The Growth and Infrastructure Act 2013 (Local Development Orders) (Consequential Provisions) (England) Order 2013

The Secretary of State, in exercise of the powers conferred by sections 32(1)(b) and 33 of the Growth and Infrastructure Act 2013, has made an Order which makes consequential, transitional and saving provisions in connection with the commencement of section 5 of the Growth and Infrastructure Act 2013 ("the Act"), which amends various powers and duties in respect of local development orders in England.

Local development orders can be made by local planning authorities under powers in section 61A of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 ("the 1990 Act"), and can be used to grant planning permission for particular types of development in particular areas or throughout the local planning authority’s area.

Section 5 of the Act amends section 61B of, and Schedule 4A to, the 1990 Act to remove the Secretary of State’s powers to intervene in local development orders before they are adopted by local planning authorities. This Order makes related amendments to local development order procedural requirements in the Town and Country Planning (Development Management Procedure) (England) Order 2010 and the Town and Country Planning (Environmental Impact Assessment) Regulations 2011.
