The hearing sessions for the JSP will be confirmed by the Inspectors in due course. It is currently anticipated that the Examination in Public will begin in Spring/Summer 2019.

Mr Young will act as the contact point for any person who has made representations on the JSP Publication Plan and JSP Technical Evidence Work, and as a liaison between the Inspectors, the Councils and examination participants.

If you made representations on the JSP Publication Plan and/or JSP Technical Evidence Work, the Programme Officer will be in contact in due course.
