Note on Day 1 and prior to the first morning adjournment we experienced sound issues and the stream was not as clear as we would have liked. We apologise for the inconvenience caused.
The inquiry will be proceeding as scheduled with a reduction in the number of expected sitting days. The Inspector considers the scheduled sitting days on 13 September and 15-17 November will no longer be required.
As there are no main parties opposing the appeal, the inquiry will hear a brief opening statement from the Appellant only. This will be followed by representations from interested parties.
The Appellant’s witnesses can then be called to give their evidence in turn (which can be taken briefly under the circumstances), with an opportunity for interested parties and the Inspector to ask questions.
The normal conditions and obligations session will take place, before closing submissions.
