41.   Exercise by other authorities of powers under ss. 39 and 40.

(1) The Minister, on the application of the council of a county, may direct, either generally or as respects the creation of a particular right of way, that the powers conferred by the two last foregoing sections or either of them on the council of a county district specified in the direction, being a district in the county in question, shall be exercisable by the County Council and shall not be exercisable by the council of the county district:
Provided that, in relation to the creation of rights of way in a National Park, this subsection shall have effect as if -
(a) references to the council of a county included references to a local planning authority whose area consists of or includes any part of the Park, and
(b) references to a county district in the county included references to a county borough or county district any part of which is comprised in the area of such a local planning authority.

(2) A County Council exercising a power by virtue of a direction under the last foregoing subsection shall consult the local planning authority, where that authority is a joint board, but shall not be required to obtain the consent of the board to the exercise of the power.

(3) Where it appears to the Minister in any particular case that there is need for a public right of way as mentioned in subsection (1) of the last foregoing section, and the Minister is satisfied as mentioned in that subsection, the Minister, after consultation with the appropriate authority, may direct the authority to make and submit to him a public path order creating the right of way or may himself make the order; and where the Minister gives a direction under this subsection, the provisions of subsection (3) of the last foregoing section shall not apply.

(4) In the last foregoing subsection the expression "the appropriate authority," in relation to the making of a public path order, means the authority upon whom power to make the order (whether the power is exercisable with the consent of any other authority or not) is conferred by the last foregoing section or by that section as modified by a direction given under subsection (1) of this section.
