EXPLANATORY NOTE

EXPLANATORY NOTE (This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Town and Country Planning (Determination of Appeals by Appointed Persons) (Prescribed Classes) Regulations 1997 (“the principal Regulations”). The principal Regulations prescribe the classes of appeal which are to be determined by persons appointed by the Secretary of State in accordance with the provisions of Schedule 6 to the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (“the Act”).

Regulation 2(2) amends regulation 3 of the principal Regulations by prescribing appeals relating to old mining permissions, under paragraph 5 of Schedule 2 to the Planning and Compensation Act 1991, as appeals to be determined by an appointed person instead of by the Secretary of State.

Regulation 2(3) amends regulation 4 of the principal Regulations, as respects the classes of appeal reserved for determination by the Secretary of State. Unless a direction has been given by the Secretary of State or appropriate Minister that section 266 of the Act (applications for planning permission by statutory undertakers) applies, and the direction has not been revoked, appeals by statutory undertakers under sections 78 or 174 of the Act, relating to operational land or prospective operational land, will now be determined by a person appointed by the Secretary of State.

An impact assessment has been prepared in relation to these Regulations. It has been placed in the Library of each House of Parliament and is available for inspection on the internet at www.communities.gov.uk. Copies can be obtained by post from the Planning Central Casework Division, Department for Communities and Local Government, Eland House, Bressenden Place, London SW1E 5DU.
