Hearings procedures and minutes

Hearings procedures

The Hearings Panel released Minute 1 on 13 July 2021 which set out the draft hearings procedures. The Hearings Panel held a conference at Te Rauparaha Arena on Monday 2 August 2021 to introduce themselves to submitters and to seek their feedback on the draft hearings procedures.

The Hearings Panel issued updated hearings procedures on 17 August 2021 as Minute 2 (you can view a Redlined version of Minute 2 to see what changes were made to the draft).

The purpose of the procedures is to facilitate a smooth and effective hearings process for all parties, and they clearly set out the actions required by submitters in preparation for the hearings. It is essential that all parties appearing at the hearings are familiar with the hearings procedures.

The Hearings Panel will continue to release procedural minutes throughout the course of the hearings. These are archived below.
