    * The Planning Inspectorate uses electronic communication wherever this is appropriate. Can information from the Planning Inspectorate about the examination of this application be sent to you in this way?


    The Planning Inspectorate aims to communicate with people by email wherever possible, as electronic communication is more environmentally friendly and cost effective for the Planning Inspectorate as a Government agency, given the volume and frequency of letters it needs to send to interested parties during an examination.

    Please state your preferred means of receiving updates on the examination of this application. If you say that you agree to receive communications by email, you can change your mind later provided you give us 7 days notice, either in writing or by email.

  2. Interest in land


    In this section "you" means either you or the person or organisation you represent if you have completed this form for your employer or another person or organisation. Interest means a legal interest in the land, such as you own, lease, rent, or occupy the land, or have some other legal right over or in relation to it.

    This section aims to identify whether:

    Select all options that apply

    Here you are being asked to describe your interest in the land that is the subject of the application or in any other land which you believe will or might be affected by this application.

    Section 57 (6) of the Planning Act 2008 defines who is entitled to make a relevant compensation claim if the development consent order were to be made and fully implemented.





    If the developer is applying for compulsory acquisition of land or of interests in or rights over land which is the subject of this application and you have an interest in any such land, would you like to speak at a compulsory acquisition hearing?


    One will only be held if the developer is applying for compulsory acquisition as part of this application. Only people who have an interest in the land to which the compulsory acquisition relates or any part of that land have a right to speak at this type of hearing. Others may be able to speak at a compulsory acquisition hearing at the discretion of the Examining Authority.
  3. Your Representation


    The Planning Act 2008 process is primarily a written examination process and if you are registered as an Interested Party you will have an opportunity to make a Written Representation about the application when the Examination begins.

    In this form, your Representation must include an outline of the principal submissions you intend to make in relation to the application. You cannot reserve a right to make a representation later without providing an outline of the points you intend to submit at this stage.

    Please note that your Representation must not include material:

    • that is vexatious or frivolous
    • about compensation for Compulsory Acquisition of land or of any Interest in or right over land
    • about the merits of policy set out in a designated National Policy Statement.

    The information you include in the 'Your Representation' section of this form will be used by the Examining Authority to carry out their Initial Assessment of Principal Issues and to decide the best way to examine the application.

    Here you must provide an outline of the main points you intend to make in relation to the application. Failure to provide this will mean that we are unable to register you as an Interested Party. Please aim to limit this section to no more than 500 words.

  4. Participation in the examination


    The following questions all relate to whether you intend at this stage to participate in various events in the examination process.

    * Do you intend to attend the preliminary meeting?


    This question has been included to provide the Planning Inspectorate with an indication of the numbers of people who may wish to attend, so that we can find a suitable venue for the meeting.

    Regardless of how you answer this question, you will still be invited to attend the preliminary meeting if you are registered as an interested party in this Application.

    If you decide not to attend, your status as an interested party will not be affected.

    * Do you intend to submit a written representation at a later stage?


    Written representations can be submitted once the examination has started.

    The deadline for submitting written representations will be notified to all interested parties and publicised on our website after the preliminary meeting.

    You do not have to submit a written representation during the examination if you consider that all the points you wish to make have been made in section 3 of this form, or have been adequately made by another interested party.

    * If an open floor hearing is held, would you like the opportunity to speak at it?


    * If an issue specific hearing is held relating to an issue raised by your representation, would you like to have the opportunity to speak at it?


    The examining authority will decide which issues require an issue specific hearing once all relevant representations have been considered.
