The Inspectors appointed to examine the draft Bridging Island Plan are currently inviting further representations on certain matters to inform the Examination in Public (EiP), with a closing date for receipt of responses by 5pm on Friday 22 October 2021. The EiP Programme was published, along with the invitation to submit further representations, on 11 October 2021.
Week Two of the EiP was originally scheduled to take place from Monday 22 November to Thursday 25 November 2021. Following a request from the Minister of the Environment, to take into account the sitting of the States Assembly during that week, the Inspectors have agreed that the proposed Week Two of the EiP hearing sessions will now be held from Monday 29 November to Thursday 2 December 2021.
Week One of the EiP hearing session is scheduled to be held from Monday 15 November to Thursday 18 November 2021 (with Day 5, Friday 19 November 2021 in reserve for overruns) and this remains unchanged.
An updated EiP Programme is being published to reflect the rescheduled hearing dates and will appear on gov.je/IslandPlanEiP. The Inspectors intend to issue a revised, final EiP Programme following the consideration of the further representations received. However, it is not envisaged any further major date changes will be necessary.
All proposed participants identified so far for Week Two have been contacted directly by the Programme Officer.
