(4)If a redevelopment scheme or amendment in respect of which a direction given under subsection (3) has been complied with is subsequently approved, with or without amendments, under section 29(4), or section 34 as read with section 29(4), of the principal Act, the Authority shall, if it wishes to proceed with that redevelopment scheme or amendment, ensure that sections 34C and 34D of the principal Act are complied with in respect of that redevelopment scheme or amendment.
