Compulsory Acquisition Hearing 3 (CAH3)

Event Details

Compulsory Acquisition Hearing 3 – ‘Objections’, will take place on 17th October.  This is a hearing for those who are officially considered Affected Parties only.  That is, those whose land and/or property is directly impacted by the proposed LTC.

Find out more about this requirement and Compulsory Acquisition Hearings here.

If any Affected Persons (APs) objecting to Compulsory Acquisition (CA) or Temporary Possession (TP) requests wish to be heard then they should request to be heard in a Compulsory Acquisition Hearing (CAH3 or 4) both of which are to hear individual CA or TP objections. Please note that whilst you may express a preference to be heard at one or the other of the CAHs, the ExA’s primary consideration will be to ensure that a reasonable opportunity to be heard has been provided to all APs requesting to be heard: you may not be offered a hearing on your preferred date.

Please note that this hearing is specifically for those listed in the agenda, further CAH may possibly take place in Nov for other Affected Parties who have requested to speak at a CAH. The agenda for this hearing will be published at least 5 working days before the hearing.
