§ (1)(a) Where in pursuance of a housing scheme to which this Section applies new buildings are constructed or public streets or roads are laid out and constructed in accordance with plans and specifications approved by the Board, 1766 the provisions of any building Regulations shall not apply to the new buildings and new streets or roads carried out in pursuance of the scheme, so far as those provisions are inconsistent with the plans and specifications approved by the Board, and notwithstanding the provisions of any other Act any street or road laid out and constructed in accordance with such plans and specifications may be taken over and thereafter maintained by the authority responsible for the maintenance of public streets, roads, or highways in the district.
§ (b) Where the Board have approved plans and specifications which in certain respects are inconsistent with the provisions of any building Regulations which are in force in the district in which the works are to be executed, any proposals for the erection therein of buildings and the laying out and construction of new streets or roads which do not form part of a housing scheme to which this Section applies may, notwithstanding those provisions, be carried out if the local authority are satisfied that they will involve departures from such provisions only to the like extent as in the case of the plans and specifications so approved.
§ (3) The housing schemes to which this Section applies are schemes prepared or made by a local authority or by local authorities jointly under the Housing Acts, or by a public utility society or housing trust, and approved by the Board, and schemes prepared, made, or carried into execution by the Board under this Act.
§ Lords Amendments:
§ In Sub-section (1), (a), leave out the word "carried," and insert instead thereof the words "constructed and laid."— Agreed to.
§ In Sub-section (1), (b), after the word "authority"["if the local authority are satisfied"],insert the words "or on appeal the Board."—Agreed to.
§ In Sub-section (3), after the word "trust," insert the words "or by a county council or district board of control for the provision of houses for persons in their employment or paid by them."
§ Mr. CLYDE
I beg to move "That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment." The effect of this is to remove a very small omission in the Bill, for it provides that a county council or a district board of control who are carrying out schemes for housing their own employés should have the same privileges with regard to the relaxation of by-laws as are conferred on the local authority or the private utility society.
§ Question put, and agreed to.
