Rookery South Energy from Waste Generating Station

MK Friends of the Earth - Andrew Lockley


Questioned why Friends of the Earth have not been listed in the Examining Authorities letter as an interested party which it would particularly like to attend the hearing.

Advice given

The issue specific hearings are not intended to be an opportunity for wide ranging discussions on a general topic nor for points already made in writing simply to be repeated. The hearings will focus on particular points where the Examining Authority wishes to ask questions directly of certain interested parties. The letter indicates those parties which the Examining Authority particularly wishes to ask questions of after reading their written representations. There will also be other interested parties, such as yourself, who have submitted written representations on the issue but that the ExA does not wish to ask questions of at this time. Any interested party can attend a hearing and, subject to the ExAs control over the conduct of the hearing, can speak at the hearing.
