Thanks for posting this, tuttermouse. Could you please provide a report in the feedback section?viewtopic.php?f=35&t=9205
(Appreciate you may wish to wait for the result.)
Just a few comments:
We had no question for the local authority chap and accepted his statement.
This is probably the norm.
We gave each panel member a copy of what we were saying
I would advise future appellants against doing this. A copy for just the clerk is fine.
There was a narrow desk, about 60cm deep (as deep as an average kitchen worktop) with the three panel members on one side and us on the other.
The size of the table / distance from the panel probably varies, depending on which room you're in.
All in all, it was a positive experience.
Pleased to hear that.
Just how positive we'll be able to say once we get the results!
Glad you're not trying to anticipate, as it is impossible
to tell, even if you think it went well or badly. See:viewtopic.php?f=35&t=13216
