Tabled Evidence during the Joint Hearing

 

 

Draft Conditions as at 18 August 2014 - NOW SUPERSEEDED

It was agreed, prior to the adjournment of the hearing on Friday 15th August 2014, that the applicant’s advisers would work together with the MDC and Horizons regulatory teams over the weekend and today (Monday) to generate a set of DRAFT conditions reflecting the progress of discussions and evidence so far during the hearing.  The purpose of the attached set of DRAFT conditions is to set out clearly for all parties the proposed conditions that are agreed or disagreed between the applicant/requiring authority and the MDC/Horizons regulatory teams.  The attached DRAFT conditions are exactly that – they are drafts that have been produced by the planners representing MDC/Horizons regulatory teams and the applicant as a basis for discussion at the hearing.  The attached DRAFT conditions do not represent the conclusions of the Panel.   The Panel has had an opportunity to review the draft conditions and has added some questions to highlight matters that do not seem to reflect the evidence presented to date.  Submitters who intend to present statements to the re-convened hearing (in the week beginning 25th August 2014) will be able to consider the attached agreed and disagreed draft conditions in preparing their presentations for the re-convened hearing.
