There was also an additional date (9 May) added by the independent Planning Inspector to hear matters specifically relating to a proposal by developers Lightwood Strategic for a proposed garden village at Monks Wood near Pattiswick, east of Braintree. The proposal, which the councils do not believe is a suitable development, could not be fully examined at the original hearing due to a delay in registering their representations to the Councils’ Plan. 

A more detailed version of this timetable, setting out the invited participants for each hearing session, can be found on the Examination Documents webpage of Braintree District Council's website.
