It is considered likely that any properties that had been under Crown immunity had been instructed by their authorities to comply with the then current byelaws, but in the instances of infringements relating to the risk of contamination, modifications could be required. Other improvements could be required only where installation or modification took place after 1st December 2000, when Crown immunity was withdrawn by the Government.
