Dear Mr Picton,
Thank you for your email of 20 January 2015.

Section 57 of the Planning Act 2008 defines Category 3 as follows:

(a) as a result of the implementing of the order,
(b) as a result of the order having been implemented, or
(c) as a result of use of the land once the order has been implemented,
to make a relevant claim.
This is subject to subsection (5).
(5) A person is within Category 3 only if the person is known to the applicant after making diligent inquiry
Therefore, we have an obligation to send correspondence to all addresses listed in the Book of Reference during the examination stage, and none of these can be removed.
