At some time during the afternoon our barrister specialising in Heritage matters, Jack Smyth, will be able to put our first witness forward.

Tuesday 26th July.
This is back to a 10.00 am start with a session for the five local residents who have indicated that they wish to make representations to the Inspector, Mr Gray. It is still possible for other residents to let the Inspector know that they wish to speak.
Later that day and possibly up until Thursday it will be the turn of the Catesby witnesses to speak and be cross examined by Nina and the Council’s barrister Jonathan Mitchell.
Friday 29th July
The final day of the Inquiry will be concerned with a discussion about conditions and 106 Obligations to be imposed if the Inspector decides he is going to allow the appeal. It may then take several months for a decision to be taken and issued.
