The council considers it essential to take the owner's interest in the land for the reasons in paragraph 2 above. The council has maintained the land for these purposes in the past. It is in the public interest for the land to be acquired for these purposes to ensure continued public access to the land. Your Right to Object 4. The owner's interest in the land has not yet been taken. 5. You have a right to object to the taking of the owner's interest in the land. 6.

If an objection is made: 8.1 The objector will be advised of the time and place of the hearing; and 8.2 The objector will have the right to appear and be heard personally or to be represented by a barrister and solicitor or any other person the objector authorises. Right to Compensation 9. This notice, and the right to object described above, relate to the taking of the owner's interest in the land and not to any right you may have to compensation. Under the Public Works Act 1981, the owner and any person with a registered interest in the land are entitled to full compensation, if the land is taken.
