Lightwood attend additional hearing session

In light of the North Essex Authorities (NEA’s) failure to register Lightwood’s duly made representations, and their subsequent absence from the opening week of the Examination hearings, the Inspector invited Lightwood to submit statements to and attend an additional session, together with all the invitees to the original Matter 1 hearing session.

Lightwood, again represented by Christopher Boyle QC, contested that the Section 1 Plan was unsound and not legally compliant on the basis that the NEA’s had failed to meet the Duty to Cooperate, Lightwood and other parties were prejudiced by the error made by the NEA’s and that the Sustainability Appraisal was deficient and inaccurate.
