Day 1 of the 6 day Inquiry into the Proposed Coate Water development

The Inquiry started today at STEAM, you can quietly walk in and out when it's in session, so you don't need to stay all day. Just walk in through the main entrance and turn right and go through the double doors at the end.

This is what Jean Saunders said about the times and detail of what happened today:
You need to know the following:
The Inquiry will be sitting from 9.30am-5pm tomorrow (Wednesday), 10am- 5pm (Thursday) and 9.30am-1pm on Friday.
Next week: Tuesday and Wednesday; 10am-5pm  - unless the timetable changes.
Those of you who have asked to speak are now likely to be heard tomorrow afternoon not later as indicated this morning by the Inspector.
The inspector is not Mr Grace but a chap called Geoffrey Hill who was only appointed last Thursday to conduct the Inquiry.
So far we have been hearing the Council’s case – traffic and landscape matters. The developers will present their evidence after us.
Rob Buckland MP has been given the opportunity to be heard on Friday at 9.30am. If you can make it to STEAM, please try to get along to offer moral support. 

 Lunch break.
