Mynydd y Gwynt Wind Farm

John Morgan


It would be helpful to me ? and perhaps to you ? if you could let me know the way the proceedings will take place.
For example,
1. Will I only be expected to make an oral statement and possibly be cross examined by the Inspector?
2. Will I be able to cross examine or respond to other people making oral statements?

Unlike Open Floor Hearings (OFH), which generally have no specific agenda and allow Interested Parties to speak for a limited time regarding topics and issues based on previous written submissions, Issue Specific Hearings (ISH) are structured by an agenda issued by the Examining Authority (ExA).
We anticipate that the agendas for the Issue Specific Hearings scheduled for 17, 18 and 19 March 2015 will be published on the project website early next week and hard copies will also be made available at each of the scheduled hearings on the day.
As some Interested Parties have indicated to the case team that they wish to make oral representations at the ISHs, the ExA may use his discretion to allow attendees to make opening statements, if they so wish. As the examination is inquisitorial, as opposed to adversarial, the ExA will only ask further questions if he believes this is necessary for clarification on a particular subject matter.
