The first day of the hearing did appear to go quite well, although it would be very difficult to predict which way the Inspector will go. He should play poker.
I did find it very interesting that the Inspector raised the question about whether the site would benefit a protection order without being prompted.
The site visit appeared to go well and a few points of interest, shall we say, were raised on the way round. Although again it would be very difficult to predict which way he will go.
Everybody involved has done the best they can and we should all be proud of the community spirit that has been shown throughout this endeavour.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you,and also on behalf of the action group, for your valued support throughout and your continued support for the Bleadon hill application.
Kind regards
Apologies currently away with the day job. Not back until the weekend.
Thank you and we will be attending tomorrow.
Many thanks for the notification.
