§ Mr. David Porter
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment whether the appeal against refusal by Waveney distict council to demolish listed building 333 Whapload road, Lowestoft, Ref.: APP/T3535/89/804854 and Ref.: APP/T3535/A/89/130250 will be dealt with by written representation or public inquiry; why his Department has announced both methods for determination; and whether he will assist the appellant financially on his second appeal for the same building.
§ Mr. Moynihan
Although the appeals in question were originally to be dealt with by an exchange of written representations, the submissions made indicated that a public local inquiry was necessary in order to inform the inspector of all the relevant issues. This change in procedure does not make a further appeal necessary.
