Attendance information

Before deciding whether to take an active part in the inquiry, you need to think carefully about the points you wish to make. All written submissions from application and appeal stage will be taken into account by the Inspector and re-stating the same points won’t add any additional weight to them. If you feel that taking part in the inquiry is right for you in whatever capacity, you can participate in a number of ways.

Taking part

To take part using video, participants will need to have access to Microsoft Teams (via an app or web browser). Read Microsoft guidance on how to use Teams.

Alternatively, you can take part by telephone. Please note that joining by telephone to the 020 number that will be used will incur charges. You should check actual rates with your provider. View call charges (GOV.UK).

If you wish to take an active part in the proceedings, please make clear in your response to the Case Officer whether you wish only to appear at the inquiry and make a statement, or whether you would also wish to ask questions on particular topics.

If you want to take an active part but feel unable to for any reason, and/or the points you want to make are not covered in the evidence of others, consider whether someone else could raise them on your behalf. Registered participants in whatever capacity will receive individual joining instructions, providing details of any requirements, guidance and support whether joining by Teams or telephone. You should note that the event will be recorded by the Planning Inspectorate for training and quality assurance purposes.

Observing the event
