The Examiner has been made aware that due to the period of mourning following the Queen’s death, councils are unable to hold a meeting before the 26th September, as notice of a meeting cannot be given until the period of mourning ends. On this basis, the deadline for optional statements in response to the Examiner’s questions will be extended to midday on Friday 30th September for parish and town councils only.

Once all statements are received, they will be circulated and placed on the latest news section of the examination website. This will be on the afternoon of 30th September.

9 September 2022 

The Examiner has published the Hearing programme (C4) and Briefing Note (C3) for the Hearing, which are both available to view in the Examination Document Library. The Council has also published the Notice of Hearing Arrangements (document C5).

The Hearing will be held in person at East Suffolk Council's office at East Suffolk House, Riduna Park, Station Road, Melton, Woodbridge, IP12 1RT on Tuesday 11th October 2022, starting at 9.30am
