A428 Black Cat to Caxton Gibbet Road Improvement scheme

Received 07 June 2021
From Wilkin Chapman LLP on behalf of Bedfordshire and River Ivel Internal Drainage Board


The Bedfordshire and River Ivel Internal Drainage Board (Board) is a public body and is named in the draft DCO which proposes to disapply section 23 and 32 of the Land Drainage Act 1991 (LDA91). in addition the DCO disapplies the Board's byelaws made pursuant to section 66 of the LDA91. The draft protective protections proposed by the DCO are not yet agreed by the Board and our representation is in connection with ensuring that the Board can continue to exercise its general supervision of all matters relating to the drainage of land and all other matters pursuant to the LDA 1991 within the relevant geographical areas affected by the Scheme.
