Up until yesterday, the PINS website showed a date for the opening of registration of interested parties. Today, the website shows that you will publish the date for registration, implying that the original window for registration is no longer available. I am aware that The Infrastructure Planning (Applications: Prescribed Forms and Procedure) Regulations 2009 prescribe the publication of information regarding accepted DCO applications but am not aware that RSP have met the provisions of these regulations.
Can you please confirm the reason for the suspension of the registration period (and specifically whether this is in relation to the above referenced regulations).
In addition, can you confirm when the registration window is likely to be reopened.

Advice given

Changes to the Planning Inspectorate’s website were temporary and reflected testing in preparation for the forthcoming registration period.
For definitive information about the dates associated with this period you should await the Applicant’s formal notice of the accepted application under s56 of the Planning Act 2008.
