Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)
This Order applies in respect of the properties listed in Schedule 2 transferred to councils of inner London boroughs and other bodies as a result of the abolition of the Inner London Education Authority.
Such transfer will have been by virtue of an Order made under the Education Reform Act 1988 (c. 40) (“the 1988 Act”) or by virtue of such an Order and the operation of section 23 of the Further and Higher Education Act 1992 (c. 13) (transfer of property to further education corporations). This Order provides that the council or body to which such property has been transferred shall pay to the council of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, as the body to whom all residual rights and liabilities of the London Residuary Body have been transferred, the cost of the repair and maintenance of that property incurred by the London Residuary Body prior to its transfer under the 1988 Act. The Order makes provision for payments that have already been made by the relevant council or body in respect of such cost.
The Order also amends and modifies the effect of the Education (London Residuary Body) (Property Transfer) Order 1992 (“the 1992 Order”). The 1992 Order transferred the former Wandsworth Boys’ Secondary School, Sutherland Grove, SW18 to the Council of the London Borough of Wandsworth subject to the condition that it be brought into use by 1st April 1995 (which date was later changed by order to 1st September 1997) as the site for a new school or as the site for a school transferring to that site. This Order substitutes a new date of 1st September 1999.
