5.   Hearing of objections

It shall be the duty of the Board without undue delay to consider any objections which may be lodged within the prescribed time and in the prescribed manner, and to hear all parties whom the Board shall consider to be sufficiently concerned to entitle them to be heard. No objections shall be considered unless lodged within the prescribed period.

      (b)   a memorandum in Form 3 in the First Schedule, or as near thereto as circumstances permit, together with a diagram of the deviation approved by the Surveyor-General.

8.   Registration of notification

   (1) The initial notification referred to in regulation 7(a) shall be registered by the railway company in the Lands and Deeds Registry in the same manner as a deed affecting land is registered as soon as the Minister shall give his consent to the deviation.

   (2) The memorandum referred to in regulation 7(b) shall be registered in the Lands and Deeds Registry in the same manner as a deed affecting land is registered within six months from the date of completion of the deviation.
