Helen Many thanks for your e-mail. You are obviously not as familiar with LRCH and its team as I am. For two years I have been asking them for information, responses to e-mails and update meetings but no reply! Then suddenly last week they wanted everybody to attend a Zoom meeting call with just 48 hours notice but most couldn't manage it as they were already in meetings, abroad on business or otherwise unavailable. However, these issues were raised during the meeting: • Why weren't the Estates included in the Scoping Report? They didn't know why not and couldn't answer the reasons on why the Estates were not included within the application submission back in 2014 because they didn't work there! They did say they are amending the Report and re-submitting it - not good enough! They need to do the total site assessment exercise again....and they are not aware of the horrific contamination and other issues already existing on the site • During the Zoom call they also told us that the site could well be sold on to another developer if they are successful with the DCO Application but they can't guarantee any Option agreements if any were to be agreed and hence the PMG businesses and landowners are facing even further uncertainty . Unfortunately, all of this is impacting on businesses, already struggling after eight years of their dithering and also having to cope with the effects of the virus, HS1, Brexit etc. I would have hoped that The Planning Inspectorate would be an effective independent organisation capable of ensuring that all parties concerns are addressed so that the Applicant is given robust and constructive advice to progress their application. I understand your hands are tied so time to change the system and expose its flaws. Many thanks and please publish this as a formal response to the 's51 advice' - people must get the full story. I live in Bristol and as stated many times previously am more than willing to attend any meeting if it would be advantageous. Best wishes Dan

Advice given

Dear Mr Bramwell Thank you for your email addressed to my colleague in the Environmental Services Team. Please note during the pre-application stage, the Inspectorate is not required to publish any responses it receives to s51 advice unless further s51 advice is given to that response. Therefore, as previously advised, please continue to direct your concerns directly to the Applicant and where you are not satisfied, to raise your concerns with the local authority. In the meantime, the Inspectorate will continue to encourage the Applicant to engage with parties throughout its pre-application stage and should the application be accepted for examination, you will be provided with an opportunity to register as an Interested Party. Apologies this email was in reply to the below, I will reply to your later emails in due course. Kind regards Liam London Resort Case Team
