans submitted as aforesaid (and, in the case of plans relating to sewers approved, deemed to have been approved or settled by arbitration, as amended from time to time by agreement between DLRL and the specified undertaker); and

(b)    all reasonable requirements made by the specified undertaker for the alteration, or otherwise for the protection, of the apparatus, or for securing access thereto;

and the specified undertaker shall be entitled by its officer to watch and inspect the carrying out of the work.

26

27

Nothing in paragraphs 20 or 26 above shall preclude DLRL from submitting at any time, or from time to time, but in no case less than 28 days before commencing the construction of any specified work, a new plan thereof in lieu of the plan previously submitted, and thereupon the provisions of those paragraphs shall apply to, and in respect of, such new plan save that the reference in paragraph 26 above to 42 days shall be treated as a reference to 21 days.

28

DLRL shall not be required to comply with paragraph 20 above in a case where it is necessary to carry out emergency works but, in such a case, it shall give to the specified undertaker notice so soon as reasonably practicable, and a plan of the works so soon as reasonably practicable thereafter, and shall comply with paragraph 25 above so far as reasonably practicable in the circumstances.

29

Nothing in paragraph 28 above shall entitle DLRL to carry out works to any apparatus but, upon receipt of notice from DLRL, the specified undertaker shall proceed to carry out such works as may be required with all reasonable despatch.

Co-operation

30

Where in consequence of the proposed construction of any of the authorised works, DLRL or a specified undertaker requires the removal of apparatus under paragraph 8 above or a specified undertaker makes requirements for the protection or alteration of apparatus under paragraph 25 above, DLRL shall use its best endeavours to co-ordinate the execution of the works in the interests of safety and the efficient and economic execution of the authorised works and each specified undertaker shall use its best endeavours to co-operate with DLRL for that purpose.

Access

31

If in consequence of the exercise of the powers of this Order the access to any apparatus is materially obstructed DLRL shall provide such alternative means of access to such apparatus as will enable the specified undertaker to maintain or use the apparatus no less effectively than was possible before such obstruction.

Expenses

32

Subject to the provisions of the following paragraphs of this Schedule, DLRL shall repay to the specified undertaker the reasonable expenses incurred by the specified undertaker in, or in connection with—

(a)    the inspection, removal and relaying or replacing, alteration or protection of any apparatus or the construction of any new apparatus under any provision of this Schedule (including any costs reasonably incurred or compensation properly paid in connection with the acquisition of rights or exercise of statutory powers for such apparatus);

(b)    the cutting off of any apparatus from any other apparatus, or the making safe of any redundant apparatus in consequence of the exercise by DLRL of any power under this Order;

(c)    the survey of any land, apparatus or works, the inspection and monitoring of works or the installation or removal of any temporary works reasonably necessary in consequence of the exercise by DLRL of any power under this Order; and

(d)    any other work or thing rendered reasonably necessary in consequence of the exercise by DLRL of any such power,

within a reasonable time of being notified by the specified undertaker that it has incurred such expenses.

33

There shall be deducted from any sum payable under paragraph 32 above the value of any apparatus removed under the provisions of this Schedule, that value being calculated after removal.

34

If in pursuance of the provisions of this Schedule—

(a)    alternative apparatus of better type, or greater capacity or of greater dimensions is placed in substitution for existing apparatus of worse type, of smaller capacity or of smaller dimensions, except where this has been solely due to using the nearest currently available type; or

(b)    apparatus (whether existing apparatus or alternative apparatus) is placed at a depth greater than the depth at which the existing apparatus was situated;

and the placing of apparatus of that type or capacity or of those dimensions, or the placing of apparatus at that depth, as the case may be, is not agreed by DLRL or, in default of agreement, is not determined by arbitration to be necessary having regard, inter alia, to the nature of the authorised works, then, if such placing involves cost in the construction of works under paragraphs 9 to 12 above exceeding that which would have been involved if the apparatus placed had been of the existing type, capacity or dimensions, or at the existing depth, as the case may be, the amount which apart from this paragraph would be payable to the specified undertaker by virtue of paragraph 32 above shall be reduced by the amount of that excess.

35

For the purposes of paragraph 34 above—

(a)    an extension of apparatus to a length greater than the length of existing apparatus shall not be treated as a placing of apparatus of greater dimensions than those of the existing apparatus except in a case where the apparatus as so extended serves a purpose (either additional to or instead of that served by the existing apparatus) which was not served by the existing apparatus; and

(b)    where the provision of a joint in a pipe or cable is agreed, or is determined to be necessary, the consequential provision of a jointing chamber or of a manhole shall be treated as if it also had been agreed or had been so determined.

36

An amount which apart from this paragraph would be payable to the specified undertaker in respect of works by virtue of paragraphs 32 to 35 above shall, if the works include the placing of apparatus provided in substitution for apparatus placed more than 7 years and 6 months earlier so as to confer on the specified undertaker any financial benefit by deferment of the time for renewal of the apparatus or of the system of which it forms part in the ordinary course, be reduced by the amount which represents that benefit as calculated in accordance with the Code of Practice entitled “Measures Necessary where Apparatus is Affected by Major Works (Diversionary Works)” and dated June 1992 and approved by the Secretary of State on 30th June 1992, as revised and re-issued from time to time.

37

In any case where work is carried out by DLRL pursuant to paragraphs 14 to 16 above and, if such work had been carried out by the specified undertaker, the repayment made to the specified undertaker under paragraph 32 above would fall to be reduced pursuant to paragraphs 34 to 36 above, the specified undertaker shall pay to DLRL such sum as represents the amount of that reduction.

Indemnity

38

If, by reason or in consequence of the construction, maintenance or failure of any of the authorised works, including any works carried out by DLRL pursuant to paragraph 14 above or protective works required by a condition imposed under paragraph 23(a) above or required under paragraph 25(b) above, or any subsidence resulting from any of those works, any damage shall be caused to any apparatus (other than apparatus the repair of which is not reasonably necessary in view of its intended removal for the purposes of those works) or other property of the specified undertaker, or there is any interruption in any service provided by the specified undertaker, DLRL shall repay the cost reasonably incurred by the specified undertaker in making good such damage, or restoring the supply, and shall—

(a)    make reasonable compensation to the specified undertaker for any loss sustained by it; and

(b)    indemnify the specified undertaker against all claims, demands, proceedings, costs, damages and expenses which may be made or taken against or recovered from, or incurred by, the specified undertaker;

by reason or in consequence of any such damage or interruption; and the fact that any act or thing may have been done by the specified undertaker on behalf of DLRL or in accordance with plans approved by the specified undertaker or in accordance with any requirement of the specified undertaker or under its supervision shall not, subject to paragraph 39 below, excuse DLRL from any liability under the provisions of this paragraph.

39

Nothing in paragraph 38 above shall impose any liability on DLRL with respect to any damage or interruption to the extent that such damage or interruption is attributable to the neglect or default of the specified undertaker, its officers, servants, contractors or other agents.

40

The specified undertaker shall give to DLRL reasonable notice of any claim or demand as aforesaid and no settlement or compromise thereof shall be made without the prior consent of DLRL which shall not be unreasonably withheld.

Exercise of Safeguarding and Survey Powers

41

DLRL shall, so far as is reasonably practicable, so exercise the powers conferred by article 16 of this Order as not to obstruct or render less convenient the access to any apparatus.

42

DLRL shall not, in the exercise of the powers of section 11(3) of the 1965 Act, as applied by this Order, or of article 18 of this Order, make any trial holes which interfere with any apparatus without the consent of the specified undertaker (which shall not be unreasonably withheld).

Arbitration

43

Any difference arising between DLRL and a specified undertaker under this Schedule (other than a difference as to its meaning or construction) shall be determined by arbitration in the manner provided by article 48 of this Order and in determining any difference under this Schedule the arbitrator may, if he thinks fit, require DLRL to execute any temporary or other works so as to avoid, so far as may be reasonably possible, interference with the use of any apparatus.

Transfer of Powers

44

DLRL shall give notice to every specified undertaker if any of the powers of DLRL under this Order are transferred to another person in accordance with article 41 of this Order and any such notice shall be given within 14 days of any such transfer becoming effective and shall describe or give (as appropriate)—

(a)    the nature of the functions to be transferred;

(b)    the extent of that transfer;

(c)    the geographical area to which the transfer relates;

(d)    the name and address of the transferee; and

(e)    the effective date of the transfer.

45

The obligation to give notice under paragraph 44 above to a successor in title to a specified undertaker named in paragraph 1 above shall only apply to the extent that DLRL has been informed by notice in writing by that named undertaker, or by a successor in title to that named undertaker, as the case may be, of the name and address of that successor in title.

46

Any notice in writing to be given by DLRL to a specified undertaker under this Schedule shall be deemed effectively given if sent by recorded delivery or by registered letter addressed to the registered office of that specified undertaker.
