A40 virtual inquiry thought to be a Wales First

Anthony Vines last week appeared for the Welsh Government in a public local inquiry before Aidan McCooey an Inspector appointed by the Welsh Ministers.  The inquiry concerned improvements to the A40 west of Penblewin including the Redstone Cross junction near Narberth.

Whilst the Inspector held the Inquiry in Queen’s Hall, Narberth, where social distancing measures and other precautions were observed, some witnesses, including objectors, gave their evidence via Teams and the public were able to observe the entire proceedings via a live feed on the Inquiry’s website.  Translation services were also provided for those who wished to hear the proceedings in Welsh.

The inquiry has now closed and the Inspector has retired to prepare his report.

Anthony Vines practises in commercial and regulatory law and his profile can be found at http://www.civitaslaw.com/barristers/anthony-vines.

Queen’s Hall in Narberth was also the venue for an Elton John concert in 1970; although we expect that his outfit may have been somewhat different from those at the Inquiry and social distancing last week will definitely have been more pronounced.“
