The final timetable for the incinerator inquiry has eventually been agreed.
The schedule was finalised following talks held after Tuesday’s opening session at the Corn Exchange and will include two evening sessions.
Campaigners, who had been critical of the delays in setting up the programme, have said they are satisfied with the arrangements.
KLWIN vice-chairman Mike Knights said: “We have worked hard to compose an adjusted timetable, and although some aspects are not as we would have liked, they are acceptable to us. We are very relieved that our witnesses will now be able to attend.”
The inquiry will resume on Tuesday morning, March 5, at 10am in the West Norfolk Professional Development Centre (PDC) on Kilhams Way, North Lynn, near the fire station.
The first seven days of evidence, until March 13, will see Cory Wheelabrator’s legal team set out their case for the development.
On March 14, Norfolk County Council’s lawyers will begin two days of their evidence before the hearing is adjourned until March 26.
Officials say the adjournment is because of a previously scheduled training course for planning inspectors.
When the inquiry resumes on March 26, the county council will complete their case before the Easter break.
After Easter, West Norfolk Council will open their arguments on April 3, with KLWIN following on April 11. The inquiry is scheduled to close on or around April 19.
On most days when the inquiry is sitting, evidence will start at 9.30am, though there will be a 10am start on April 3.
Evening sessions, for third parties who are otherwise unrepresented in the proceedings to make their case, will be held at the Corn Exchange on Tuesday, March 26 and the PDC on Tuesday, April 9. Both will run between 6 and 9pm and there will not be a morning session on either day.
