      Background Information
1.1   The East of England Regional Assembly (EERA), which is the Regional Planning Body (RPB) for the East of England, are undertaking the
      Thurrock/Lakeside Basin Single Issue Review (East of England Plan May 2008).
1.2   The Deposit Draft Thurrock/Lakeside Basin Single Issue Review (East of England Plan May 2008) was published for consultation on Monday 6 April
      2009.
1.3   The Secretary of State has decided that an Examination in Public (EiP) should be held to discuss and test the Deposit Draft Thurrock/Lakeside Basin
      Single Issue Review. The EiP is to be held by an independent Panel appointed by the Secretary of State. Jim Parke has been appointed as the Panel
      Chairman assisted by Peter Beasley as Panel Inspector.
1.4   Further information on the EiP process is available in the Notes for Participants prepared to assist people who have been invited to participate in, or
      who wish to observe, the EiP and in PPS11. These Notes are on the EiP website:
                                    http://www.planning-inspectorate.gov.uk/pins/rss/east_england_lakeside/index.htm
1.5   The deadlines for the submission of electronic (and any paper) copy written statements on the matters are by 5.00 pm, Friday, 10 July 2009.
1.6   The Examination in Public will commence on Monday 20 July 2009 at 2.00 pm and is anticipated to run for 1 week. It will be conducted in The Thurrock
      Hotel, Ship Lane, Aveley, Essex, RM19 1YN.

      Purpose of the Examination in Public
2.1   The main purpose of the EiP is to provide an opportunity for a structured discussion and testing in public, of the Deposit Draft before an independent
      Panel appointed by the Secretary of State. The discussion will be guided by a selection of matters arising from consultation on the Deposit Draft Review
      and what the Panel considers it needs to hear debated in order to test the soundness of the revision. This will provide the main basis on which the
      Secretary of State can decide whether any changes are required to the revision before it is adopted.
2.2   The broad questions selected by the Panel in consultation with the Government Office for the East of England (GO East) and the EERA are set out in the
      Timetable, List of Matters and Participants. They are designed to stimulate discussion about the main elements of the consultation on the Deposit Draft.
      Potential Participants have been selected in consultation with the GO East and EERA to ensure a broad mix of viewpoints on each Matter for discussion.
      In preparing written statements, and in discussion, participants will be asked to focus on the wording of the Deposit Draft and whether or not changes
      are required as well as the underlying issues.
2.3   The Examination will ensure that there is public discussion of those major issues of concern where the Panel considers that an examination could
      usefully provide further information. As the EiP is directed at the discussion of selected matters, and not the hearing of all representations, individual
      objectors do not have an automatic right to appear. The Panel will consider all written representations relating to the matters being examined.
2.4   In preparing its report following the Examination the Panel will include recommendations for amending the Deposit Draft. When completed the Panel
      Report will be published. The Panel Report, together with all the other consultation responses, must be taken into account when the Secretary of State
      decides whether any changes need to be made to the Deposit Draft. The Secretary of State will publish any proposed changes in the light of the report
      allowing at least eight weeks for comment.
