Pow of Inchaffray Drainage Commission (Scotland) Bill Committee


About The Committee

The Pow of Inchaffray Drainage Commission (Scotland) Bill Committee was established on 19 April 2017 and will continue until the Bill is passed, falls or is withdrawn.

The Committee’s main role is to consider and report on the Bill at Preliminary Stage, including giving preliminary consideration to objections, and to scrutinise the Bill at Consideration Stage, including by giving further consideration to objections and debating amendments (and considering any objections to amendments) lodged.

 How to object to amendment 9 (new land plans), lodged to the Bill at Consideration Stage

 Amendments lodged to the Bill at Consideration Stage can be seen here:


  The Committee has agreed that any individual or organisation whose interests may be adversely affected by amendment 9 (relating to the new land plans) lodged to the Bill at Consideration Stage may lodge an objection to it. The amendment was lodged by the Convener of the Committee, Tom Arthur, on behalf of the promoters, and is as follows—

             In section 27, page 9, line 23, leave out <with the Bill for this Act> and insert <in the Office of the Clerk of the Parliament on 3 May 2018>

  The effect of the amendment is to ensure that the land plans used for the Bill, which show the land which benefits from the Pow, are those which were submitted on 3 May 2018, and not those submitted when the Bill was introduced on 17 March 2017. The promoter's estimates of how this is likely to affect annual assessments can be viewed at this link:

 The objection period for this amendment runs from 20 June 2018 until 20 August 2018. Any admissible objections submitted will be published on this page after the deadline.

 Further information about how to object to the amendment is available here:
