Compulsory Acquisition Hearing 5 (CAH5)

Event Details

Compulsory Acquisition Hearing 5 – ‘Objections’, will take place on 21st November.  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 (CAH5) which is to hear individual CA or TP objections. Please note that we are now approaching the later part of the DCO examination, so if you wish to be heard it is important to register to speak before Deadline 6 (31 Oct 2023) while the opportunity is still available.

Please note that this hearing is specifically for those listed in the agenda, which will be published at least 5 working days before the hearing.

The Examining Authority (ExA) will publish a detailed agenda on the project webpage at least five working days in advance of the Hearing date. However, the actual agenda on the day of each Hearing may be subject to change at the discretion of the ExA.  This hearing is aimed at Affected Persons.
