I beg to move amendment 217, in clause 36, page 22, line 11, at end insert “, and

(b) the urgency condition is met.”

This amendment provides that the OEP may only bring a judicial review under clause 36, rather than proceeding by way of information notice, decision notice and environmental review, in urgent cases. Amendments 218 and 219 define what is meant by urgent.
