I beg to move amendment 123, in clause 35, page 20, line 40, at end insert—

‘(1A) Where the OEP has given a decision notice to a public authority but has not applied for an environmental review, any person with sufficient interest may apply for an environmental review.’

This amendment allows any person to apply for an environmental review where the OEP decides not to.
