Mynydd y Gwynt Wind Farm

Query asking whether a presentation could be given to the Examining Authority and when would the appropiate time be to give it.

Cyngor a roddwyd

The most appropiate time to give a presentation to the Examining Authority (ExA) would be during an 'Open Floor Hearing'. This hearing gives members of the public the opportunity to make oral representations.
The Mynydd y Gwynt Wind Farm application is currently in the pre-examination stage. Once the Preliminary Meeting is held on 20 November 2014 and the Examination period formally opens, the Planning Inspectorate will issue a 'rule 8' letter setting out the confirmed Examination timetable. The timetable will identify when the Open Floor Heaings will be held.
You will be asked to confirm your attendance at any hearings identified in the examination timetable and whether you wish to speak. The Examining authority will control the conduct of the hearings. They will need to decide, based on the number of people who wish to speak at any particular hearing, whether there is time for you to make a presentation or whether oral representations will be time limited, in order to allow all those who wish to make an oral submission the opportunity to do so in the time available.
The case team can provide you with further advice about the conduct of any hearings closer to the event. You should note that any oral representations made are supplemental to the written representtaions made. Interested parties should not rely on raising points verbally that they have not already put in writting by the dealines that will be set out in the examination timetable.
