Hearing Statements for Renewable Energy Hearing Session 15
1.FOR THOSE WHO WISH TO MAKE COMMENTS ON THE COUNCIL’S NEW INFORMATION AND PROPOSED RENEWABLE ENERGY POLICY:
Statements should address the Inspector’s questions in the Matters & Issues Agenda linked here.
Eligibility to submit a Hearing Statement:
We have done our best to clarify who is eligible to submit a Hearing Statement, but we are still confused. The Programme Officer’s email to us on Thursday 25th May said:
“To clarify, please note that the statements deadline of 5 June 2017 is specifically for participants of the Renewable Energy Session 15 submitting a written statement, although the Inspector will accept statements from representors who made relevant representations during the FFC consultation on renewable energy, but are unable to participate in the session.”
This advice is not quite the same as previous advice the Program Officer has given to a CPRW member or as current advice on the website. The newest version says that those who submitted valid responses to the FFCs can put in a statement for Session 15 but we do not know what counts as being “unable to participate in the sesssion”.
Everyone will have a chance to comment on the Matters Arising Changes which will be the changes to the LDP (since the Further Focussed Changes) arising out of the Examination. These MACs will be the subject of a final additional Hearing Session on Friday July 21st and some time after that the Inspector will open a 6 week public consultation period on the finished MACs.
For further advice, contact the Programme Officer, Tracey Smith email@example.com Telephone 07919396609
Postal Address: LDP Programme Office, Room 12, The Gwalia, Ithon Road, Llandrindod Wells, Powys LD1 6AA
If you think you are eligible to submit a Hearing Statement, your submission material should be arranged to address one or more questions in the Inspector’s Matters and Issues Agenda for the Hearing Session15 (attached).
Your Hearing Statements will need to be submitted to Tracey Smith before Monday 5.00pm on 5th June, by email. Also, three paper copies on A4 with punched holes must be sent, or delivered, to Tracey Smith by the next day. All versions must have the representor number allocated to you when you submitted your FFC response and there is a 3,000 word limit.

2.FOR THOSE WHO WISH TO PARTICIPATE IN HEARING SESSION 15 ON RENEWABLE ENERGY ON 27TH AND 28TH JUNE:
We understand some of those who put their names down to participate in the Renewable Energy Hearings when responding to Further Focussed Changes have been contacted and asked to confirm their attendance. Others have not. The current list of confirmed participants emailed to us by the Program Officer is much reduced. If you are not on the list and have not told Tracey Smith that you want to withdraw, we recommend that you contact her as soon as possible (contact details above).
