    (a) any interest in land, or

    (b) any enhancement of the value of any interest in land by reason of any building erected, works executed or improvement or alteration made on relevant land,

if the tribunal is satisfied that the creation of the interest, the erection of the building, the execution of the works or the making of the improvement or alteration was not reasonably necessary and was undertaken with a view to obtaining compensation or increased compensation.

    (2) In paragraph (1) "relevant land" means the land acquired from the person concerned or any other land with which he is, or was at the time when the building was erected, the works executed or the improvement or alteration made, directly or indirectly concerned.

Supplementary

Acquisition of part of certain properties
    8. - (1) This article shall apply instead of section 8(1) of the 1965 Act (as applied by article 4) 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 the Company 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 the Company 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 owner shall be required to sell the land subject to the notice to treat.

    (6) If on such a reference the tribunal determine that only part of 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 the undertaker is authorised to acquire compulsorily under this Order.

    (8) If the Company 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 the Company 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, the Company 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 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, the Company 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.

Extinction or suspension of rights affecting land
    9. - (1) All private rights, easements, covenants and licences over land subject to compulsory acquisition under this Order shall be extinguished - 

    (a) as from the acquisition of the land by the Company, whether compulsorily or by agreement, or

    (b) on the entry on the land by the Company under section 11(1) of the 1965 Act,

whichever is sooner.

    (2) All private rights, easements, covenants and licences over land of which the Company takes temporary possession under this Order shall be suspended and unenforceable for as long as the Company remains in lawful possession of the land.

    (3) Any person who suffers loss by the extinguishment or suspension of any private right, easement, covenant or licence under this article shall be entitled to compensation to be determined, in case of dispute, under Part I of the 1961 Act.

    (4) This article does not apply in relation to any right of way to which section 271 or 272 of the Planning Act (extinguishment of rights of statutory undertakers etc.) applies.

Time limit for exercise of powers of acquisition

Compensation enactments

    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 - 

    (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".

    (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

    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 to be 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), 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 East Midlands Parkway Station (Land Acquisition) Order 2005 ("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),

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

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

    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.
