Issue Specific Hearings begin in Salisbury

7 June 2019

Tuesday 4 June saw the first of the Issue Specific Hearings take place in Salisbury’s City Hall as part of the Development Consent Order (DCO) Examination.

The first hearing covered the draft DCO order, with future meetings expected to deal with issues such as cultural heritage, transport and biodiversity. At the hearings, the Examining Authority will take a deeper look at these issues, hearing evidence from a variety of organisations and individuals. In total seven hearings will take place in June.

Further information on these hearings can be found on the Planning Inspectorate website.

These follow the Open Floor Hearings (which took place in May), where a range of different people talked about various issues.
