A Bill for an Act of the Scottish Parliament to incorporate and reconstitute the Pow of Inchaffray Drainage Commission received Royal Assent on 17 January 2019.
The Act of Scottish Parliament makes provision for the Commission’s functions and for the appointment of Commissioners. It will enable the calculation of the annual assessments payable by the owners of land (heritors) benefited by the Pow, the watercourse maintained by the Commission.
It also makes provision for meetings of the Commissioners and heritors; to make provision for the Commissioners to have access to the Pow over neighbouring land for necessary purposes and for the Commissioners’ consent to be required for activities affecting the Pow and adjacent land etc.; and for connected purposes.
ADA has been supporting the ongoing work of the Commission as it progresses with updating its governing legislation.
