Enquiry

Would the Planning Inspectorate have recommended to the Secretary of State that s53 Authorisation be granted to RiverOak Investment Corporation LLP (ROIC), if it had been aware that ROIC had no continuing interest in the DCO process?
Would it have been ultra vires for the Secretary of State to have granted the s53 Authorisation if aware that the Applicant had no continuing interest in the scheme?
