Future Hospital - Public Inquiry Date Set
Monday 14 May 16:20
A date has been set for a public inquiry to examine the new future hospital planning application.
The inquiry will explore the planning issues in depth to ensure the application is right for Jersey. It will take place the week beginning Monday 17 September 2018 at St Paul’s Centre, St Helier.
The Minister for the Environment, Deputy Steve Luce decided to hold a public inquiry because the hospital application (PP/2018/0507) is for a significant piece of public infrastructure.
The inquiry will be led by Philip Staddon, the same independent inspector who considered the first application for a new hospital and which was reviewed in a public inquiry in November 2017.
Philip Staddon said he welcomed views from any resident, business or organisation about the planning application for the new hospital and that the inquiry team will ensure that anyone who wants to speak gets the chance to do so.
You can give your views to the inquiry in the following ways:
- In writing – contact the programme officer by 6 July 2018 with your written submission (known as a ‘statement of case’) of no more than 1,500 words
- In person at the public hearing – write to or email the public inquiry programme office by 6 July 2018 to say you wish to speak at the hearing
Written submissions or statements of case should be addressed to the programme officer Helen Wilson, care of the Department of the Environment, South Hill, St Helier, JE2 4US or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name and postal address in your submission.
The inquiry is open to the public throughout the week.
