The Secretary of State for Wales hereby gives notice that he has made an Order under section 247 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990, to authorise the stopping-up of the section of highway described in Schedule 1 to this notice. The stopping-up is authorised only in order to enable the development described in Schedule 2 to this notice to be carried out in accordance with planning permission granted by the County Council of the City and County of Cardiff, on 2nd June 1998, under Ref. 97/02272/C and on 30th April 1992, under Ref. 91/1939/R. The Order shall cease to have effect upon the cessation of the planning permission. The Order will require the provision of new highway which will be highway maintainable at the public expense, for which the County Council of the City and County of Cardiff shall be the Highway Authority. Copies of the Order and the deposited plan may be inspected, free of charge, during normal opening hours at the offices of Cardiff County Council, County Hall, Atlantic Wharf, Cardiff, or may be obtained, free of charge, from the Welsh Office Highways Directorate, Cathays Park, Cardiff CF1 3NQ (quoting Ref. ZC 510-5-71-20). If any person desires to question the validity of the Order or of any of the provisions contained therein, on the grounds: (a) that it is not within the powers of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990; or (b) that their interests have been substantially prejudiced by a failure to comply with any of the requirements of the Act; he may, within 6 weeks of 12th March 1999, apply to the High Court for the suspension or quashing of the Order or of any provision contained therein.
