415.     Application to Crown land.

In general, the Opencast Coal Act 1958 applies in relation to land1 in which there is a Crown or Duchy interest2 as it applies to land in which there is no such interest3. However, subject to any express provision in the Opencast Coal Act 1958 to the contrary4, the provisions of the Act do not apply to any land in which there is a Crown or Duchy interest, but no private interest5 other than any interest belonging to the Coal Authority6.
